News: The Wild will go with John Curry as the backup to Ilya Bryzgalov for Game 1 against the Avalanche, meaning Kuemper (upper body) will be in the press box Thursday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "Kuemper is feeling a lot better, just not at a place yet where we feel comfortable playing him."
Impact: Kuemper practiced Tuesday for the first time in two weeks, so he could still need a few more workouts to round back into form. He enjoyed top billing on the Wild's depth chart before the injury, but it seems likely Yeo will roll with Bryzgalov as his No. 1 goalie throughout the playoffs.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dowell has been assigned to AHL Iowa.
Impact: Dowell, who will return to Iowa with 17 points in 54 AHL games to date, remains a candidate for recall if the Wild require added depth up front as the playoffs progress.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov is slated to start Thursday's game against the Avs, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Impact: Bryzgalov heads into the postseason as the Wild's top netminder, with the report noting that coach Mike Yeo has yet to decide who will serve as Bryzgalov's backup for Thursday's contest.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Kuemper (upper body) practiced Tuesday for the first time since March 31, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Impact: Since Kuemper's had been off the ice for over two weeks, it's probably more likely than not that John Curry will get the call to back up Ilya Bryzgalov in Game 1. However, even once healthy, Kuemper may be the second goalie on the Wild's depth chart, considering the way Bryzgalov played at the end of the regular season.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ballard (groin) practiced Tuesday, but is not expected to play in Game 1 of the Wild's first-round playoff series against Colorado, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: It sounds like he could return during the playoff series if needed, however.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brodziak practiced Tuesday and is expected to play in Game 1 of the Wild's first-round playoff series against Colorado, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Brodziak will likely center the third line with Matt Cooke and Nino Niederreiter. He missed the Wild's final regular-season game with an undisclosed injury.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Barring any late setbacks, Granlund (head) is expected to suit up Thursday against the Avalanche, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Impact: The report notes that if all goes well, Granlund -- who last played on March 31 -- would be in line to center a trio Thursday featuring Matt Moulson and Jason Pominville.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | STATS
News: Parise scored his 29th goal in Sunday's finale against Nashville.
Impact: Parise closed the season with 14 goals and 15 assists over his final 28 games.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | STATS
News: Pominville had a goal and two assists for his second three-point effort in three games Sunday.
Impact: Pominville closed his season with three goals and six assists over his final eight games.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Koivu had an assist and five shots in the regular season finale against Nashville.
Impact: Koivu finished the season strong, racking up three goals, 14 assists and a plus-6 rating in the last 14 games of the regular season.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parise had a power-play goal and four shots in the regular-season finale against Nashville on Sunday.
Impact: Parise got denied by Carter Hutton in the second on a good chance to grab his 30th goal. He finished with 29 goals and 27 assists, and his 14 power-play goals were good for fourth in the league even though he only played 67 games this season.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Moulson had an assist in the Wild's regular-season finale against the Predators on Sunday.
Impact: Moulson finishes the season with 23 goals and 28 assists, including six goals and seven assists through 20 games with the Wild.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Pominville had a goal and two assists in Sunday's regular season finale against Nashville.
Impact: That goal pushed Pominville over the 30-goal threshold. He finished the season with 30 goals and 30 assists while playing all 82 games.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Haula had a goal and an assist in Sunday's loss to Nashville.
Impact: It was the first two-point game in his NHL career. He'll likely have a high-profile role for the Wild in the playoffs even if Mikael Granlund is able to return from a head injury.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov gave up five goals on 21 shots in Sunday's loss to Nashville.
Impact: We wouldn't read too much into this poor outing, as the Wild were locked into their playoff position before the game and treated it more like a preseason game. Bryzgalov should be the Wild's primary goalie during the playoffs and get nearly every start. He's 7-1-3 with a 2.12 GAA and .910 save percentage as a starter since joining the Wild.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov will start Sunday's game against the Predators.
Impact: Bryzgalov, who will be making his 11th start for the Wild, heads into Sunday's game with a 1.78 GAA and .923 save percentage in 11 appearances overall in a Wild uniform to date.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brodziak (undisclosed) will miss Sunday's season finale with a minor injury, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Impact: Brodziak apparently would have played if the game had more meaning, which suggests that he should be available for the Wild's first playoff game.
Sun. Apr 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Brodziak has an undisclosed injury for the Wild.
