Minnesota hopes to sign restricted free agent Mikael Granlund soon to avoid going to arbitration.

Granlund's arbitration hearing is slated for August 4. The Wild would like to sign him and fellow RFA Nino Niederreiter to three- to five-year contracts. It's believed that Granlund would like to receive a long-term deal worth more than $6 million annually, but he'll probably have to come down from that number. There hasn't been a case to go to an arbitrator yet in the NHL and a contract could be worked out for Granlund as his hearing gets closer.
