Let’s go over some news and notes:

- The Wild are back in the win column! For some reason, they seem to play pretty well against the Oilers, so that’s convenient. [Hockey Wilderness]

- Also, Jordan Greenway got a Gordie Howe hat trick, last night, which is pretty awesome. [Pioneer Press]

- Matt Dumba hasn’t been fantastic this season. What causing this slump, and should we be worried? [Hockey Wilderness]

Off the trail...

- The racism toward Akim Aliu hasn’t been limited to just Bill Peters. Former Colorado Eagles equipment manager Tony Deynzer (who is a current Avalanche employee) wore blackface at a Halloween party Aliu was attending some years back as a joke. [The Athletic]

- For those who don’t think head injuries are that big a deal, maybe take a look at what Tim Thomas has been dealing with over the last few years. [CBS Sports]

- The Red Wings actually won a hockey game! This is not a drill! [Winging It In Motown]

- Really scary moment in the OHL last night. This content is graphic, though, so watch with caution.
