Minnesota Wild forward Thomas Vanek appeared in a courtroom in Rochester, N.Y. on Monday afternoon to give witness testimony in a federal investigation.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported Monday that Vanek appeared voluntarily, while his agent Steve Bartlett said Vanek is not under any suspicion and has done nothing wrong.

"Representatives of the U.S. Federal Government have asked for my cooperation in an investigation," Vanek wrote in a statement released by Bartlett on Monday. "I am not the subject of any investigation or prosecution. I will fully cooperate with the U.S. Federal authorities in their investigation or in any proceedings arising out of it."

Neither Bartlett nor Vanek mentioned the subject of the investigation, while Bartlett added that the legal proceedings should not lead to any repercussions from the National Hockey League. "He is not going to be charged," Bartlett told the Democrat and Chronicle. "He won't be charged with a crime because he hasn't done anything wrong."

Vanek played last season with the Buffalo Sabres, New York Islanders and Montreal Canadiens, scoring 15 points in 18 regular season games after being acquired by the Habs at the trade deadline.

He also tallied 10 points in 17 games in the playoffs, helping lead the Canadiens to the Eastern Conference Final. Vanek signed a three-year contract with the Wild as an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Files from The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle were used for this report.
