The Wild re-signed Justin Fontaine today to a two year contract. For more infOon the deal, here is the always-outstanding Michael Russo from the Star Tribune:
The deal is expected to be worth $1 million annually ($950,000 in Year 1 and $1.05 million in Year 2). Fontaine, the former University of Minnesota Duluth national champion, tied for fourth on the Wild and tied for 12th among NHL rookies last season with 13 goals. That goal total was third-highest ever by a Wild rookie. He had 21 points in 66 games and his plus-6 was tied for second all-time by a Wild rookie.
I personally like the signing. Now if we can also sign Nino this off-season, that would be great! But it sounds life, if you read the article by Russo I linked to, that is likely happening. Fingers crossed!
