The Minnesota Wild re-signed restricted free agent Jason Zucker on Wednesday, inking the 24-year-old winger to a two-year contract worth $4 million.

Zucker scored 13 goals and added 10 assists for the Wild last season after breaking out during the 2014-15 season, scoring 21 goals despite missing 32 games with a broken collarbone.

"For me, I just need to make sure that I have a good offseason like I know I can, and then come in for training camp ready, and better than I ever have," Zucker told Wild.com.

A second-round pick of the Wild out of the U.S. National Team Development Program in 2010, Zucker spent two seasons with the University of Denver before signing with Minnesota in 2012.
