The Minnesota Wild re-signed restricted free agent defenseman Zach Palmquist to a one-year, two-way contract on Wednesday.
Palmquist, 26, will make $726,000 in the NHL and $70,000 at the American Hockey League level.
Palmquist totaled 21 points (two goals, 19 assists) and 20 penalty minutes in 72 games with the AHL’s Iowa Wild in 2016-17, leading team defensemen in games played, ranking second in assists and third in scoring.
The 6-foot, 187-pound native of St. Paul, Minn., owns 35 points (six goals, 29 assists) and 50 penalty minutes in 149 games during parts of three seasons with Iowa (2014-17).
Palmquist totaled 96 points (25 goals, 71 assists) in 160 games during four seasons (2011-15) with the Minnesota State Mavericks, never missing a game during his collegiate career to set a school record for consecutive games played. He originally signed with Minnesota as a free agent on March 30, 2015.
