A person with direct knowledge of discussions tells The Associated Press the Wild agreed to a $700,000 contract with the 37-year-old Hendricks. A second person with direct knowledge of talks says the Wild have also agreed to a deal with Fehr.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the contracts cannot be signed until the free agent signing period opens later Sunday.
Hendricks gets a raise from the $650,000 he was making with the Winnipeg Jets. He had 13 points in 60 games last season in largely a fourth-line role. The 32-year-old Fehr finished last season with San Jose and had four points in 14 regular-season games.
The Wild also announced agreements with former Dallas defenseman Greg Pateryn (three years, $6.75 million), restricted free agent defenseman Nick Seeler (three years, $2.175 million) and forward J.T. Brown (two years, $1.375 million).
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Pateryn had 12 assists in 73 games for Dallas last season, also setting career highs in ice time, shots on goal, blocked shots and hits. The 28-year-old is a right-handed shot and a solid penalty-killer who played previously for Montreal. Pateryn will likely playing alongside Seeler, who had four assists and a plus-10 rating in 22 games last season in a productive NHL debut with the Wild. He played in all five playoff games, too.
Brown could skate next to a Fehr-anchored fourth line. The son of former Minnesota Vikings running back Ted Brown and a 2011 NCAA champion with Minnesota Duluth, Brown split last season with Tampa Bay and Anaheim. He has 20 goals and 44 assists in 309 career games.
Brown (Rosemount), Hendricks (Blaine) and Seeler (Eden Prairie) are all Minnesota natives.
