Joel Eriksson Ek’s coming-of-age season takes another step in Wilds OT win over Golden Knights – The Athletic

Wild general manager Bill Guerin was asked just how much
Joel Eriksson Ek’s coming of age has caused a remodeling of Minnesota’s projected salary-cap structure heading into an offseason where big-ticket players
Kirill Kaprizov and
Kevin Fiala must be re-signed.

After all, Eriksson Ek’s also a pending restricted free agent, and his transformation from one of the game’s top shutdown centermen to one of the game’s top two-way centers means he, too, is going to earn, let’s just say, an Ekuva lot more than the Wild ever could have forecasted for a player whose career-high in goals before this season was a whopping … eight.
