Warner signs with Wild

Hunter Warner, the Minnesota State recruit from Eden Prairie who opted to take the major junior route this summer, has signed a free-agent contract with the Minnesota Wild.

Warner, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound defenseman who played for the USHL's Fargo Force last season, went undrafted in his final year of eligibility this summer but was invited to the Wild's development camp.

After that, he opted to go to to the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League. With something clearly in the works with the Wild, that move makes even more sense.

Warner played with the Wild in the Traverse City prospects tournament prior to training camp opening and signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Wild on Tuesday. He currently is participating in the Wild's camp.
