First report I am aware of came from RDS, so I'll give them credit, but it has also been confirmed by Russo. Guillaume Latendresse has signed a two year deal, averaging to $2.5 million per season for two seasons.
From Russo on Twitter:
#mnwild Guillaume Latendresse, who scored a career-high 27 goals last season, agrees to terms on 2-yr, $5 million deal, says Fletcher
Latendresse gets 2.4, 2.6
This is a fantastic deal for both sides, especially if Latendresse continues to produce at the level he did to finish the season. It is a cap friendly contract headed into tomorrow's spending spree, and it gives Fletcher a very clear picture about where he he is at for payroll space. It is good for BTE as well, since if he continues to tear it up, in two years he can cash in.
A win-win, folks. How many times has THAT happened in Wild history?
