Prosser's contract is one year (mandatory because of his age) at $810,000 (prorated to about 97K). His contract expires at the end of the season and he'll have to be re-signed after July 1.
So why sign him if his contract's going to expire anyway? Now the Wild owns his rights to re-sign. The plan is for him to stay with Minnesota the rest of the season -- not Houston. But unless there's a ton of injuries, it's doubtful he'll play. Regardless, he's not eligible to be sent to Houston because of some confusing loophole.
He'll fly to Nashville this morning, attend tonight's game and be on the charter afterward aimed for Columbus.
(updated) The Wild, two days after signing UMass' Casey Wellman, continues to dip into the college free-agent market.
