The Minnesota Wild inked forward prospects Adam Beckman and Damien Giroux to three-year, entry-level deals, the team announced Monday.

Minnesota selected Beckman in the third round of the 2019 NHL Draft. The 18-year-old winger led the Western Hockey League in both goals (48) and points (107) in 63 games for the Spokane Chiefs to take home the Bob Clarke Trophy, awarded to the league's top scorer.

Giroux, 20, led the Ontario Hockey League's Saginaw Spirit with 44 goals through 61 games this season. The Wild drafted the 5-foot-10 center in the fifth round in 2018.

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League season was canceled March 17 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The OHL and WHL followed suit the next day. The three leagues, all under the Canadian Hockey League umbrella, hope to complete the playoffs once it's deemed safe to play.
