Minnesota Wild sign John Madden
No, not the NFL Legend. The Minnesota Wild signed veteran forward John Madden to a 1 year $1 million contract. He is 37 and had played for the New Jersey Devils for 9 seasons until playing with the Chicago Blackhawks last season. Madden is considered a defensive specialist and a great locker room guy. He's also been a great penalty killer and has the ability to score shorthanded goals. Last season he played in 79 games and recorded 23 points with the Stanley Cup winning Blackhawks. Welcome aboard John Madden!
