- 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...
