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.
