Wild Signs Gabriel To Entry Level Contract
The Wild signs right wing Kurtis Gabriel to a three-year entry-level contract

A few days after signing a center to an entry-level deal, the Wild ink another forward to a matching deal.

The Wild has signed right wing Kurtis Gabriel to a three-year entry-level contract starting with the 2014-15 season.

“We’re very happy with Kurtis’ progress this year and look forward to him developing within our organization,” said Assistant General Manager Brent Flahr. “He’s a hard-working kid that brings an intriguing package of size, physical competitiveness and character.”

Gabriel has recorded 42 points (12-30=42), including three game-winning goals, 86 penalty minutes (PIM) and a plus-4 rating in 54 games with the Owen Sound Attack in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) this season. The 6-foot-4, 214-pound native of New Market, Ont., serves as an assistant captain and leads his team in assists, is third in PIM and fourth in scoring. The 20-year-old has tallied 91 points (30-61=91) and 278 PIM in 226 career WHL games during four seasons with Owen Sound. Gabriel was selected by Minnesota in the third-round (81st overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
