New Wild GM Fenton opens free agency with expected tweaks

When Minnesota Wild owner Craig Leipold changed general managers this spring, he was adamant about the strength of a roster he believed only needed some tweaking and not a total overhaul.

New GM Paul Fenton took the Wild into the first day of free agency by making several of those minor adjustments, highlighted by an enhanced third pairing of defensemen and more lower-line depth for a team that has made the playoffs six straight times but has not advanced past the second round in 15 years.

As the market opened on Sunday, the Wild announced agreements with former Dallas defenseman Greg Pateryn (three years, $6.75 million), restricted free agent defenseman Nick Seeler (three years, $2.175 million) and forwards J.T. Brown (two years, $1.375 million), Eric Fehr ($1 million) and Matt Hendricks ($700,000).
