St. Paul, MN (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Wild signed forward Brad Staubitz to a two-year contract on Tuesday, one day after acquiring the rights to the restricted free agent in a trade with San Jose.

The deal is worth $1.15 million.

"I'm an energy, hardworking kind of team guy," Staubitz told the Associated Press in a telephone interview. "I fight for my teammates when I need to - for the team and for the momentum of the game. I think I bring grit, and I hope to contribute in that way. I'm a straightforward guy. What you see is what you get. I crash and bang and do what I do."

Minnesota sent a 2010 fifth-round draft pick to San Jose on Monday in exchange for Staubitz, who notched three goals and three assists with 110 penalty minutes in 47 games for the Sharks last season.

In 82 career games, all with the Sharks, the rugged 25-year-old winger has four goals and five assists with 186 penalty minutes.
