Wild Re-Sign Fontaine, McMillan To 2-Way Deals
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild have re-signed forwards Justin Fontaine and Carson McMillan to one-year, two-way contracts.
The deals were announced by the team on Thursday.
The 25-year-old Fontaine led Houston in the AHL last season with 56 points in 64 games, including 23 goals. He scored 10 power-play goals and posted a plus-10 rating, putting him in position to compete for a roster spot in training camp. The former Minnesota Duluth star also led Aeros players with eight points in their five playoff games.
The 24-year-old McMillan was Minnesota’s seventh-round draft pick in 2007. He had 18 points in 64 games with Houston last season and has 15 games of NHL experience with the Wild.
