The Minnesota Wild recently announced the signing of Frederick Gaudreau to a five-year, $10.5 million contract that covers the 2027-28 NHL season. The Wild General Manager, Bill Guerin made the announcement and expressed his satisfaction with the depth and skills of the forward.
Since joining the Wild this season, Gaudreau has proven to be a valuable asset to the team. He has recorded 36 points, including 17 goals, in 81 games while ranking first in the team for shorthanded goals. He is also among the league’s top scorers and has recorded several multi-point games and set a franchise record with two shorthanded goals on March 29 at Colorado.
Gaudreau has played for six NHL seasons with teams such as Nashville, Pittsburgh, and Minnesota since 2016. He has set his career highs in several statistical categories and has an impressive plus-33 rating in 260 career games. The forward’s agility, flexibility, and leadership make him an invaluable addition to the team.
The Minnesota Wild has experienced tremendous support from the Season Ticket Member Community and wild.com/stayconnected, and this has led to the limited availability of tickets for the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoff games at Xcel Energy Center. Becoming part of the Season Ticket Member Community is still the best chance at securing playoff tickets for the next season.
The signing of Frederick Gaudreau to a five-year contract reflects the team’s commitment to continuously improve and maintain a talented and competitive roster for the next several years.
