Wild re-sign Fiala to 2-year, $6M contract

Wild re-sign Fiala to 2-year, $6M contract The Minnesota Wild re-signed restricted free-agent forward Kevin Fiala to a two-year, $6-million contract, the team announced Wednesday. Fiala was acquired in a deadline deal with the Nashville Predators in exchange for Mikael Granlund. The trade was made by ex-Wild general manager Paul Fenton, who had previously been the assistant GM in Nashville. In 83 games split between the two clubs, Fiala registered 12 goals and 39 points in 2018-19. This marked a bit of a down year compared to his 23-goal, 48-point output in 2017-18. The 23-year-old will compete for top-six minutes in his first full campaign with the Wild. Copyright © 2019 Score Media Ventures Inc.

It’s so obvious that Wild winger Kevin Fiala , at the ripe age of 22, boasts a skill set most common folk can only dream of. Fittingly, that starts with a crucial game against the Predators on Monday night at the Xcel Energy Center. That will give Fiala another chance to prove himself against his former team .

Minnesota Wild general manager Bill Guerin says the team has done its part and is now playing the waiting game with restricted free-agent forward Kevin Fiala.

"We've made him a fair offer and he's deciding," Guerin told The Athletic's Michael Russo on Tuesday. "I understand the position he's in. I've been in it a couple times myself. We want to get him in as quick as possible because if you miss training camp, the chances of you having a good year aren't very good. We want to get him in here and get him going."

Fiala collected seven points in 19 games with the Wild after Minnesota acquired him from the Nashville Predators in exchange for Mikael Granlund ahead of last season's trade deadline.

Covington: UFC unfairly negotiated prior to scrapped title fight vs. Usman

Covington: UFC unfairly negotiated prior to scrapped title fight vs. Usman Colby Covington revealed on Monday that he was ready to fight Kamaru Usman at UFC 244 until the promotion refused to budge from what he says was an unacceptable offer. "I was ready to fight, but the UFC came to me with the basic challenger’s offer," Covington told ESPN's Ariel Helwani. "I'm a champion (but) there was no negotiation. They came and ran at me and said, 'Here, take this or leave it and we'll pass it on to the next person.' That's not fair negotiating and that's not right. So I'm not going to take the first offer that you offer me." Covington (15-1) defeated Robbie Lawler by unanimous decision at UFC Newark in August, which pushed his winning streak to eight straight.

Wild owner Craig Leipold, addressed the media yesterday in regards to how and when the decision was to move in a different direction from Chuck Fletcher. So if this is not a rebuild, then how can the new GM make the necessary tweaks to the roster in order to make this team a Stanley Cup contender?

The Wild open training camp Friday, and Fiala is the team's lone remaining RFA.

"I'm just speaking from experience that you're better off being in camp than not," Guerin said. "For Kevin's sake and our sake, I hope he's there, I really do."

Minnesota has nearly $8 million in cap space, according to CapFriendly.

Fiala, 23, produced 10 goals and 32 points in 64 games before the trade. The winger spent parts of five seasons with the Predators, who drafted him 11th overall in 2014.
