St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Matt Cullen both found new homes, to the Islanders and Predators respectively, on Friday after the Wild decided not to offer either a contract extension.

Bouchard, the 10-year Minnesotan veteran, signed a one-year deal with New York after becoming an unrestricted free agent earlier in the week. Bouchard was originally drafted by the Wild in 2002.

The 36-year-old Cullen inked a two-year deal with Nashville worth $7 million. Cullen spent three seasons with the Wild and scored 33 goals in 193 games with Minnesota.
