Matt Dumba Agrees To A Five-Year Deal With The Minnesota Wild

from Michael Russo of The Athletic,

As​ Sportsnet’s​ Elliotte​ Friedman​ reported​​ in the wee hours of the morning and The Athletic confirmed soon after, the Wild and Dumba will avoid a Monday arbitration date by agreeing to terms on a five-year, $30 million contract. The contract carries a $6 million cap hit and will make the 23-year-old defenseman the Wild’s third-highest paid player next season behind only Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. That would be dependent on restricted free agent Jason Zucker coming in at a lower price following his career-high 33 goals last season.

Last season, Dumba set career-highs in games played (82), goals (14), assists (36), points (50), game-winning goals (four), power-play assists (10), time on ice per game (23:48), shots (176), hits (136) and blocked shots (112).
