ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild re-signed enforcer Matt Kassian to a two-year deal.

The Wild announced the deal on Friday. The 25-year-old Kassian played in 24 games for the Wild last season. He scored both of his goals in a game against Montreal on March 1 and racked up 55 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-4 Kassian was picked in the second round of the 2005 draft and debuted with the Wild in 2010.

The move comes two days before the start of free agency, where the Wild are expected to be aggressive pursuers of some of the biggest names on the market, including New Jersey's Zach Parise and Nashville's Ryan Suter. The new league year begins on Sunday, when teams can start chasing free agents.
