Wild sign Winnik to 1-year deal after training camp tryout
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild have signed left wing Daniel Winnik to a one-year, $660,000 contract.
Winnik was in training camp on a tryout basis. He was a free agent after a career-high 12 goals in 72 games last season for Washington.
The 32-year-old Winnik became more valuable to the Wild with a back injury limiting left wing Zach Parise, and Winnik was rewarded Wednesday with a contract. He’s been on the fourth line with center Matt Cullen and right wing Tyler Ennis.
The Wild will be his eighth NHL team. He played two seasons for Wild coach Bruce Boudreau when they were both with Anaheim.
