Matt Cullen will play another year in the National Hockey League with Minnesota Wild

Cullen signed a 1-year, $1 million deal with his former team Wednesday - which includes $700,000 in potential bonuses, the Star Tribune in Minnesota reported.

Matt Cullen will play another year of hockey, but it won't be with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Matt's dad Terry says that there was interest from a lot of teams when Cullen made a decision to return to the league, but narrowed his choices between Pittsburgh and Minnesota. He played three seasons for the Wild from 2010-13, his first return to Minnesota since launching his career at Moorhead High School and St. Cloud State.

Cullen scored 13 goals and totalled 31 points during the regular season past year, adding two more goals in the postseason.

Cullen will be entering his second go-around with the Wild. Cullen played for Carolina, in two separate stints, and won a Stanley Cup with the Hurricanes in 2006.

In 19 National Hockey League seasons, Cullen has appeared in 1,366 games with 248 goals and 689 points.
