Marek Zidlicky expected to sign 3-year contract with Wild

Minnesota Wild defenseman Marek Zidlicky is expected to sign a three-year, $12 million contract by the end of the day, according to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune:

It’s expected he’ll sign on the dotted line by the end of the day, most likely before the Wild’s flight this afternoon to Calgary. There’s still a few issues to resolve, but it’s expected to happen. Basically, I hear it’s just crystalizing the language of a no-trade clause. Don’t have those details yet.

There were some concerns overnight that the Wild and Zidlicky were not going to be able to come to an agreement on a contract extension, leading the team to most likely trade him before the trade deadline. Zidlicky is in the final season of a four-year, $13.4 million contract, originally signed with Nashville before he was traded to Minnesota in 2008.
