Young Wild star Matthew Boldy breaks the bank and it will directly affect Cole Caufield

The Minnesota Wild have announced that they have reached an agreement with their young star forward Matthew Boldy on a monster contract extension of $ 49 million over a seven-year period.

The latter will therefore earn $7.0 million per season until the 2029-2030 season.


This contract will have a direct impact on the next contract extension of Cole Caufield, since Boldy was also a first-round choice in 2019, the 12th selection in total, just ahead of number 22 of the CH.


In 89 professional games so far in his career, the latter has compiled a record of 27 goals and 68 points, for an average point per game of 0.76. For his part, Caufield has scored 53 goals and had 84 points in 121 games.

He therefore maintains a point per game average of 0.69. So there is now a very big comparable for Kent Hughes on the table to negotiate the next long-term deal for the young Canadiens star.
