Wild sign Jonathon Blum, Jon Landry to one-year, two-way deals

The Minnesota Wild announced the signings of defensemen Jonathon Blum and Jon Landry to one-year, two-way contracts on Wednesday.

Originally drafted in the first round of the 2007 draft by the Nashville Predators, Blum played in 91 games in a three-year span. He totaled seven points in 35 games last season (one goal, six assists).

Nashville chose not to tender the 24-year-old's contract, making him a unrestricted free agent. Blum has a shot at grabbing a roster spot for the Wild, but could start the year in the AHL if he is able to clear waivers.

Landry, a 30-year-old journeyman, was signed by the New York Islanders as a free agent in 2012 and spent last season with the Islanders' AHL squad, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (eight goals, 25 assists).