Impact: Brodziak's status for the postseason is unclear.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brodziak left Saturday's practice due to unspecified discomfort, but he's still expected to pay in Sunday's season finale against the Predators, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Impact: Wild coach Mike Yeo doesn't sound too worried, but the team still has minimal incentive to push Brodziak through an injury. The 29-year-old center ended an 11-game point drought Thursday night, potting a pair of pucks against the Blues to bring his total to eight for the season.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stoner (knee) will return Sunday against the Preds, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Impact: The Wild reportedly want to see how Stoner's doing before the playoffs, so this doesn't necessarily guarantee that he'll be available for the start of the postseason. Initially expected to miss four-to-six weeks, Stoner will be playing in Sunday's game about three weeks after the injury occurred.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Granlund (head) returned to practice Saturday for the first time since suffering his injury March 31, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Impact: Granlund won't suit up for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Preds, but he seemingly has a decent shot to be ready for Minnesota's first postseason contest. Wild coach Mike Yeo noted that Granlund is trying to accelerate the recovery process so as not to miss any playoff games.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rupp has been suspended four games for an illegal hit on St. Louis' T.J. Oshie on Thursday night, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: The suspension will prevent Rupp from playing in the Wild's final regular season game and its first three playoff games. The Wild shouldn't miss him much, however, as Thursday's game was the first he had played in since Feb. 1.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Playing in his first game this season, Curry made 43 saves in Thursday's 4-2 win over St. Louis.
Impact: Curry, the fifth goalie Minnesota has started against St. Louis in five games, was called up to make his fifth NHL start. The Minnesota native had allowed 22 goals in his previous five games at AHL Iowa, but turned away four early power-play shots and had 17 saves in the first period to establish himself in his first NHL start since Jan. 11, 2010.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Brodziak scored twice in Thursday's 4-2 win over St. Louis.
Impact: Brodziak hadn't recorded a point in the previous 11 games.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: The NHL has suspended Rupp for four games without pay for his hit on St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie on Thursday night.
Impact: The league announced the decision Friday after the department of player safety reviewed the play. Rupp hit Oshie with a shoulder to the head in the second period of the Wild's 4-2 victory over the Blues. He was issued a match penalty for attempt to injure. Rupp will lose $7,692.31 for the four-game suspension, which includes the regular-season finale on Sunday and the Wild's first three playoff games.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cooke's two assists Thursday in a win over the Blues ended a 10-game slump in which he'd failed to record a point.
Impact: He went plus-3 in the contest and one of the helpers came shorthanded, so all in all, a fine outing for Cooke. Unfortunately, even though he's reined in the funny business, Cooke has failed to develop more of an offensive game, and as a result he's of quite limited use to fantasy owners in leagues that don't count hits.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Suter was on the ice for just 11:19 in Thursday's win over St. Louis, which is 18 minutes lower than his average, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Suter entered the game as the NHL leader in ice time per game (29:30), but it looks like the Wild will give him some rest for the final games of the regular season with Minnesota clinching a playoff spot.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Niederreiter snapped a six-game scoreless slump in Thursday's win over St. Louis, tallying a goal, an assist, two PIM and a plus-2 rating.
Impact: Not only had El Nino been held off the scoresheet in his last six games, but he'd managed a pitiful five shots on goal in that span. Of course, he only took one shot Thursday, and in fact, he hasn't put more than two shots on goal in a game since Feb. 1. The 21-year-old still has great upside, but only part of his ineffectiveness over the last few months can be blamed on inconsistent ice time.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brodziak finally broke out of his slump Thursday, scoring a pair of goals and going plus-3 in a win over the Blues.
Impact: He'd been held off the scoresheet in 11 straight games and hadn't found twine in more than a month, dating back to March 8. But Brodziak unexpectedly led all Wild forwards in ice time Thursday, and it paid off. Don't expect that to be the case consistently -- Thursday's 19:06 in ice time was his highest total since Jan. 11.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Curry's season debut went swimmingly Thursday, as he held the Blues to two goals on 45 shots in a 4-2 victory.
Impact: It's no joke to beat the Blues -- the West's top team for most of the year -- never mind to do it in your first NHL start since Jan. 16, 2010. It's telling that the 30-year-old Curry's started just four NHL games in his career, but he did post a very good .920 save mark in the AHL this year. Still, Curry isn't likely to be on Minnesota's playoff roster unless Darcy Kuemper's injury lingers.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Spurgeon will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Blues.
