Minnesota Wild Begin Contract Extension Talks with Defenseman Brock Faber

The Minnesota Wild have initiated contract extension discussions with defenseman Brock Faber. General Manager Bill Guerin and Faber’s representatives met on Friday to begin negotiations. Faber, who had an impressive rookie season, played in all 82 games, scoring 8 goals and assisting on 39 more, making him the highest-scoring defenseman on the team in the 2023-24 season.

The 21-year-old University of Minnesota alum and Maple Grove native has exceeded expectations and is considered a key player for the Wild. Faber’s new contract is expected to be the largest in the team’s history until Kirill Kaprizov surpasses it. The deal is projected to be around 8 years, $64 million.

If Faber agrees to the reported $8 million per year, he would become the second-highest-paid player on the Minnesota Wild roster, behind Kaprizov’s $9 million. However, this figure is seen as good value considering Faber’s potential and the expected increase in the NHL salary cap in the coming years.
