The Minnesota Wild re-signed forward Kirill Kaprizov to a five-year contract with an average annual value of $9 million, the team announced Tuesday.

Contract negotiations between the two sides were ongoing for the entire offseason, with general manager Bill Guerin saying on Sept. 13 that there were "obstacles" holding up talks. There were also rumors Kaprizov would return to the KHL.

Kaprizov, 24, dominated in his first year in the NHL.
