Wild Ryan Donato agree to 2-year deal after solid run to end season

Forward Ryan Donato inked a two-year, $3.8 million deal, while forward Nico Sturm and defenseman Carson Soucy agreed to one-year, two-way contracts.

Sturm's contract will pay him $874,125 ($70,000 AHL) for the 2019-20 season, and Soucy will earn $750,000 ($125,000 AHL). He had 16 points (4 goals, 12 assists) in 22 games with the Wild last season.

The 23-year-old led National Hockey League rookies in scoring from Feb.21 and ranked tied for second in shots per game (2.5) and seventh in shots on goal (139) for 2018-19.

Earlier in the season, he led Clarkson University in scoring with 45 points in 39 games.

The Boston native played in 46 games through two years with the Bruins, racking up 18 points (11 goals, seven assists) along the way. Overall, Soucy's appeared in three games with the Wild.

Donato came to Minnesota with a fifth-round pick in a deal before the deadline that sent Charlie Coyle to the Bruins.

The signings were announced Tuesday by the Wild, who have four remaining restricted free agents including center Joel Eriksson Ek and left wing Kevin Fiala.
