It looks like the Minnesota Wild are pleased with their recent acquisition of Ryan Donato.
So much, in fact, they’ve decided to bring him back.
The former Bruins forward signed a two-year, $3.8 million contract with the Wild, according to the club. Donato earned 16 points (four goals, 12 assists) in 22 games with Minnesota after being traded by Boston alongside a fourth-round draft pick in the 2019 NHL Draft in exchange for Charlie Coyle on Feb. 20.
The Mass. native played in 46 games over two years with the Bruins, racking up 18 points (11 goals, seven assists) along the way. He notched nine points (six goals, three assists) in his 34 games with Boston in the 2018-19 season before being traded to Minnesota.
