ST. PAUL (AP) -- The Minnesota Wild on Saturday announced a contract agreement with free agent forward Scott Pellerin, who was chosen from the St. Louis Blues in the June expansion draft.
Terms were not disclosed.
Pellerin, 30, originally was drafted by the New Jersey Devils, the 47th pick overall in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. After four years playing for the University of Maine and four seasons with the Devils organization, Pellerin was signed by St. Louis as a free agent in July 1996.
In his third full season of NHL play, Pellerin notched 23 points -- eight goals and 15 assists -- in 80 games for the Blues in 1999-2000. He has appeared in 346 NHL regular season games, scoring 56 goals and assisting on 79. He also has scored one goal and two assists in 31 playoff games.
Pellerin will report to the Wild's inaugural training camp in early September. The Wild begin play at the Xcel Energy Center in the Northwest division of the NHL's Western Conference in October.
