The Minnesota Wild have officially bought out Thomas Vanek's contract.
We're just passing this on as a matter of course as the Wild's intent was already confirmed earlier in the day. As previously noted, this move frees up $5 million in cap space for Minnesota for the 2016-17 campaign, but now they'll have a $2.5 million cap penalty in 2017-18. "In order to give our team more salary cap flexibility we needed to make this difficult decision," said Wild GM Chuck Fletcher. "We thank Thomas for his time with the Minnesota Wild and wish him the best going forward." Jun 24 - 5:47 PM
