T. PAUL, Minnesota (Ticker) - Saku Koivu has put down roots in Montreal. His younger brother apparently is doing likewise in Minnesota.

The Minnesota Wild announced Tuesday that they have re-signed center Mikko Koivu to a multi-year contract.

While Saku Koivu, 31, has played 10 seasons with the Canadiens and is their captain, his 23-year-old brother just completed his rookie season with the Wild, recording six goals, 15 assists and 40 penalty minutes in 64 games.

Mikko Koivu also joined his brother on Finland's 2006 Olympic team, which went on to win the silver medal in Torino.

Also Tuesday, the Wild signed center Jason Morgan, who had been with the Chicago Blackhawks, to a one-year contract. The 29-year-old had one goal and one assist in seven games with Chicago in 2005-06.
