ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Wild have signed defenseman Justin Falk to a one-year, two-way contract.
Under the deal announced Friday, Falk will be paid his NHL salary only if he is on the NHL roster. If he is sent to the AHL, he will get a minor-league salary.
The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Falk, from Snowflake, Manitoba, had two assists and 20 penalty minutes in 21 games with the New York Rangers last season.