Impact: Spurgeon's play wouldn't seem to have much to do with his banishment to the press box Thursday. Instead, it seems coach Mike Yeo just wanted to get Jonathan Blum into the lineup, while giving Spurgeon some time to rest up in advance of the postseason.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Curry will be in the net Thursday against the Blues.
Impact: With the Wild having secured a playoff spot, coach Mike Yeo will give Ilya Bryzgalov a rest and turn to the backup Curry for his Minnesota debut. At 30 years old, Curry is past prospect status at this point and might have a difficult time holding down the Blues, who rank second in the Western Conference with 111 points.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Koivu was credited with two assists in Tuesday's shootout victory versus Boston.
Impact: Koivu has been red hot of late with three goals and 13 assists over his last 12 games.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Suter scored his eighth goal in Tuesday's shootout win over the Bruins.
Impact: Suter's 43 points are three shy of his career-high 46 from 2011-12.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Pominville scored twice for the third time this season and added his 28th assist in Tuesday's shootout win over Boston.
Impact: Pominville has seven goals and eight assists over his last 17 contests.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Heatley was a healthy scratch for the fifth time in six games in Tuesday's win over Boston.
Impact: Heatley is back to the bench with Nino Niederreiter returning from an injury. It doesn't look like Heatley is going to have much of a role in the playoffs.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ballard (groin) returned to skating Tuesday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Ballard isn't likely to play much, if at all, before the playoffs begin.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stoner (knee) began skating Tuesday and the Wild hope to have him back for the playoffs, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: With the Wild clinching a playoff spot, it doesn't sound like he'll play much in the regular season.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Koivu registered a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over the Bruins, and scored the winner in the shootout to boot.
Impact: He's been incredibly hot over his last dozen games, failing to hit the scoresheet only twice in that span and totaling a sparkling 16 points -- 13 of them assists, the Finnish playmaker's specialty.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Pominville scored two goals -- his first tallies since March 23 -- added an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's shootout win over the Bruins.
Impact: About the only thing Pominville didn't do in this one was score in the shootout -- he was denied by Tuukka Rask, but it ended up not mattering. With the big night, Pom's on a point-per-game pace over his last six, with a plus-6 rating to boot. Oh, and he needs only one more goal to reach 30 for the third time in his career.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov stopped just 21 of 24 on Tuesday, but delivered a shootout win against the Bruins.
Impact: The Wild clinched a playoff spot in the second intermission when Phoenix finished losing to Columbus, but adding a win to the mix certainly makes a psychological difference at minimum. Boston doesn't lose much, so despite the less-than-appetizing stat line, Bryzgalov's fantasy owners have to be thrilled with the win. But they shouldn't be surprised at this point -- he's come away victorious in five of his last six.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Bryzgalov recorded his second consecutive shutout with 24 saves at Winnipeg on Monday.
Impact: Bryzgalov, who already has three shutouts in 10 games for Minnesota, has posted an 0.98 goals-against average over his last five starts.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Koivu notched his 40th assist Monday against Winnipeg.
Impact: Koivu has three goals and 11 assists over his last five games.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Coyle scored his 12th goal in Monday's win over Winnipeg.
Impact: Coyle has five goals and five assists over his last nine games.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Bruins, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Impact: Bryzgalov, who has recorded shutouts in his last two starts, has not allowed a goal in 142:15 worth of ice time, but he'll have his work cut out for him Tuesday against a Boston squad that is 16-1-2 over its last 19 outings.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov stopped all 24 shots he faced in a shutout win over the Jets on Monday.
Impact: That's back-to-back shutouts for Bryzgalov. He also has four wins in his last five starts, and he hasn't let in more than two goals in any of those games.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ballard (groin) will not play Monday against Winnipeg, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: He was thought to be close to returning last week, but didn't even participate in Thursday's morning skate. There's no timetable for his return as a result.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stoner (knee) is close to skating, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: It sounds like he's still at least a week away, since he hasn't practiced, so Stoner could have a chance to return for the playoffs.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov will start in goal Monday at Winnipeg, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: It's also likely he'll start Tuesday, as it's not clear whether the Wild will give backup John Curry a start while Darcy Kuemper remains out with an upper-body injury.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coyle gathered two assists in Saturday's win over the Penguins.
