The Wild re-signed forward Nick Palmieri to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Tuesday.

Palmieri, 23, was acquired from the New Jersey Devils on Feb. 24 in a trade that sent defenseman Marek Ziclicky to New Jersey.

During the lockout Palmieri played for Wild affiliate Houston Aeros where he scored nine goals and 10 assists in 36 games.

Palmieri played nine games with the Wild last season.
