The 27-year-old Dupuis had 10 goals and 16 assists in 67 games for the Wild last season. He will make $798,000 next season.

Entering his fifth full season, Dupuis has shown the ability to be a productive scorer for the Wild. He had his best season in 2002-03, registering career-highs with 20 goals, 28 assists and a plus-17 rating in 80 games.

Dupuis was one of the Wild's two remaining unrestricted free agents who was unsigned. Forward Mikko Koivu, brother of Montreal Canadiens captain Saku Koivu, is still unsigned.
