That’s Wild

  • Minnesota Wild head coach Dean Evason absolutely cannot get enough of the combination of Joel Eriksson Ek, Mats Zuccarello, and Kirill Kaprizov. He even said Joel was a “perfect fit” for them. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • The Wild claimed center Rem Pitlick off waivers from the Nashville Predators. Whether or not the 24-year-old center gets in any preseason action is still to be determined, but he’s here and that changes some things. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • We went around the Central division and ranked the goaltenders. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • In Russo’s latest, he speculates that Marco Rossi will be heading down to Iowa and for a long time, as due to some loophole he’s eligible for any entry-level contract slide if he plays less than 10 NHL games this season. His rookie deal could be beneficial as the Wild go through the Suter/Parise buyouts. [The Athletic]
