The Minnesota Wild signed the forward to a one-year deal worth $5.1 million for the upcoming 2021-22 season Monday, thus avoiding arbitration.

Fiala, acquired in a trade with Nashville on Feb. 25, 2019, has led the Wild with a combined 43 goals and 94 points over the past two seasons (114 games).

In 2020-21, Fiala notched 20 goals and 20 assists in 50 contests. He ranked first on the team in game-winning goals (5), shots on goals (162), power-play points (14) and takeaways (41).

In 337 career games with Minnesota and Nashville, Fiala has racked up 198 points (91 goals, 107 assists). He has recorded 12 points – nine goals and three assists -- in 29 career playoff games.

With Fiala re-signed, the Wild’s offseason attention turns back to getting reigning Calder Trophy winner Kirill Kaprizov to ink a long-term deal.
