Minnesota Wild announce new contract signing

It's official.



With the National Hockey League Trade Deadline quickly approaching, eyes are turning towards Minnesota Wild general manager Bill Guerin as to what he'll do. 

And while it was revealed earlier today that veteran goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury is apparently not going anywhere, Guerin has negotiated a new contract for 2020 draft selection Marat Khusnutdinov. However, he'll need to secure a work visa along with complete a visit to a consulate before being legally allowed to travel and work in the United States. 

He was taken 37th overall in the 2nd round of the 2020 NHL Draft, and was traded in the KHL from SKA St. Petersburg to HK Sochi, where he was named team captain and has scored six goals and 14 assists in 49 games played.
