Stephane Veilleux has signed a one-year/$737,500 contract with the Minnesota Wild, avoiding salary arbitration.
Veilleux is not likely to burn up scoresheets with his goal scoring. He only notched 11 goals in 77 games last season. He's a typical grinder, bringing high energy, grit and no fear of fighting for the puck along the boards. Veilleux little fantasy value as he was a minus 13 with 61 penalty minutes in addition to his 18 points.