Impact: The 22-year-old forward has come into his own of late, providing at least one point in seven of the past eight contests. He'll have decent odds of keeping the production going over the final week of the regular season while he stays on a line with Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McCormick compiled his first points as a member of the Wild on Saturday, notching a goal and an assist in the win over the Penguins.
Impact: After serving as a healthy scratch for the previous three games, McCormick finally got a chance to play Saturday and made the most of it. The performance figures to earn him at least another appearance in the lineup Monday against the Jets.
Sun. Apr 6, 2014 | STATS
News: McCormick had a goal and an assist to help the Minnesota Wild top the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0 Saturday night.
Impact: The points were the first for the center in 10 games with Minnesota.
Sun. Apr 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Bryzgalov stopped all 20 shots he faced as the Minnesota Wild beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0 on Saturday night.
Impact: Bryzgalov posted his second shutout since being acquired by the Wild on March 4. He was steady throughout and made a pair of outstanding saves in the second period to keep the shutout intact. He's 3-0-1 with a 1.22 goals-against average in his last four starts.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Mike Yeo said after Sunday's practice that he expects Kuemper (upper body) will be ready to play by the time the playoffs start, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Impact: With that being said, it's Kuemper's availability during the final handful regular season games that is probably of more importance to fantasy owners, and it still looks questionable that we'll see Kuemper in goal during the final week. Ilya Bryzgalov has been playing well since stepping in for Kuemper and might enter the playoffs as the Wild's No. 1 goalie even if Kuemper proves himself healthy.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Niederreiter (upper body) made his return to the lineup Saturday, collecting two hits and no points in 10:31 of ice time in a win over Pittsburgh.
Impact: Niederreiter missed Thursday's game after he was forced out of Monday's game with an upper-body injury; luckily, it doesn't look serious.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parise picked up two assists in Saturday's win over Pittsburgh.
Impact: He has seven points, including four goals, in his last five games and looks no worse for wear after absorbing a massive hit in Thursday's game.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Haula scored the game's opening goal -- it stood up as the winner -- in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Penguins. He has scored twice in two games while filling in for the injured Mikael Granlund, who is out with an upper-body injury.
Impact: He's actually riding a three-game streak (two goals, one assist). He could be a cheap waiver pick-up to boost your stretch run.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov stopped all 20 shots he faced in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Penguins. It was his second shutout since joining the Wild.
Impact: There were a couple of real doozies in there to rob James Neal and Lee Stempniak. Bryz will be the man between the pipes for as long as Darcy Kuemper is out with injury. And he could be there much longer if he continues to brick things up like this. Roll him.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parise is playing in Saturday's game against the Penguins.
Impact: Parise took a hard hit during Thursday's game, but nothing ever came of it, as one might expect with the Wild still needing to clinch a playoff berth.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov will start in goal Saturday against the Penguins.
Impact: With Darcy Kuemper (upper body) still ailing, the Wild will turn to Bryzgalov for a fourth consecutive start. Bryzgalov was stuck with a tough-luck loss Thursday against the Blackhawks, but he already has four wins since joining Minnesota.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Heatley had two hits and had 8:49 of ice time in Thursday's shootout loss to Chicago.
Impact: Heatley's play has declined so much that he was benched the previous two games. He was on the fourth line with Mikael Granlund and Nino Niederreiter sidelined with injuries.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Haula scored his fourth goal of the season in Minnesota's shootout loss Thursday to Chicago.
Impact: Haula should have a larger role with the Wild the next week or so with Mikael Granlund and Nino Niederreiter sidelined with injuries.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rupp hasn't played since Feb. 1 as the Wild feel his skating is a problem after offseason knee surgery, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: It doesn't look like Rupp is going to be much of a factor the rest of the season for the Wild even though he's on the active roster.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McCormick hasn't played the last two games as a healthy scratch, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: He suffered a cut near his eye after a hard hit in Saturday's game, but it sounds like he's stuck on the bench rather than injured.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov stopped 24 of 26 Thursday in Chicago, but took the loss in a shootout.
Impact: Despite the losing result, Bryz has put together three solid games in a row for the Wild, offering some stability to their injury-ravaged goaltending corps.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parise took a hit to the head during Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, and the star winger said afterward that he was "seeing stars" and has a headache, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Impact: Parise finished the contest but lost his three-game goal streak, and he'll likely do whatever he can to stay on the ice, given that the Wild have yet to clinch a playoff berth. However, it sounds like he may have have suffered a relatively minor concussion, so fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on their star forward. Next up for the Wild is a Saturday home game against the Penguins.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Niederreiter (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Blackhawks.
