The Minnesota Wild agreed to terms on a five-year, $30 million contract with restricted free-agent defenseman Matt Dumba.

Dumba, 23, tallied 50 points (14 goals, 36 assists) and a plus-15 rating in 82 games with Minnesota in 2017-18. He set career highs in games played, goals, assists, points, game-winning goals (4), time on ice per game (23:48), shots on goal (176), hits (136) and blocked shots (112). His point total was the third-best amongst team defensemen all-time.
