The Minnesota Wild signed defenseman Jonas Brodin to a seven-year, $42-million contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

The 27-year-old set a career high in points after tallying two goals and 26 assists during the 2019-20 season. He led the Wild in blocked shots (112) while averaging 21:33 minutes of ice time per game.

Brodin has been with the Wild since being selected 10th overall in the 2011 NHL Draft. He's racked up 30 goals, 116 assists, and 890 blocked shots in 555 career games.

Brodin's extension will begin in 2021-22 and run through 2027-28. The Wild will now have $27.1 million tied up to their current top four defensemen - Ryan Suter, Jared Spurgeon, Matt Dumba, and Brodin - as of 2021.
