Minnesota Wild

NHL CapHit: $1,487,500 Puckpedia Profile

The Wild have re-signed Joel Eriksson Ek to a two-year contract extension worth $2.975M ($1.45M AAV).

Since being picked No.20 in 2015, Eriksson Ek has not topped 16 points in his first two NHL seasons. However, once Mikko Koivu went down last year, Eriksson Ek had five goals and two assists in 22 games while averaging 15:23 TOI/gm—averaged 12:22 prior. Koivu will likely be eased back into action early in the season, giving Eriksson Ek an opportunity to get off to a hot start in 2020.

Eriksson Ek (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.

Eriksson Ek missed Friday’s practice with “soreness” and is considered a game-time decision for Saturday’s game vs. the Hurricanes. If Eriksson Ek does not play, look for Charlie Coyle to move to centre and for J.T. Brown to play on the right wing of that third line.
