The Minnesota Wild has agreed to terms with Vermont goaltender Brody Hoffman to an entry-level contract for the 2015-16 season.

Hoffman will give up his senior season with the Catamounts in signing the contract.

Hoffman went 13-6-2 with a 2.06 GAA, a .922 save percentage and one shutout in 22 games in 2014-15. He posted a record of 34-33-9 with a 2.45 GAA, a .914 save percentage and three shutouts in 78 games during three seasons with the Catamounts.

He went 11-19-6 with a 2.86 GAA, a .904 save percentage and two shutouts in 36 games for Vermont during his freshman season in 2012-13, becoming the first Catamounts goalie to start every regular season game since Tim Thomas (1996-97). He was the only rookie in the nation to start every regular-season contest as well.
