F Erik Haula Signed to Entry Contract

Russo's Article about it

Quote:
As expected, the Wild has signed Gophers center Erik Haula, who led the U in scoring the past two seasons, to a two-year entry-level deal. He signed an amateur tryout and will immediately report to Houston, where he is eligible to play in the Calder Cup playoffs.

He is actually flying there as we speak. His contract is the max for a 2009 pick, I understand, with max A bonuses. Not bad for a 2009 seventh-rounder.
Two year deal, max bonuses, going straight to Houston.

glad he is inked though. It would have sucked if we lost him along with Larsson.

Good for him. Really impressive stats from NCAA this year and seems like a good two-way guy. Seems a bit streaky though. I wouldn't mind a younger Matt Cullen.

Also, former Gopher, which makes certain someone very happy.

Should be interesting to see how Haula develops, good for him. Man the Gophers are just getting gutted who is left? Rau?

Awesome, hope he adds some immediate talent and depth to the Aeros for the rest of the season. I really hope he turns into Larsson 2.0 but I guess we'll all have to wait and see. Also, it is great to see 2 7th round picks signed to entry-level deals in the same year. No Eero Elo's anymore.

So, does this make Rau the Gophers' best player now?

Rau, Condon, Warning, the Reilly brothers, Boyd, etc. Plus they have one of the greatest freshman classes that I can remember coming in: Cammaretta, Fasching, Vanelli, et al. Most importantly, though, Wilcox will be back.

They should be favorites to win the new Big 10 Conference.

Good. Considering how late he was drafted, he's developed very well.

He's got the speed and hands... and smarts.. to make it in the NHL no doubt. Better prospect than Phillips or Bulmer I'm sure.

The mass exodus continues. I see Alt left today as well.

Intrigued to see how he turns out in the NHL. Am I the only who sees a more mature Granlund in Haula? He's certainly a point getter. Was strong enough in the WCHA, and with reasonable speed. Very heady. 11 months older than Granlund, and I'm guessing stronger ( which isn't saying much).

I'm excited to see how the AHL treats him.

Nice to hear! But I think you guys have seen his play more than I have. A couple of WJC games, that's all.

I hope all the best for him!

They have to hope those freshmen do produce right away. As it stands now I think Wisconsin is the favorite in the B1G.

Haula's deal is actually 2 years because of his age. Seventh-rounder paid like an 09 first-rounder. Got max, I'm told #mnwild
This shows you how much the Wild think of him....

Yes. Did you see any games when Granlund and Haula played at the same WJC team? The skill difference was quite noticeable. Of course its been a couple of years and they both have come forward, but you just don't get MG's sense of the game in a few years. Haula might have easier time in NA for some time, but MG will make the transition.

Awesome signing, I think he will be great in Houston and for the future. He can play center/wing and has been good with the gophers.

It looks that way. Minnesota is looking like the Badgers after the 2010. So much talent leaving early.

But so much more coming in....This might be the best freshman class the Gophers have had in quite some time.

But I wouldn't expect them to come in their freshman year and produce like Haula's and Bjugstad's. Unless they are all Nic Kerdiles'
