Junior Forward Brandon Duhaime has signed a two-year entry level contract with the Minnesota Wild, thus forfeiting his Senior year eligibility at Providence for the upcoming season.

Duhaime will report to the Iowa Wild, the AHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild for the rest of the season.  The rest of the season is classified as an amateur tryout with the Iowa Wild and the 2-year contract that he signed kicks in next season.

This season, Duhaime recorded career-highs in games played (42), goals (11), assists (23), points (34), shots (101), plus-minus (plus-15) and game-winning goals (3). He tallied five points in three NCAA tournament games and boasted 11 multi-point games this season. Duhaime also led the Friars in face-off percentage (.595) and penalty minutes (53).

Duhaime was originally selected by the Wild in the fourth round (106th overall) of the 2016 NHL Draft.  During his time at Providence, he earned Third Team Hockey East All-Star honors this past season and was the Hockey East’s Player of the Month for December after recording one goal and seven assists in four games that month.
