Media outlets are reporting that the Minnesota Wild have agree to a six-year, $30 million contract with former Chicago Blackhawks wing Martin Havlat.

Havlat, 28, had a solid season in Chicago, scoring 77 points. He has dealt with health issues in the past, but was able to play in 81 regular season games last year.

Chicago fans will remember a handful of clutch, game-winning goals from Havlat in the memorable 2009 playoffs. But, with the Blackhawks acquiring Marian Hossa on Wednesday, Havlat wasn't asked back to Chicago.

Minnesota, meanwhile, is replacing a departed star of their own. Marian Gaborik signed with the New York Rangers on Wednesday.
