Dubnyk is sealed at 6 years for 26 million dollars

Devan Dubnyk definitely capitalized on what was a great second half of the last season. Today Devan Dubnyk resigned with the Minnesota Wild to a contract worth 26 million dollars and six more years. Dubnyk was a finalist for the Vezina trophy this season registering a 27-9-2 record after he was acquired by the Wild from the Arizona Coyotes.

Dubnyk’s season was outstanding with a goal against average of 1.78 and a save percentage of .936 with 5 shutouts. In the 2014-2015 playoff, Dubnyk posted a 4-6 record and a .908 save percentage and one shutout.  With the Coyotes, Dubnyk compiled a 9-5-2 record with .916 save percentage and a 2.72 GAA with the Coyotes before being traded for a third-round pick in January.

Dubnyk, 29, has had quite the journey since leaving the Oilers a year and a half ago. He was traded to the Nashville Predators by the Oilers mid season of the 2013-2014 and then traded again to the Montreal Canadiens where he never played and then went on to sign as a free agent to Arizona Coyotes prior to the 2014-2015 season. Dubnyk was drafted by the Oilers 14th overall at the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Career-wise, Dubnyk’s numbers are 97-91-26 with a GAA of 2.69 and a save percentage of .914.
