What Jonas Brodin’s contract extension means for Matt Dumba

After arguably his best season as a pro, Jonas Brodin has officially agreed to remain with the Minnesota Wild for seven more years.

This should go down as a solid move for Wild general manager Bill Guerin and company. Brodin, 27, set new career highs in points (28) and assists (26) during the pandemic-shortened 2019-20 regular season. And while the Wild may have slightly overpaid to retain Brodin’s services, he’s an excellent second-pair defender capable of shutting down opposing teams’ top offensive weapons.

With Brodin locked up for the long haul, though, Matt Dumba’s future with the Wild is now a far more complicated issue.
