The Minnesota Wild announced Monday that the NHL club has signed forward Jordan Greenway to a three-year, entry-level contract starting with the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

Greenway recorded 35 points (13 goals, 22 assists) and 52 penalty minutes in 36 games during his junior season at Boston University, helping the Terriers claim the 2018 Hockey East tournament championship and advance to the NCAA Northeast Regional Final.

Greenway also served as an alternate captain in 2017-18, ranking tied for first on the Terriers in points, second in assists and PIM, tied for second in PPG (4), third in goals and shots on goal (127), and was named a Hockey East Third-Team All-Star.

He also collected a goal in five games with Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

In three seasons with Boston University (2015-18), Greenway totaled 92 points (28-64=92) and 192 PIM in 112 games.

Greenway was originally selected by Minnesota in the second round (50th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft.
