Bagnall signs with Wild

The Manchester Monarchs lost their captain on Friday when defenseman Drew Bagnall signed a one-year, two-way contract with the NHL's Minnesota Wild.

Bagnall is expected to open the year with the Houston Aeros, the Wild's AHL affiliate, and could end up as their captain.

A year ago, Bagnall recorded one goal and 11 assists for Manchester and also had 113 penalty minutes, which was third on the team. He was part of a defensive unit that allowed just 200 goals during the regular season, which was fourth in the AHL.

In his three years with the Monarchs, Bagnall had 30 points (three goals, 27 assists) and 378 PIMs in 191 games.

Bagnall said a final good-bye to Manchester fans on the team's Facebook page.
