- Minnesota Wild prospect and St. Cloud State forward Sam Hentges has been named on the final Team USA roster for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
Congrats to #mnwild prospect Sam Hentges on being named to the 2022 U.S. Olympic Men’s Ice Hockey Team. Hentges hails from Fridley, Minn. and was selected by the Wild in the seventh round (210th overall) of the 2018 NHL Draft. https://t.co/KMJRtbopzn— Minnesota Wild PR (@mnwildPR) January 13, 2022
- Rem Pitlick was claimed off waivers by the Montreal Canadiens earlier this week. But what caused his eventual exit from the Wild? Well it’s simply due to the Wild’s lineup construction and what they want from his now former roster spot. [Hockey Wilderness]
- Joel Eriksson Ek was set to return to the ice tonight, but SIKE, he tested positive for COVID and is potentially going to be out for the next two games. He still hasn’t played since Dec. 20, suffering a little injury, so we’ll just have to wait a little bit longer for his return.
May preclude him from playing Monday in Denver too https://t.co/aOOJMYiuv9— Michael Russo (@RussoHockey) January 13, 2022
