Well folks, it’s happened! The Minnesota Wild have done us a solid and spared us having to go through a whole season reading into the mystery surrounding Jared Spurgeon’s contract extension. Will he stay? Does he want out? Will they move him at the deadline to try and extract some kind of value?
The answer, it seems, is that he wanted to stay, and the team wanted him to stay, so he’s staying. The Wild announced today that they have signed Spurgeon to a seven-year contract extension worth $53.025 million (that’s an AAV of $7,575,000).
