The Wild has re-signed right wing Jordan Schroeder to a one-year, two-way contract, according to multiple sources. The deal is worth $650,000 in the NHL and $275,000 in the minors with a guarantee of at least $300,000.
The new contract erases a Wednesday arbitration hearing in Toronto. Things got contentious last week when the Wild, for no other purpose, placed Schroeder on waivers to strengthen its case that he didn't deserve a one-way contract.
It was the fourth time in less than a year that Schroeder passed through waivers without being claimed by 29 other teams.
Schroeder, 25, drafted 22nd overall in Vancouver, has five goals and seven assists in 51 games the past two years with Minnesota. In Iowa, he has 24 goals and 38 assists in 75 games.
Defenseman Matt Dumba remains the Wild's lone unsigned restricted free agent.
As I wrote last week, there have been ongoing talks between Wild assistant GM Brent Flahr and agent Craig Oster. The two are expected to meet face to face in Calgary at the Hockey Canada camp.
