After losing Marian Gaborik earlier in the day, the Minnesota Wild have found a scoring winger to replace him.

The club signed free agent forward Martin Havlat to a six-year, $30 million contract.

''We are excited to add the speed and scoring of Martin Havlat to our lineup,'' Wild GM Chuck Fletcher said in a statement. ''He is a terrific two-way player.''

In 81 games with the Chicago Blackhawks last season, Havlat registered 29 goals and 48 assists for 77 points - the Blackhawks' leading scorer last season.

The 28-year old was selected 26th overall by the Senators in the first round of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.

The Czech Republic native has 169 goals and 227 assists for 396 points in 470 career regular season games with the Senators and the Blackhawks.
