The Wild has re-signed restricted free agent and No. 1 center Mikael Granlund to a two-year, $6 million "bridge deal" this morning. They beat the 11 a.m. free agency deadline that theoretically would have put him at risk for an offer sheet.
He will make $2.8 million in 2015-16, $3.2 million in 2016-17.
The Wild also re-signed defenseman Nate Prosser to a two-year deal. It's worth $600K Year One, $650K Year 2. One-way deal. This could affect any Jordan Leopold return.
Forward Ryan Carter will also return. He got a one year, $625,000 contract.
The Wild has signed Marc Hagel, who finished the year with the Iowa Wild. The depth forward is on a two-way, NHL deal now. The Wild also signed Ruslan Fedotenko to a two-way deal. He signed an AHL deal with Iowa late last season (he lives in Iowa) and promptly was concussed. Fedotenko has skill, is a vet and won a Cup with Tampa Bay.
The Mike Reilly deal with potential performance bonus makes his cap hit $2.025 million. He will wear No. 4.
