SAINT PAUL, Minn. - Minnesota Wild General Manager Bill Guerin today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed forward Matt Boldy to a seven-year, $49 million contract ($7 million average annual value) that goes through the 2029-30 season.

Boldy, 21 (4/5/01), has recorded 29 points (12-17=29), 125 shots, five power-play goals (PPG) and 15 power-play points (PPP) in 42 games with Minnesota this season. He ranks second on the Wild in shots and fourth in scoring, goals, PPG and PPP for the season. The 6-foot-2, 201-pound native of Milford, Mass., has recorded eight multi-point games and two multi-goal games during the 2022-23 campaign, both fourth-most on the team.

Boldy owns 68 points (27-41=68), eight PPG, 32 penalty minutes (PIM) and a plus-17 rating in 89 career games during two NHL seasons (2021-23). In the first 50 NHL contests, he recorded 44 points (17-27=44), the third-highest total recorded by an active U.S.-born player through 50 career games. Boldy reached the 50-point mark in his 60th career game and the 25-goal mark in his 74th career game, becoming the second-fastest player to reach either milestone after debuting with the Wild. The left-shot forward was selected by Minnesota in the first round (12th overall) of the 2019 NHL Draft.

Minnesota travels to play the Washington Capitals on Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 6 p.m. CT, broadcasted on Bally Sports North and KFAN 100.3 FM.
