Here’s an updated look at the Wild’s depth chart after today’s signings, including defenseman Kyle Quincey (pictured below). No doubt the Wild still needs another NHL forward/center.

The main article on today's seven signings and what's next will be on startribune.com/wild this evening.

In parentheses, each player’s salary cap hits. Restricted free agents are denoted as RFA.

Rosters are a maximum 23 players. Typically, the Wild keeps 13 or 14 forwards, seven or eight defensemen and two goalies.

Depth chart is my opinion.
