The Minnesota Wild have signed defenseman Matt Dumba to a five-year contract extension worth $30 million. 

The average annual salary of $6 million is now third most on the Wild, trailing only Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, who each signed 13-year, $98 million contracts with the Wild on July 4, 2012. 

Here's a year-by-year breakdown of how much Dumba will make. 

  • 2018-19: $5.2 million
  • 2019-20: $7.4 million
  • 2020-21: $4.8 million
  • 2021-22: $7.4 million
  • 2022-23: $5.2 million

Dumba racked up 50 points (14 goals, 36 assists) last season and finished with a plus-15 rating while playing in all 82 games. 

The Athletic's Michael Russo points out that Dumba became just the 15th defense since 2003 to record 50+ points during as a 23 year old. 

Minnesota selected Dumba seventh overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. 

Now all eyes turn to Jason Zucker, who has until July 28 to avoid arbitration.
