The Minnesota Wild and Calen Addison have come to terms on an agreement just in time for training camp.

The club re-signed the restricted free-agent defenseman to a one-year, $825,000 contract, the team announced Tuesday.

Addison was Minnesota's last remaining RFA. He'll be an RFA again after the 2023-24 campaign and is under team control until 2027.

In 2022-23, his first full NHL season, the 23-year-old produced three goals and 26 assists while averaging 16:07 of ice time per game in 62 contests. His underlying numbers were stellar offensively - especially on the power play, where he tallied 18 of his assists.


Addison is expected to quarterback the top power-play unit once again. At five-on-five, he'll battle with fellow youngster Brock Faber for top-four minutes on the right side of Minnesota's blue line behind captain Jared Spurgeon.

The Wild acquired Addison from the Penguins in a 2020 trade that sent Jason Zucker to Pittsburgh. The Pens selected Addison 53rd overall in the 2018 NHL Draft.
