Goaltender Johan Gustafsson (pronounced YOH-han GUHS-tahf-suhn) has signed an entry-level contract with the Minnesota Wild.

That makes him the fifth player from the Wild's 2010 draft class that has signed an entry-level contract joining Brett Bulmer, Mikael Granlund, Johan Larsson and Jason Zucker.

Gustafsson, 20, had a 1.68 goals-against average (GAA) and a .932 save percentage in 29 games to help lead Lulea HF to the best regular-season record in Sweden's Elite League this season.

Gustafsson, a 6-foot-1, 187-pound native of Koping, Sweden, ranked second in the League in goals against and fifth in save percentage. He also helped lead Sweden to the gold medal at the 2012 World Junior Championship going 5-0-0 with a 2.20 goals against and an .888 save percentage.

Gustafsson was originally selected by the Wild in the sixth round (159th overall) of the 2010 draft.
