Nick Palmieri

The Minnesota Wild have agreed to terms with RFA forward Nick Palmieri on a one-year, two-way contract.

Palmieri, 23, was taken by New Jersey in the third round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He came to Minnesota last season as part of the Marek Zidlicky trade and appeared in nine games for the Wild, averaging over 10 minutes per contest.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound winger has been playing with AHL Houston, where he racked up 9G-10A-19PTS in 36 games — and according to Mike Russo of the Minnesota Star-Tribune, Palmieri’s now fighting for the Wild’s final spot at forward heading into this season.

According to Capgeek, Palmieri will make $577,500 at the NHL level this year and $65,000 in the AHL. So, as you can imagine, he’s probably quite motivated to stick in Minnesota.
