Minnesota wild Sign 1st Round Pick Brodin
Tuesday was Jonas Brodin's 18th birthday. Want a birthday present? I'm not giving you one after you signed that contract with the Wild worth about 2.75 million dollars.
Brodin signed with the Wild Tuesday and the team says they plan on having him for the 2012-2013 season. They said he will stay in Sweden and play for a season and then come over to the United States and try to make the team.
This guy seriously needs to get bigger and is not ready for the NHL. He barely played for his European team, as he saw action in only 42 games and made only four assists with no goals. He also was below 170 pounds. That is inexcusable he is going to get pushed around in the NHL. Hopefully this year in Europe will really help him and he will come to the Wild ready to contribute after this season.
