The Wild Wednesday announced that they have re-signed forward Kevin Fiala to a two-year, $6 million contract ($2.5 million in 2019-20 and $3.5 million in 2020-21). He was a restricted free agent. 

Fiala, 23, recorded 39 points (13-26=39) and 36 penalty minutes (PIM) in 83 games last season with the Minnesota Wild and Nashville Predators. He set career highs in assists, PIM, games played and TOI/game (15:38) and was one of three players in the NHL to play in more than 82 games last season. Fiala was acquired by Minnesota from the Nashville Predators in exchange for Mikael Granlund on Feb. 25, 2019 and tallied seven points (3-4=7) in 19 games with the Wild.

The Wild hit the ice for their first training camp practice on Friday, and with Fiala signed, the whole team will take part, although it could take a few days for Fiala's paperwork to get squared away.
