I don't think we ever posted about this, so if you haven't heard, the Wild finally put ink to paper on a deal with Chad Rau, who will be entering his second pro season.
It's a 2-year deal, two ways both years and, like Daoust, it's his first NHL deal. And he's buying dinner this summer because it includes a nice little signing bonus. I'll have the filet, thanks, Chad!
For my money, he's the last of the "must-haves" from last year's free agents, but I think he's a kid with some decent upside, so a 2 year deal is great as we see if he can turn those 38 points into 50 as his consistency as a pro improves.
Here's a nice little article about his signing from the Wild web site.
