Wild sign goaltender Dubielewicz for depth behind Backstrom

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Wild have signed veteran goaltender Wade Dubielewicz to add depth behind all-star Niklas Backstrom.

The move gives the Wild a third goaltender on the roster and more stability should they decide to trade backup Josh Harding, who had a 2.21 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage last season. The Wild signed Backstrom to an extension that will make him the No. 1 goaltender for the next four years.

The 30-year-old Dubielewicz has a career record of 17-15-1 with a 2.64 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage in 40 career appearances with the New York Islanders and Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Wild also signed right wingers Duncan Milroy and Jon DiSalvatore to contracts.
