Wild signs pair of prospects to contracts

Eds: APNewsNow.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild have signed a pair of players: goalie Barry Brust to a multi-year contract and right wing Jesse Schultz to a one-year deal.

Brust posted a 24-16-3 record with a 2.27 goals against average last season for the Wild’s top minor league affiliate, the Houston Aeros. The 24-year-old tied for sixth in the American Hockey League with four shutouts and a .919 save percentage.

Signing Brust gives the Wild an ability to bring him up in case Niklas Backstrom or Josh Harding get hurt. Brust was a third-round draft pick by Minnesota in 2002.


The 25-year-old Schultz had 26 goals and 40 assists in 80 games last season for the Chicago Wolves in the AHL. He’s a cousin of Wild defenseman Nick Schultz who appeared in two NHL games in 2007 for the Vancouver Canucks.
