Warner signed a one-year, two-way contract with Minnesota on Friday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports. Warner spent the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign in the minors, notching one goal and seven points in 73 games. The 23-year-old blueliner will likely once again stick with AHL Iowa for most, if not all of the upcoming season, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on him.
Warner has received a qualifying offer from the Wild, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports. Warner was one of AHL Iowa's primary defenders last season, picking up seven points and 97 PIM in 73 regular-season contests before adding four points in 11 playoff games. The 23-year-old's future as an NHLer remains uncertain, but at the very least, he'll continue to be an important piece for Minnesota's minor-league affiliate in 2019-20.
Warner has had an impressive training camp and has put himself in position to be a callup from AHL Iowa this season, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Warner was named the most improved prospect at July's development camp. Warner hasn't added much offense in the minors as he has just five goals over the past four seasons across three levels.
