Wild celebrations for Swiss ace Nino
The Minnesota Wild have agreed to terms with right wing Nino Niederreiter on a five-year, $26.25 million contract.
The Wild announced the deal on Sunday with the restricted free agent, who established career highs last season with 25 goals, 32 assists and a plus-17 rating among several other categories. The 24-year-old Swiss was one of four players to appear in every game for the Wild last season.
Niederreiter will make $4.6 million this season. The annual average value of the contract is $5.25 million for salary-cap purposes.
