Matt Dumba signed for the MN Wild!

It's a big day, MN Wild fans! This morning we signed defense man Matt Dumba as first round draft pick. He is 17. What?!! Is that even allowed?! Okay, granted, he turns 18 in six days, but still. What a baby! He will be the youngest player under contract with the Wild, and if things don't work out, he can return to his junior team, the Red Deer Rebels. The Wild can see him becoming a puck-moving defenceman, a decent asset to the team!

He honestly looks like my 15 year old brother.
