Wild reportedly a frontrunner to sign Ben Meyers

The Minnesota Wild are looking to add more options down the middle and one route they are heavily researching is getting the top college free agent available, who just so happens to be from here.

According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, who appeared on The Athletic’s “Straight from the Source” podcast, the Wild are one of just two frontrunners to get the signature of University of Minnesota captain Ben Meyers. The other team is the Detroit Red Wings, which is just so predictable; and he also names the Philadelphia Flyers as a team that is very interested but not considered in the conversation.