Impact: Niederreiter was able to practice Wednesday, but the team didn't want to risk him worsening the injury by playing Thursday. While he should be ready to play soon, Dany Heatley will enter the lineup in his place for Thursday's game, and perhaps beyond.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Wild announced Thursday morning that Granlund will be out indefinitely with a head injury, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Impact: The team is officially labeling the injury as an undisclosed upper-body injury, but it's likely Granlund has a concussion after his face collided with the Kings' Jarrett Stoll during an attempted check Monday night. With just six regular-season games remaining, it probably makes sense for owners in non-keeper leagues to drop Granlund at this point. He already missed 13 games earlier this season with a concussion. Erik Haula will take his spot as the second-line center until further notice.
Wed. Apr 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bryzgalov is slated to start Thursday against the Blackhawks, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: With Darcy Kuemper (upper-body) unavailable Thursday, Bryzgalov will make his third straight start for the Wild. He's exceeded expectations in his previous two turns with wins over the Coyotes and Kings, but his weak ratios over the past couple of seasons don't bode well for his chances of continuing his winning ways.
Wed. Apr 2, 2014 | STATS
News: The Minnesota Wild have recalled goalie John Curry and forward Jake Dowell from the AHL. The moves were made Wednesday, one day before the Wild play at Chicago.
Impact: Dowell has 17 points and 56 penalty minutes in 54 games for Iowa. The former Chicago draft pick has played in 156 career NHL games. Wild forwards Mikael Granlund and Nino Niederreiter were hurt against the Kings and didn't finish the game.
Wed. Apr 2, 2014 | STATS
News: The Minnesota Wild have recalled goalie John Curry and forward Jake Dowell from the AHL. The moves were made Wednesday, one day before the Wild play at Chicago.
Impact: The 30-year-old Curry is 7-9-2 with a 2.62 goals against average and .920 save percentage this season for the Iowa Wild. With Niklas Backstrom, Josh Harding and now Darcy Kuemper out injured, the Wild need a backup for Ilya Bryzgalov. They signed 43-year-old former minor leaguer Rob Laurie as the backup Monday at Los Angeles. Curry last appeared in an NHL game in 2010.
Tue. Apr 1, 2014 | STATS
News: Parise found the back of the net for the third straight game with his 28th goal in Monday's win over the Kings. He also tallied his 23rd assist.
Impact: Parise has come alive as the season winds down, notching five goals and an assist over his last five contests.
Tue. Apr 1, 2014 | STATS
News: Moulson scored his 22nd goal of the season in Monday's win at Los Angeles.
Impact: Moulson has seven points over his last eight games but they've come in bunches as he's also without a point in four games during that stretch.
Tue. Apr 1, 2014 | STATS
News: Granlund likely will return to action for the playoffs, after a hit to the head kept him out for the last six games of the regular season.
Impact: Coach Mike Yeo said after practice Tuesday that Granlund "looks good and feels good" after missing the last two weeks. The Wild play at Colorado on Thursday in Game 1 of their first-round series.
Tue. Apr 1, 2014 | STATS
News: The Minnesota Wild signed college free agent defenseman Christian Folin to a two-year, entry-level contract.
Impact: Folin ended his career with Massachusetts-Lowell, finishing his sophomore season with four goals and 16 assists in 41 games. The deal was done late Monday while the Wild were in Los Angeles on their way to a win over the Kings.
Tue. Apr 1, 2014 | STATS
News: Kuemper has an upper-body injury.
Impact: It's unclear when he'll return, but he's considered day to day. With Kuemper out, the Wild will turn to Ilya Bryzgalov in net.
Sun. Mar 30, 2014 | STATS
News: Koivu had two assists in Saturday's 3-1 win at Phoenix.
Impact: Koivu has 10 points in his last seven games.
Sun. Mar 30, 2014 | STATS
News: Parise scored twice in Saturday's win at Phoenix.
Impact: Parise has 15 points in his last 12 road games.
Sun. Mar 30, 2014 | STATS
News: McCormick has an eye injury.
Impact: It's not considered a serious injury, so McCormick is considered day-to-day.
