Genoway Signs Two-Year Extension With Wild

A second former Sioux restricted free agent-to-be has re-signed with his current team. A day after Brian Lee was extended by Tampa Bay, defenseman Chay Genoway re-signed with the Minnesota Wild. Genoway appeared in one game with Minnesota last season, but had a very nice rookie season with the AHL's Houston Aeros.

Aside from contract length, terms of the deal have yet to be released. It will be a two-way deal with a base NHL salary of at least $850,500 per year (that number is based on the NHL CBA, which stipulates qualifying offers for players making more than $660,000 but less than $1 million must include a 5% raise from their previous salary). Here is the updated Sioux NHL free agent list:

Jason Blake Anaheim UFA
Taylor Chorney Edmonton UFA
Mike Commodore Tampa Bay UFA
Matt Frattin Toronto RFA
Chay Genoway Minnesota RFA Minnesota 2 Years, 2-Way Contract
Brian Lee Tampa Bay RFA Tampa Bay 2 Years, $2.3 Million
T.J. Oshie St Louis RFA
Zach Parise New Jersey UFA
Chris Porter St Louis UFA
Chris VandeVelde Edmonton RFA
Matt Watkins Phoenix UFA
