Minnesota Wild Sign Two College Players
The Minnesota Wild signed two collegiate players since the season has concluded. The two players are Chay Genoway and Justin Fontaine. Genoway was the captain of the North Dakota Fighting Sioux and plays defense. Although short in stature, Genoway was a force on the blueline for the Sioux and was one of the best defenseman in the WCHA the last few years. Fontaine was a winger for the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs, who won their first National Championship this past season. He was a big scorer for the Bulldogs and knew how to bury the puck. Hopefully both of these guys can prove their worth for the Houston Aeros and make their way to the NHL team down the road.
