    Cold Omaha Wire

    The Minnesota Wild announced today that they have signed restricted free agent Gustav Olofsson to a two-year, $1.45 million contract ($675,000 in 2017-18 and $775,000 in 2018-19 for a $725,000 average annual value).


    Olofsson, 22, totaled three assists and two penalty minutes in 13 games with Minnesota in 2016-17, adding 24 points and 32 PIM in 59 games with Iowa of the American Hockey League (AHL) -- leading Iowa defensemen in goals, power-play goals (three) and ranking second in scoring.


    The 6-foot-3, 195-pound defenseman appeared in two games with Minnesota in 2015-16, including his NHL debut on Nov. 19, 2015 at Boston.


    The left-shot defenseman was originally selected by Minnesota in the second round (46th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
