- Aside from Mikko Koivu, who is the best center to ever play for the Wild? Eric Staal perhaps? [Zone Coverage]

- Wild players are officially back on the ice practicing!

Off the trail...

- It’s basically a given that Jarome Iginla will be headed to the Hall of Fame this year, but who will be joining him? [The Hockey News]

- There are a lot of excellent prospects in this year’s draft, but where do they rank among the best prospects of the last five years? [The Athletic]

- Oskar Lindblom, whose season ended early after being diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma in December, was on the ice skating for the Flyers on Tuesday, so that’s pretty awesome. [Broad Street Hockey]
