The Minnesota Wild wanted to add organization depth in the way of two-way contracts and did so Friday by agreeing to terms with defensemen Jonathon Blum and Jon Landry. Both agreed to one-year, two-way contracts, giving Minnesota the option to use either in the NHL or with the Wild’s affiliate in the American Hockey League, which is beginning its first season in Iowa next year. Blum, 24, played in 35 games for the Nashville Predators last season with one goal and six assists. In three seasons with Nashville, Blum has seven goals, 15 assists and 20 penalty minutes in 91 career NHL games. He had one goal and 11 assists in 34 games in the AHL last season with the Milwaukee Admirals, and had 23 goals and 90 assists in 236 games with Milwaukee.
