Let’s go over some news and notes:

- Jason Zucker’s 2018-19 campaign was a little weird. But with a new general manager in place and potentially some better shooting luck, the 27-year-old could be primed for a solid bounce-back year for the Wild. [The Athletic]

- Yeah, maybe don’t mess with anyone on the Wild while Nick Seeler’s on the ice if you play for the opposing team. Seeler just might actually kill you with his hands. [Pioneer Press]

- Want to go bowling with your favorite Wild player? Buddy, your time is now.

Off the trail...

- The Blues just made a pretty big splash. In exchange for Joel Edmundson, Dominik Bokk and a 2021 seventh-round draft selection, St. Louis acquired defenseman Justin Faulk from the Hurricanes. [St. Louis Game Time]

- Oh, and the Blues also signed Faulk to a seven-year, $45.5 million extension with an AAV of $6.5 million. [Sportsnet]

- Auston Matthews is in trouble. The 22-year-old is facing charges of disorderly conduct after harassing a female security guard. [Toronto Sun]

- Taylor Hall has only one year left on his contract, but don’t be too shocked if he ends up re-signing with the Devils. [NHL]
