ST. PAUL (AP) -- First-round draft pick Brent Burns signed with the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday.
Burns, an 18-year-old right wing who played for the Brampton Battalion in the Ontario Hockey League last year, was taken by Minnesota with the 20th overall selection in June. He has practiced with the Wild since training camp began but wasn't allowed to play in any exhibition games without a contract.
