Minnesota Wild News


The Wild have re-signed Nick Seeler to a three-year deal worth $2.175M ($725K AAV).

Seeler was a fifth-round pick (No.131 overall) in 2011 and made it to the NHL last season. After three years in the NCAA and a year and a half in the AHL, Seeler picked up four assists in 22 games with the Wild last year. The 25-year-old is expected to be on the Wild’s third pairing to start the 2019 season.

The Wild re-signed Kyle Rau to a two-year, two-way contract worth $1.4M ($700K AAV).

Rau had just one assist in three games with the Wild last season. He spent most of the year in the AHL, where he had 50 points (23G / 27A) in 69 games. Rau will push for a roster spot in training camp but will have a tough time cracking one of the deepest rosters in the NHL.

The Wild re-signed Ryan Murphy to a one-year, two-way contract worth $650K.

The former No.12 overall pick has never been able to find his game at the NHL-level and often splits his season between the AHL and NHL. This past season, Murphy had 28 points (4G / 24A) in 48 games with Iowa and five points (2G / 3A) in 21 games with Minnesota. He will likely serve as the Wild’ No.7 defenseman throughout the 2019 season.

Spurgeon (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Game 1.

Spurgeon has been sidelined since March 13th with a hamstring tear, but it looks like he will be ready to go for Game 1 in Winnipeg. Spuregon skated next to Carson Soucy on the second pairing and it looks like he’ll play despite maybe not being 100 percent. Spurgeon’s return is huge with Ryan Suter (ankle) on the shelf and comes in with 37 points (9G / 28A) in 61 games this season.

The Wild recalled Carson Soucy from Iowa (AHL).

Soucy spent the majority of the 2017-18 season in the AHL, where he amassed 15 points (1G / 14A) in 67 games, but he also appeared in three games with Minnesota. With Ryan Suter definitely out to start the playoffs and Jared Spurgeon a big question mark, Soucy has been recalled and is expected to open the playoffs on the Wild’s second pairings.
