Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is over. Matt Duma and the Wild have agreed to a 5 year, 30 million dollar (6 million AAV) extension. Nothing better than a 3am EST notification from Elliotte Friedman saying the Wild and Dumba have agreed to this deal. Also, with it being 3am, not a lot of information has been released by the Wild about this extension so make sure to stick with Hockey Wilderness all day for news and reaction from the organization. With this deal settled, the Wild still have to sign Jason Zucker who also filed for salary arbitration. His hearing is set for July 28th.
I posted an article about a month ago on Dumba, and why he deserves the contract he has been offered. Check it out here.
