The Minnesota Wild announced on Sunday a six-year extension with defenseman Jonas Brodin for a reported $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.
He has 10 goals and 21 assists in 126 career games.
Brodin's contract is 6 yrs, $25M. He is a good player, that's a good deal for both.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) October 12, 2014
