Jason Zucker has agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Minnesota Wild.
Zucker had 22 goals and 46 points in 38 contests with the University of Denver this season. He is projected to play in his first NHL contest on Thursday. "In college, he was a first-line player who scored goals," Wild GM Chuck Fletcher said. "I hope there's elements of both of that in his game, but time will tell. He can shoot the puck, he skates well and he's got a strong work ethic. But right now he's a 20-year-old prospect who's got a lot to learn."
