Scheduled Tribes Paul, Mr. – Minnesota Wild on Wednesday signed a two-year, 1.6 million deal with left-wing Connor Dewar.
Dewar made his NHL debut on October 28 and played 35 games in the fourth row with two goals, four assists and 48 hits. The Canadian forward stopped five shots in Winnipeg on February 8 and set a franchise single-game record. He appeared in a playoff game.
The 23-year-old brother, who was selected by Wild in the third round in 2018, had a unilateral contract. He played 19 games in the AHL for Iowa last season, including eight goals and nine assists.
Wilde, who signed forward Zac Paris and defender Ryan Sutter last season, will have to deal with pay-cap issues this off-season, and adding Dev to a full-time role could be a tempting move. Which saves some offensive room for General Manager Bill Guerin.
