Minnesota Wild Sign Casey Wellman: GM Chuck Fletcher’s Rennovation Continues

March 16th, 2010 by Blake Benzel Leave a reply »

When a season is as rocky as the Minnesota Wild’s, you take any victory you can get.


University of Massachusetts forward Casey Wellman is on his way to Minnesota today to sign a free agent, entry level contract with the Minnesota Wild.


Wellman, one of the most sought after collegiate level free agents, was pursued by 21 other teams but chose Minnesota in the end—a victory, to be sure.


The 22-year-old Wellman is tied for sixth in the nation in goals with 23 for UMass this season. According to Mike Russo of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, he will not be going to the team’s AHL affiliate Houston Aeros, making it increasingly likely that he could play in Tuesday night’s game against the Edmonton Oilers.
