Wild agree to terms on contract with defenceman Jonathon Blum, formerly of Predators

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have agreed to terms on one-year, two-way contracts with free agent defencemen Jonathon Blum and Jon Landry.

The team announced the deals on Friday, but the contracts pay less if the player is in the minors.

The 24-year-old Blum had one goal and six assists in 35 games for Nashville last season. He was a first-round draft pick by the Predators in 2007. Over the past three years, Blum played 103 games.

With Ryan Suter, Jonas Brodin, Keith Ballard, Marco Scandella, Jared Spurgeon and Clayton Stoner, the Wild have their blue line all but set. Blum, Nate Prosser and 2012 first-round draft pick Matt Dumba will also be in the mix for a roster spot.

The 30-year-old Landry played in the AHL last season.
