Wild Agrees To Terms With Falk

The Wild blue line retains size and grit today, as Minnesota has agreed to terms with defenseman Justin Falk. After tendering the restricted free agent with a qualifying offer last week, the Wild agreed to terms with him on a one-year, one-way contract.

The 6-foot-5 blueliner has played with the Wild in parts of the previous three seasons, last year skating in a career-most 47 games. He scored his first-career goal on a power play against the Colorado Avalanche on Jan. 24.

Still considered a rookie last season, Falk ranked sixth in ice time and eighth amongst rookies in blocked shots (78).

In 72 NHL games with the Wild, the Snowflake, Manitoba native has compiled 12 points (1-11=12) and 60 penalty minutes. He was Minnesota’s fourth-round selection (110th overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Always outgoing and a team-first player, 23-year-old was on the third leg of the Wells Fargo Minnesota Wild Road Tour last week. To see the Wild TV recap of Falk and the Road Tour, click here.
