MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Wild finished a drawn-out negotiation with Mikael Granlund by locking up the center with a two-year deal on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old Granlund had eight goals and 31 assists last season. He ranked third on the team in plus-minus rating with a plus-17 and the team hopes he continues his path to becoming one of the team's top playmakers.

Granlund has played three seasons with the Wild since coming over from Finland. He has 88 career points and has scored six goals in 13 career playoff games.

The Wild also announced a two-year deal with rookie defenseman Mike Reilly. He had six goals and 36 assists in 39 games as a junior for the University of Minnesota last season. He grew up in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen.
