St. PAUL, Minnesota — The Minnesota Wild have signed forward Matt Boldy to a seven-year, $49 million contract extension.

General manager Bill Guerin announced the deal Monday. Boldy will count $7 million against the salary cap through 2029-30 on a deal that begins next season.

Boldy was set to become a restricted free agent this summer. Minnesota paid him to an extension before he reached the 100 game mark in the NHL.

The 21-year-old from Milford, Massachusetts has 68 points in 89 regular season games, including 29 points in 42 games this year. He scored once in Minnesota’s playoff series last spring.

Boldy is the latest young player to cash in on his entry-level contract, following the likes of Buffalo’s Tage Thompson, New Jersey’s Jack Hughes and Dallas’ Jason Robertson.
