Minnesota Wild sign Jose Theodore to one-year contract

The Minnesota Wild have added Jose Theodore to the mix, signing the former Hart Trophy winner to a one-year contract.

Specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The Wild have been in need of a backup goaltender for Niklas Backstrom ever since Josh Harding went down with a knee injury, which may force him to miss the entire season.
