Thomas Vanek admitted that returning to Minnesota was one of his main motivations for wanting to test the free agent market.
Vanek had to compromise to sign with the Wild though as they would only ink him to a three-year deal. He hadn't previously played for the Wild, but he did go to the University of Minnesota where he was a star with the Golden Gophers. This signing also reunites him with his former Sabres linemate, Jason Pominville. Jul 2 - 10:30 AM
