The Minnesota Wild  have announced a six-year extension with defenseman Jonas Brodin. The deal is worth $25 million, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet. 

Brodin, the Wild's first-round draft pick out of Sweden in 2011, is in his third season with the team. When he joined Minnesota as a 19-year-old, he was the youngest defenseman in the NHL and led all rookies in average ice time (23 minutes, 12 seconds) in 2013.
