  • On the other side of the prospect coin, winger Ivan Lodnia has been suspended by the organization after he did not report to the ECHL. This is after he did not make the AHL Wild roster. He went home to California instead. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • The rivalry between the Wild and the Winnipeg Jets is potentially going to get heated this season. [10K Rinks]
  • The Wild are undefeated through two games, so something must be working. [StarTribune]
