The Minnesota Wild signed goaltender Devan Dubnyk to a six-year, $26 million contract on Saturday, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Dubnyk earned a long-term contract from the Wild after have a 27-9-2 record with a 1.78 goals-against average in 39 games after being acquired from the Arizona Coyotes in January, making him a finalist for the Vezina Trophy.
General manager Chuck Fletcher told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that he felt the deal was beneficial for both parties.
“I think it’s a fair contract for what he’s done,” Fletcher said. “I think the cap number will work well for us, and in turn, I think the term is what he was hoping to get. Those are the compromises you make. At the end of the contract, he’ll be 34 years old. I think that’s an age where goaltenders can still be successful in this league.”
Dubnyk ultimately finished third in voting for the Vezina Trophy this season.
