Wild signs Koivu to 7-year deal

Email

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Wild have signed center Mikko Koivu to a seven-year contract extension, which would keep the franchise center in Minnesota through the 2017-18 season.

The team made the announcement on its website Thursday.

Koivu was selected as the Wild's first permanent captain in October and is considered the cornerstone of a franchise that has very little depth behind him at center.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
