Torrey Mitchell, Konopka Are Key Additions For Minnesota Wild

The big free agent signings of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter caught all of the headlines, and will continue to do so, but the huge 13-year contracts handed out to the two premier free agents in this year’s class were not the only important moves that Minnesota GM Chuck Fletcher made this season. He also made a trio of signings for his bottom six forward group bringing in Torrey Mitchell on a three-year deal, while signing Zenon Konopka and Jake Dowell to two-year deals.
