While the Minnesota Wild’s regular season is going on and there is enough to talk about when they keep on winning hockey games in clean fashion, the team’s prospects are doing their own stuff overseas.

Yesterday, 2022 first-rounder Liam Öhgren got to score an overtime game-winning goal that caused the entire arena to explode in fanfare.

What a scene. While we get our stuffy suits in most North American arenas occupying the lower bowl, over there, in the Swedish Allsvenskan, things appear to be crazy and wild.

That’s Wild

  • Marco Rossi earned his first NHL point on Tuesday, but he didn’t even know for sure if he would ever get it. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher sure looked stupid against our Wild on Tuesday. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • A whole lot of talent currently on the Wild have passed through Iowa, so The Athletic’s Joe Smith sat down with AHL head coach Tim Army and watched the first game in Montreal with him. He got to notice the little things that Matt Boldy and Marco Rossi do. A good read. [The Athletic]

Off the trail...

  • The Pittsburgh Penguins have earned a losing streak, so what’s gone wrong? [Pensburgh]
  • Who are some players that have an early advantage in the awards race? Is Connor McDavid going to walk away with the Rocket Richard? Maybe Rasmus Dahlin suddenly has a case for winning the Norris. [ESPN]
  • Jack Eichel is making his innovative disk replacement surgery seem worth it so far for the Vegas Golden Knights. [NBC Sports]
  • After some time recovering from previous injuries and being behind Brent Burns all those years, Erik Karlsson is returning to his old ways with the San Jose Sharks. It is almost unbelievable, but he has nine goals and 15 points already this season. [Yahoo Sports]
