Wild re-sign prospects Matt Kassian and Nate Prosser to two-way contracts

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have re-signed prospects Matt Kassian and Nate Prosser.

The deals were announced Wednesday. Kassian, a left-winger, got a two-year contract and Prosser, a defenceman, got a one-year deal.

The 23-year-old Kassian led Houston in penalty minutes with 149 last season. The team's second-round draft pick in 2005, Kassian had six points in 59 games for the Aeros in the AHL.

The 24-year-old Prosser was signed in March as a free agent out of Colorado College. The native of Elk River appeared in the last three games of the regular season for the Wild.
