The Zach Parise - Ryan Suter era in Minnesota is coming to an end very soon. According to Michael Russo, who covers the Wild for The Athletic, both are being bought out.

"According to sources, Wild general manager Bill Guerin called both Parise and Suter to inform each of them that the team is buying out the remaining four years of each of their contracts," wrote Russo.

"The Wild will pay each $6.7 million over the next eight years and be charged with $2.371 million, $6.371 million and $7.371 million cap hits in the next four years, respectively, for each, then $833,333 cap hits the four years after that for each."

Both were signed nine years ago in a move that many thought would make the team Cup contenders. The buyouts will free up $10.33 million in cap space and Russo believed the team will be pursuing a number one centre when free agency opens later this month.
