Mikael Granlund to (finally!) play with the Wild next season

Time to stop holding our breaths, Mikael Granlund will finally be signing with the Minnesota Wild sometime this month. He fulfilled his obligations in Finland, the last being the world championship that ended Sunday, and will be signing soon.

It's been a long two years since Granlund was chosen in the 2010 NHL draft, but it will hopefully be well worth the wait. The Wild has apparently signed him to a three year, $2.7 million contract and Wild fans will finally get to cheer for him next season. He, along with the drafts next month, should be turning around the whole team and I will definitely be watching out for it!
