Marek Zidlicky, Guillaume Latendresse Practicing - Almost Everyone is Back

If I had to pick someone Wild fans are most excited about returning...

From Kent Youngblood via Twitter, it seems the Wild are getting closer and closer to being fully healthy.

From Kent:

Greetings from @mnwild practice. Zidlicky, Latendresse, Harding and Clutterbuck are all on the ice today.

Falk also on ice.

Ice pretty crowded here with three goalies, many injured players back.

Yes, Wild fans, the two remaining concussed players, Marek Zidlicky and Guillaume Latendresse, are back in practice, as are Josh Harding, Justin Falk and Cal Clutterbuck. I don't think it takes me to explain how big that news is for the team.

Latendresse is a top line forward that was just starting to find his groove before missing extended time, and Zidlicky is (supposed to be) the top offensive threat from the blue line for the Wild. Clutterbuck, of course, provides a whole other level to the physical game. Falk was playing a very solid game when his injury took him down. Harding's being on the ice is a great sign for him.

Clutterbuck may be the only one who will simply jump right back into the lineup, but it is certainly good to see the players getting healthy again. Setoguchi, I believe, can come off of IR tomorrow.

Good news all around.
