Top College Prospect Signs NHL Contract Following National Championship Loss

One of the University of Minnesota’s top players has finally committed to making the jump to the NHL, less than 24 hours after the team suffered a heartbreaking overtime loss. With Logan Cooley, Brock Faber, and Matthew Knies all eligible for NHL contracts, it was only a matter of time before one of them chose to sign one.

Brock Faber decided to sign a three-year entry-level contract with the Minnesota Wild today shortly after 11 a.m.
The contract begins this season, and Faber could see action with the Wild as early as this week.

The LA Kings selected Faber 45th overall in the 2020 draft. Faber was a key component in the deal that enabled the Los Angeles Kings to acquire Kevin Fiala during the offseason.

Congratulations, Brock!

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!
