The Minnesota Wild have signed restricted free agent Hunter Warner to a one-year two-way contract. The deal will carry a $700K salary in the NHL. Warner was not eligible for salary arbitration.
Warner, 23, was signed as an undrafted free agent out of the USHL in 2014 where he was a menace on defense. Racking up 125 penalty minutes in just 43 games for the Fargo Force, that physicality has continued through the rest of his junior career and into the minor leagues.
