The Minnesota Wild started the season with a rocky start but rebounded. They now find themselves third in the Central Division with a 24-14-4 record and 52 points. They only trail the Dallas Stars and Winnipeg Jets for the top two spots.
While they are riding high on pace for another playoff run, the Wild announced some further good news today. They have officially extended forward Matt Boldy for seven years at $7 million annually. Boldy was set to become an RFA this summer, and general manager Bill Guerin was taking no chances by letting it get that far.
The 21-year-old is the future of the Minnesota Wild alongside Kirill Kaprizov. He was drafted by the team 12th overall in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. Boldy is coming off a solid rookie season that saw him score 15 goals and tally 24 assists in just 47 games. The big body 6’2″ and 200-pound winger is enjoying another solid season as he has 12 goals and 17 assists for 29 points in just his second season in the NHL.
The Milford, Massachusetts native and Boston College alum is just scratching the surface of his talent. Boldy will be a future 30-goal scorer for the Wild and help them stay in playoff contention for years to come.
