Wild re-sign defenseman Marco Scandella ST. PAUL (AP) — The Minnesota Wild have re-signed defenseman Marco Scandella to a two-year contract. The team announced the deal on Monday. Scandella was eligible to be a restricted free agent, but the Wild locked the 23-year-old before he could hit the market. Scandella missed training camp in January because of a groin injury and spent most of this season with the Houston Aeros in the AHL, recording 17 points in 45 games. The second-round pick in the 2008 draft played in six regular season games for the Wild.
