Minnesota Wild re-sign defenceman Marco Scandella to 2-year contract

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have re-signed defenceman Marco Scandella to a two-year contract.

The team announced the deal on Monday.

Scandella was eligible to be a restricted free agent, but the Wild locked the 23-year-old before he could hit the market. Scandella missed training camp in January because of a groin injury and spent most of this season with the Houston Aeros in the AHL, recording 17 points in 45 games.

The second-round pick in the 2008 draft played in six regular season games for the Wild. Added to the active roster again right before the playoffs, Scandella had a goal and an assist in five games against the Chicago Blackhawks. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound native of Montreal has four goals and 11 assists in 89 career NHL games.
