Minnesota Wild and Kevin Fiala settle on a 1-year, $5.1M contract

The Minnesota Wild and Kevin Fiala have settled on a one-year contract worth $5.1 million, reports Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.


Fiala had filed for arbitration. He was seeking $6.25 million while the team came in at $4 million, according to Friedman. Fiala will again be an arbitration-eligible restricted free agent at the conclusion of the contract, per CapFriendly.

The 25-year-old recorded 20 goals and 20 assists in 50 games this past season. He had a career-best campaign during 2019-20, scoring 23 goals and adding 31 assists in 64 contests.

Minnesota acquired Fiala from the Nashville Predators at the 2019 trade deadline. The former 2014 11th overall pick has appeared in 337 career games while scoring 91 goals and adding 107 assists.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
