The Minnesota Wild have officially announced the signing of Devan Dubnyk to a six-year/$26 million contract.
Dubnyk was sensational for the Wild after being traded from the Coyotes on January 14 as he went 27-9-2 with a 1.78 GAA and a .936 save percentage. He went from a backup goalie in Arizona to being a finalist for the Vezina Trophy. "The most exciting thing for me is knowing I get to be part of a really good hockey team for a long time," Dubnyk told the Star Tribune on June 27. "Getting a chance to play with that group of guys last year was the best experience for me. I'm real excited." Jul 4 - 5:49 PM

Devan Dubynk and the Wild have agreed on a 6-year, $26 million contract, making him the 21st highest paid goalie in the NHL.

Well this is fantastic news for Dubynk, the Wild and anyone who owns Dubnyk in fantasy pools. As was rumored on Friday both sides wanted to get this deal done and it did. Dubnyk is coming off a dream season in which he posted a 27-9-2 record, a .936 save percentage and a 1.78 goals against average which led to a Vezina Trophy nomination. We can't imagine he can match those numbers this upcoming season, or even come close for that matter, but Dubnyk finally seems to have arrived. He will be a solid top-10 goalie in 2015-16 with a reasonable cap hit of $4.33 million.

Minnesota Wild GM Cliff Fletcher says that he hopes to have UFA goaltender Devan Dubnyk re-signed "by tomorrow."

This is certainly excellent news for both parties, however we're still left wondering what the contract might look like. Minnesota has about $12.2M in cap space with 14 skaters plus goalies Nikas Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper. The two netminders each have a year left on their respective deals and combine for about $4.6M in cap hits. Backstrom however is expected to either be dealt or bought out this summer.

It appears that the contract talks between UFA goaltender Devan Dubnyk and the Minnesota Wild are "going fine."

Dubnyk is coming off a Vezina Trophy nomination, a second team All-Star nomination, and winning the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy after leading the Wild to an incredible playoff push last season. Dubnyk is also coming off a one-year, $800K contract, which proceeded a two-year $7M contract. It would seem the 29-year-old netminder wants some security, the only question is how much.

Devan Dubnyk had a quality night at the NHL Awards.

He walked away with the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, finished third in Vezina Trophy voting and ended up fourth for the Hart Trophy. He was also named to the second All-Star team. Dubnyk, who is a pending unrestricted free agent, is free to speak with other teams now, but talks are continuing with the Wild.

Devan Dubnyk took home the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy on Wednesday night.

The award is given to the player who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey." Dubnyk's story is well documented by now but just in case you need a reminder, while with Minnesota after coming over from Arizona in a January trade, Dubnyk went 27-9-2 with a .936 save percentage, a 1.78 GAA, with five shutouts and 28 Quality Starts to lead the Wild to the playoffs for the third straight season.

Devan Dubnyk is hoping to re-sign with the Wild before free agency opens next week.

"Nothing's really changed between us," Dubnyk said. "I want to be there. [Fletcher] wants me to be there, and we’re going to work as hard as we can to get something done. ... There's no hard feelings or anything." His agent is expected to work with GM Chuck Fletcher at the draft this weekend. Minnesota has about $12.8 million in cap space with Dubnyk, Mikael Granlund, Erik Haula and Christian Folin to sign.

Devan Dubnyk suggested the roadblock with the Wild has been cap related rather than term.

So it sounds like Minnesota might be having some difficulty addressing Dubnyk's salary demands. There's still reason to believe the two sides will work something out, but it will be interesting to see if the Wild shed salary between now and the draft to set the stage for the Dubnyk signing.

Chuck Fletcher and Devan Dubnyk's agent, Mike Liut, will talk about a possible contract for goalie Devan Dubnyk in Florida this week.

"Mike’s not going to be in Vegas. So if Mike’s going to be in Florida, my sense is I should get to Florida," Fletcher said. "We need to resolve our goaltending situation. We haven’t made any secret of the fact that we would like Devan to be the guy who comes back." The acquisition of Dubnyk was huge for the Wild, as it gave them the consistency they were looking for in goal.
Jun 21 - 11:17 AM

GM Chuck Fletcher and agent Mike Liut haven't had much contact since their meeting at the combine and the clock is ticking on getting Devan Dubnyk signed.

Dubnyk will be in Las Vegas next week as part of the NHL Awards Show and could have a face-to-face meeting with Fletcher at that time. The pending unrestricted free agent is believed to be seeking north of $5 million on a long-term deal. The Wild would like to keep him in the fold and buying out Matt Cooke will save some cap space, but it's unclear if Dubnyk will price himself out of their range.

It may be tough for the Wild to meet the contract demands of pending unrestricted free agent Devan Dubnyk, but GM Chuck Fletcher is hopeful that something can be worked out.

"That's the goal on both sides, we've started the process," Fletcher told Wednesday. "I'm certainly hopeful, but it takes a little bit of time to get everything in place, there's a lot of moving pieces. But the dialogue has been good, we'll see what transpires." Minnesota doesn't have much room on the cap, but obviously they would prefer to keep Dubnyk in the fold and find a way to part with Niklas Backstrom, who can't be bought out unless he gets a clean bill of health following elbow surgery.
Jun 10 - 6:17 PM

Devan Dubnyk is reportedly seeking significant money on a long-term contract.

He has started preliminary talks with the Minnesota Wild, but there are some question marks regarding Minnesota's willingness to commit those kind of resources to keep him in the fold. The club should get a clearer picture of what Dubnyk is after soon and GM Chuck Fletcher is expected to keep his options open by looking around the league at trade options.
Jun 8 - 3:21 PM

Wild GM Chuck Fletcher and agent Mike Liut will talk about a new contract for Devan Dubnyk at the NHL Draft Combine.

The two sides will begin their contract discussions. Dubnyk can become an unrestricted free agent in July, but the Wild would obviously prefer to keep him in the fold. He turned Minnesota's season around after he was acquired from Arizona.
Jun 1 - 3:49 PM

Devan Dubnyk and the Wild will discuss a contract extension this week, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

The Wild acquired Dubnyk in January, and all he did was post some of the best numbers in the NHL: 27-9-2 record, a 1.78 goals-against average and .936 save percentage. "The Minnesota Wild and Dubnyk will sit down with his agent this week to talk to see if they can work out a contract with the goalie who had a great second half of the year," Friedman said during Hockey Night in Canada. Dubnyk made $800,000 this past season.

Devan Dubnyk topped Sportsnet's list of pending 2015 unrestricted free agents.

That's not surprising after the season Dubnyk had, but it still highlights how far he's come in just a year. When he was a free agent last year the question was if he would even get an NHL contract. After posting a 2.07 GAA and .929 save percentage in 58 contests with Arizona and Minnesota, there should be no shortage of teams interested in his services, if the Wild don't sign him first. Dubnyk will be a bit of a gamble though given that he's likely to get a decent term but still isn't far removed from his disastrous 2013-14 campaign.
