The Minnesota Wild have two new additions to the roster this weekend after signing Jordan Schroeder and Jonathon Blum.
Forward Jordan Schroeder has signed a two-year, two-way contract. He was a first round pick, No. 22 overall, by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2009 NHL Draft. He played two seasons with the University of Minnesota recording 73 points over the course of 72 games.
Schroeder has six goals and 15 points throughout 56 NHL games. This includes three goals and six points in 25 games with the Canucks. When playing with the American Hockey League with the Manitoba Moose and Chicago Wolves, Schroeder recorded 47 goals and 115 points in 192 games. Vancouver did not give a qualifying offer to Schroeder last season, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Defenseman Jonathon Blum signed a one-year, two-way contract. He was a first round pick, No. 23 overall, by the Nashville Predators in the 2007 NHL Draft. He spent the 2013-14 campaign with the Wild organization. He had zero goals and one point throughout 15 games with Minnesota, and seven goals and 29 points over the course of 54 games for Iowa in the AHL
Blum has played in 106 NHL games where he managed seven goals and 23 points. He was one of five NHL restricted free agents with the Wild and is the first to agree to a deal. Nino Niederreiter, Jason Zucker, Justin Fontaine and Darcy Kuemper are also restricted free agents.
Not solely a good hockey player, Blum was also named Iowa’s Man of the Year for his contributions to the Des Moines community last year.
