  • Minnesota Wild Sign Mikael Granlund


    Ladies and gentlemen... we got him.

    Via Russo on Twitter:

    Other hyperbolic statements here!

    The Wild, of course, avoid losing their top prospect back into the draft, or being forced to trade his rights for far less than market value. On the flip side, the hype machine has built the kid up so high that any small stumble is going to have fans in meltdown mode.

    For now, he's in the fold. Now comes that little word that HWSRN was afraid to accept. Development.

    Party on, Wild fans. They got him.

    UPDATE 1:28 PM: Granlund's agent, Todd Diamond, said "Coming over may be a relief for him [Granlund]. He can be like Lennon or McCartney over there. He was the most Googled athlete in Finland the last two years."

    Also, Granlund will, indeed, wear #64. The Wild's Twitter account says Granlund sweaters will be available Friday at all three Hockey Lodge locations. Post your pictures when you get yours.

    UDPATE 2:56 PM: Missed this in the original press release, but the first 64 fans to purchase new Wild season tickets will get a signed #64 sweater.
