Minny 'Wild' About Almond

Great News for Cody Almond. The Minnesota Wild have signed the Kelowna Rockets forward to an Entry Level contract.
Almond had a great season with 33 goals and 33 assists, good for 66 points in 70 games. Almond has 5 points in four playoff games.
Almond was selected by Minnesota in the fifth round (140th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Some would suggest that the reason Almond played with so much consistency this season was the fact he was in his contract year. That may have had something to do with it. Now that he has a deal in his back pocket and the Wild have shown their faith in him, lets hope this only helps his game, not hinders it, as the Rockets make a long push in the post season. Congrats Cody!!
