Minnesota Wild Sign Draftee Matt Dumba

The Minnesota Wild have announced that the team has agreed to terms with Matt Dumba for a three-year contract. Dumba was the team's first-round draft pick at No. 7 overall in the 2012 NHL Draft. It's worth $2.75 million if he plays in the NHL with the Wild, with an annual cap hit of $1.633 million with potential bonuses, according to the Star Tribune.

The press release from the Wild is also linked in the piece, though it's short and sweet. It notes that Dumba just wrapped up his participation in the Wild's Development Camp. If Dumba doesn't make the roster in training camp, he'll play for Red Deer in the Western Hockey League, where he has already played 69 games, posting 57 points and 67 penalty minutes.

Immediately following the draft, SB Nation gave the Wild a B+ for their haul, noting that Dumba could be one of the better defensemen out of the draft class. They also gave high marks for the fact that the Wild were sticking to their guns and didn't reach for someone after the run of defensemen.
