Minnesota Wild extend Matt Boldy

The Minnesota Wild signed forward Matt Boldy to a seven-year, $49 million contract that goes through the 2029-30 season.

The Wild selected Boldy No. 12 overall in the 2019 draft. He was scheduled to become a restricted free agent after the 2022-23 season.

“I love it here,” Boldy said Monday. “I think from the moment I got here, just the group we have, the guys in the locker room, the management, the coaching, it’s a good place to be. And ever since I’ve been here, I’ve loved it. So it was a pretty easy decision for me.”

Boldy, 21, has 29 points (12 goals, 17 assists) in 42 games this season, his second with the Wild. Boldy has 68 points (27 goals, 41 assists) in 89 games since making his NHL debut in 2021-22.

Boldy scored a goal in his first career NHL game and hasn’t slowed down.

Boldy reached the 50-point mark in his 60th career game and the 25-goal mark in his 74th career game, becoming the second-fastest player to reach either milestone.
