The Minnesota Wild signed center Kyle year contract extension on Sunday.

Brodziak, 27, has 15 goals and 29 points through 58 games this season with Minnesota, his third with the team.

He broke into the NHL in 2005-06 with the Edmonton Oilers after being selected in the seventh round of the 2003 draft. In four seasons with the Oilers, Brodziak registered 26 goals and 59 points.

In 395 career games, Brodziak has scored 66 goals and added 91 assists for 157 points.

He also brings a much needed element of toughness for the Wild, with 64 hits and 43 penalty minutes this season.
