From the StarTribune’s Mike Russo:
The Mike Reilly sweepstakes are coming to an end this afternoon and unless something backfires, he will be signing with the Wild.
Russo cites sources that say Reilly will sign a two-year, $1.85 million deal (plus bonuses).
The 21-year-old Minnesota native and ex-Gopher was originally drafted 98th overall in 2011 by the Blue Jackets.
Reilly’s dad, Michael, is a limited partner in the Wild.
The Chicago Blackhawks were recently the reported favorites to sign Reilly.
