ST. PAUL, Minn. - Stephane Veilleux and the Minnesota Wild agreed to terms Saturday on a one-year contract, avoiding a salary arbitration hearing.

The 26-year-old Veilleux, who has carved a niche as a left wing on the Wild's checking line, scored a career-high 11 goals and added seven assists in 77 games last season.

He has played five seasons with the Wild, who drafted him in the third round in 2001.
