St. Paul, MN (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Wild added depth to their defense by signing former first-round pick Jonathon Blum to a one-year, two- way contract on Friday.

The 24-year-old Blum joins the Wild after spending parts of the past three seasons with the Nashville Predators, who selected the California native 23rd overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Blum posted one goal and six assists in 35 games during the truncated 2013 campaign. In 91 career NHL games, he has collected seven goals and 15 assists.

The Wild also inked defenseman Jon Landry to a one-year, two-way contract. Landry, 30, has yet to play in the NHL and is coming off a 33-point (8g, 25a) campaign with the New York Islanders' AHL affiliate in Bridgeport.
