ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild added one of their top prospects for the stretch run of the race for the playoffs, signing left wing Jordan Greenway to a three-year, entry-level contract on Monday.
The 6-foot-6, 230-pound Greenway was expected to join the team in time to play at Nashville on Tuesday, with seven games to go in the regular season. The Wild are in third place in the Central Division, just ahead of a crowded race for the two Western Conference wild cards.
Greenway had 92 points in 112 games for Boston University. The Terriers lost to Michigan in the Northeast Region final of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday.
