Minnesota is keeping 2008 first-round pick, defenseman Tyler Cuma, around a little while longer.

The one-time 23rd overall pick re-signed with the Wild on a one-year, two-way contract.

Cuma, 23, has played just one game in the NHL (during the 2011-12 season) while working on his game otherwise in the AHL. He’ll enter Wild camp in September competing for a spot against newcomers like Keith Ballard, Jonathon Blum, incumbents Nate Prosser and Clayton Stoner, and rookie Matt Dumba.
