Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher reiterated his team's interest in re-signing Niklas Backstrom.
Backstrom had a 2.48 goals-against average and .909 save percentage this season. "We've had some conversations with his representation, and had a good meeting with Niklas before he went back to Finland," Fletcher said. "I think clearly he would like to come to back to Minnesota. We certainly would like to have him back. So the will is there from both parties. Now we just have to find a way, with respect to term and the cap and how do we manage all of that."
