ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild signed defenseman Jordie Benn to a one-year, $900,000 contract on Friday, adding another veteran option after an offseason of change on the blue line.
The 34-year-old Benn had one goal, nine assists and a plus-7 rating over 39 games with the Vancouver Canucks and Winnipeg Jets last season.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild agreed to terms Thursday with defenseman Jon Merrill on a one-year, $850,000 contract, the third veteran they've added to the blue line in free agency.
The 29-year-old Merrill had five assists and 70 blocked shots in 49 games last season, with the Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens.
The Dallas Stars opened free agency Wednesday by signing three-time All-Star defenseman Ryan Suter and former Stanley Cup champion goaltender Braden Holtby, a pair of veterans whose contracts were bought out by their previous teams.
Before 30 NHL teams release the list of players available for the Kraken, many of them are shuffling the deck to make sure they're in good position for the Seattle expansion draft.
Dallas Stars goaltender Ben Bishop has waived his no-movement clause to be exposed in the Seattle expansion draft next week after approaching his team with the idea.
The move, which the team confirmed Thursday, allows Dallas to protect veteran goalie Anton Khudobin from the Kraken.
It's hard for Duncan Keith to say goodbye to yesterday.
Pekka Rinne and Kevan Miller, too. Even more difficult for Zach Parise and Ryan Suter because it wasn't their call.
Moving on from the past is an early theme of the NHL offseason.
Nine years after Zach Parise and Ryan Suter signed twin contracts together worth nearly $200 million with the Minnesota Wild, they are being bought out together in a stunning turn of events early in the NHL offseason.

After his top defensive pair faltered in Sundays loss at Chicago, Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said he would reevaluate whether to keep Ryan Suter and Matt Dumba together. Splitting them up, though, would have a trickle-down effect.
SAN JOSE, Calif. In just seconds, defenseman Nate Prosser went from the trailer on a shorthanded rush to being swarmed by five Kings players as the lone Wild attacker.
Rather than retreat, Prosser cut through Los Angeles defense before sending the puck by goalie Jonathan Quicks right side as he slid left the tying goal that erased a two-goal, third-period deficit for the Wild on Thursday.
