Cap-strapped Wild sign Marcus Johansson to 2-year, $4M deal

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Wild signed right wing Marcus Johansson to a two-year, $4 million contract on Tuesday, securing a key player who was set to become an unrestricted free agent.

Johansson's salary cap hit of $2 million for the next two seasons will give general manager Bill Guerin some valuable certainty in a time of little flexibility because of the dead money the Wild are carrying for the 2021 buyouts of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.

"I think our players and our coaches deserve a lot of credit, because they're fighting with one hand tied behind their back because of these cap restraints," Guerin said.
