Veilleux, 26, played in 77 games for the Wild last season, scoring 11 goals and adding 7 assists. This doesn't give him much pool value heading into the coming season and his potential doesn't seem to be much higher, although his numbers have slightly gotten better over the last three seasons. Don't be in a big hurry to snap him up, however. You may want to wait until the mid-season mark, before you make any judgements.

The inclusion of Veilleux to the line-up does give the Wild 19 players signed on for next season at a salary cap hit of $47.5 million. That puts the team in the middle of the pack for salary cap numbers and the only major signing left to do will be restricted free agent forward, Pierre-Marc Bouchard, who is also up for an arbitration hearing this summer.
