Matt Cullen is joining the Minnesota Wild for his last and 20th season in the NHL. The hope for himself and Wild fans is his playoff experience and flexibility in the lineup will allow the Wild to make a deep playoff run.
Here is Russo breaking more news on Twitter:

Cullen will slot in right away as 4th line center. He also is one of the best penalty killers in the NHL still and can quarterback a power play when needed. If Coyle struggles at center and Kunin/Ek do not show promise in training camp you could see Cullen bumped up to third line even.
Personally, I am excited to have him on the team again. We just have to hope the ultimate grinder can fight off father time for one more season and bring home his third Stanley Cup in a row this time with the Minnesota Wild!
Here is a career highlight video from “Matt Cullen Is My Dad” on you tube.
And here is Mark Parrish talking about how he and Cullen ended up at St. Cloud State together over the Gophers:
