Let’s go over some news and notes:
- Jason Zucker might be back a lot sooner than anyone could have imagined a few weeks ago. [Pioneer Press]
- Greg Pateryn is finally coming back soon. The Wild activated him from IR yesterday, so it may not be long before he makes his season debut.
Off the trail...
- The NHL is evidently concerned about players skipping the meaningless All-Star Game. Pretty weird thing to be concerned about. [ESPN]
- Pekka Rinne scored a goalie goal last night!
For the first time since 2013... WE HAVE A GOALIE GOAL.— NHL (@NHL) January 10, 2020
