News: The Minnesota Wild have signed Niederreiter to a three-year contract. The Wild announced the deal Thursday. Impact: Minnesota had been negotiating with Niederreiter all summer and time was running short with training camp set to begin next week. But the two sides finally got the deal done, ensuring that the 22-year-old Niederreiter will remain with the team that helped jumpstart his career after it began with the New York Islanders. Niederreiter came to Minnesota in a trade last summer and had 14 goals and 22 assists to help the Wild to the playoffs.(STATS, 5:04pm)

News: Niederreiter signed a three-year, $8 million contract with the Wild on Thursday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: The new deal confirms Niederreiter's availability for training camp while assuring the winger doesn't flee for the KHL. Niederreiter still has a ways to go on the defensive end, but the former top-five draft pick has all the offensive skills in his toolbox, which should eventually allow him to settle in as a frontline scorer for the Wild. For the upcoming season, he'll play somewhere in the team's top-nine. Given the Wild's strong crop of forwards, Niederreiter shouldn't have much difficulty reaching the 40-point mark no matter which line he lands on.(RotoWire, )
