The Minnesota Wild maintained their front-line depth Tuesday by re-signing restricted free agent forward Jason Zucker to a two-year contract.
It's a two-way deal in the first season and one way in the second, ensuring that Zucker will make the same amount in year two whether he's playing in the NHL or the American Hockey League.
In 21 games last season, the steady Zucker had four goals and five points. He played in 20 games the previous season for the Wild and also had four goals and five points.
The 22-year-old Zucker sustained a knee injury late last season.
