MINNEAPOLIS, MN –

The Minnesota Wild are strengthening their depth, adding a experienced minor leaguer. The team has announced that they have signed defenseman Dakota Mermis to a one-year, two-way contract. Both players will make the minimum $700K at the NHL level; Mermis will get $250K in the AHL.

Mermis, 26, has a chance of making an impact on the NHL roster after playing in ten games with the New Jersey Devils this season. A productive, puck-moving defenseman, Mermis has shown an ability to contribute offensively even as a spot starter. Although the Wild have a solid top-six locked in, Mermis should compete for a roster spot as an extra defender.

One of the greatest things about Kurt and all the people with KO is that they bring in guys like Barry Karn and all these different skating and skill people that come in and help us to develop. They care about us off the ice but they obviously have to care about us on the ice and they bring in people to work with us to help us be better and I think that’s special.
