Minnesota Wild: Best Addition & Worst Subtraction of 2023 Offseason

The 2023-24 regular season is rapidly approaching, much to the delight of hockey fans. Due to this, we here at NHLTR are starting a series going over each team's best addition and worst subtraction of the summer.

In this latest edition of the series, let’s take a look at the Minnesota Wild.

Best Addition: Pat Maroon

It was a quiet offseason for the Wild, but they did add some toughness to their fourth line with Pat Maroon. He also comes with plenty of experience and memorably won the Stanley Cup three seasons in a row. Overall, he should be a decent addition to their roster.

Worst Subtraction: Matt Dumba

The Wild lost a notable part of their defensive group this summer, as Matt Dumba signed with the Arizona Coyotes. They could not make it work financially, and it was best for both parties to move on after years of trade rumors. However, that does not mean that they won’t miss him in their top four, as he was quite effective when playing at his best.
