  • Wild's Thomas Vanek: Wild will buy out contract

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/24/16) Vanek has been informed the Wild will buy out the final year on his contract, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The move would give the Wild $5 million in salary cap space for free agency. Vanek has been a disappointment since joining the Wild as he scored a career-low 18 goals in 74 games last season. He had just 93 points in two seasons despite signing a three-year, $19.5 million contract.

    Wild's Thomas Vanek: Wants to return, possible buyout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/28/16) Vanek has stated his desire to remain with the Wild, Michael Russo of The Star Tribune reports. "I signed here not because this is where I live. I signed here because I truly love it here, and I want to win here," Vanek said.

    The 32-year-old left winger scored a career-low of 18 goals in 74 games. He also missed four of the last regular-season games and the entire first round due to broken and displaced ribs. With one year left on his contract, Vanek is hoping the Wild decide not to buy him out--should a buyout occur, extra cap space would become available to the Wild this offseason.

    Wild's Thomas Vanek: Won't require surgery on ribs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/27/16) Vanek has been suffering from broken and displaced ribs, but will not require offseason surgery on the issue, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports.

    Vanek's was labeled day-to-day towards the end of the playoff run, so the issue likely wouldn't have cost him much more time. There's no reason to believe the winger won't be ready to go for the start of 2016-17, looking to build off a campaign in which he tallied 41 points in 74 games.

    Wild's Thomas Vanek: No go for Game 6

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/16) Vanek (lower body) will not play in Sunday's Game 6 against the Stars, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    Unfortunately for Vanek, he was unable to suit up for Friday's thrilling comeback win in overtime for Game 5. Nine goals were scored in that contest, providing fantasy players with plenty of movement in their respective games. At this point, Vanek can only hope for his team to force Game 7, which is scheduled for Tuesday.

    Wild's Thomas Vanek: Return date unknown

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/21/16) Vanek (lower body) is unsure when he'll be ready to return, but his status is officially day-to-day, the Star Tribune reports.

    Vanek reportedly skated hard in practice Wednesday morning and the winger isn't letting go of hopes to return for the first-round series against the Stars. Of course, Vanek that could be wishful thinking as Dallas could win the series after five games Friday night. "I feel good skating, shooting. I can shoot, but I don't feel fully comfortable letting it go yet. Again, I feel like I'm getting close, but not quite," Vanek said.
