There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the Minnesota Wild's re-signing of young star Kirill Kaprizov.

Kaprizov signed a five-year, $45 million deal on Tuesday.

Fans are excited to have the star on the team for the next several years.

The signing was the talk of Breakaway Academy's Hockey practice at Braemar Ice Arena in Edina.

"I think he's a perfect role model for the kids," hockey coach Joel Gray said. "He's all hockey, he's in there, he just wants to win and he's going to do what it takes."
