The Minnesota Wild inked defenseman Jon Merrill to a three-year, $3.6 million contract extension on Tuesday.
Merrill was an impending free agent following this season, so the deal will keep him in Minnesota through 2024-25. He signed a one-year contract with Minnesota in free agency last July.
In 33 games so far this season, Merrill has three goals -- already matching his career high -- and eight assists along with 51 blocked shots.
The Wild are the 29-year-old's fifth NHL team following stints with the New Jersey Devils (2013-17), Vegas Golden Knights (2017-20), Detroit Red Wings (2020-21) and Montreal Canadiens (2021).
Merrill has scored 77 points (15 goals, 62 assists) in 438 career games over nine seasons.
