Wild Signs Defenseman to Entry Level Contract

Per Mike Russo, 

The Wild also just announced it’s signed defenseman Bjorn Krupp to an entry-level deal. Krupp, 18, in on a tryout, will play this season for OHL Belleville.

As Russo mentioned, Krupp was here on a tryout and, quite honestly, I haven’t seen him play at all but, in the interest of fairness…Here are his stats according to the wonderful Internet Hockey Database.

I honestly don’t really have an opinion on this signing.  It seems like it’s just a youngster being given a chance with the organization and, honestly, could turn out to be a low-risk, high-reward venture. 

More than likely, Fletcher just saw something in the youngster that he liked.
