Minnesota Wild sign Niklas Backstrom to 4 year deal

Just got a text message from my ESPN updates that the Wild have signed Backstrom to a four year deal worth $24 million.

More on this very soon...

The Minnesota Wild have signed star goalie Niklas Backstrom to a $24 million, four-year contract, a source told ESPN.com on Tuesday.

He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, and he had been the subject of numerous trade rumors.

Backstrom, one of the underrated goalies in the league, is 28-18-4, and tied for fourth in the league in wins and goals-against average.
