Wild re-sign James Sheppard to 1-year, $803,250 deal

According to Minnesota Wild beat writer Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, James Sheppard accepted the team's qualifying offer and re-signed with the Wild for next season with a $803,250 base salary.

Russo originally reported it at $841,500, but later made the correction. See the information from his revised article:

James Sheppard got a head start on accepting his qualifying offer just like the Wild got a head start on tendering them to its resticted free agents. Sheppard's agreed to a one-year deal worth $803,250 (corrected; had to correct because he got a 5 percent mandated raise since his prior year salary was over 660K and under a $1 million. Originally thought it was a mandatory 10 percent bump).

According to the Wild's news release, Minnesota also made qualifying offers to:

Guillaume Latendresse
Josh Harding
Anton Khudobin
Nate Prosser
Matt Kassian
