Let’s go over some news and notes:
- Things are getting intense at Wild training camp. There was a fight during Monday’s scrimmage between J.T. Brown and Louie Belpedio. And, honestly, keep that competitive energy going, guys. [Twin Cities Pioneer Press]
- Mikko Koivu could very will be playing his last season as a member of the Wild in 2019-20, and he’s ready to give it his all. [The Athletic]
- The hype for Kirill Kaprizov is very real, and he’s not doing anything to temper expectations. The 22-year-old posted four points, including a hat trick, in yesterday’s game against Lokomotiv. That gives him 11 points in seven games on the season.
Off the trail...
- There won’t be a lockout next season! The NHLPA declined to re-open the current CBA, which runs through September of 2022. [Sportsnet]
- Jack Hughes is going to be very, very good, folks. Two goals for the youngster last night against the Bruins.
