The Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche re-upped with their East Coast affiliates on Monday — the Wild announced they’re sticking with the Quad City Mallards while the Avs revealed they’re staying with the Fort Wayne Komets.

“We’re excited to announce this new agreement and continue our partnership with the Mallards,” said Wild Assistant General Manager Brent Flahr in a release. “Quad City offers a great organization that will provide our players an excellent opportunity to continue their development.”

“The Komet organization is honored and very excited about our new two-year affiliation with the Colorado Avalanche,” Fort Wayne general manager David Franke said in a statement. “We had a very good agreement with them last year and they were at the top of our list this summer to continue the relationship.”

The Wild didn’t announce how long their extension with Quad City was; the Avs revealed their extension with the Komets runs through 2017.
