The Minnesota Wild are just getting back into the whole rhythm of things after an extended break over the weekend. They are back in action on Tuesday, as they start a three-game road trip against the Los Angeles Kings. Unfortunately, Ryan Hartman and Brandon Duhaime are still out for a length period of time and Marcus Foligno is slowly making his return, so that means some reinforcements from the AHL.
On Sunday, the team announced that they have recalled forwards Adam Beckman and Joseph Cramarossa. Giving some extra security on the road.

We've recalled forwards Adam Beckman and Joseph Cramarossa!#mnwild
In addition to these two dudes, Jordan Greenway is expected to make his return on Tuesday. Thank goodness.
Beckman is certainly the more exciting out of the two, since at the age of just 21, he might be getting an extended look after starting his sophomore AHL season with three goals and six points in eight games. The Wild could use someone that likes to shoot the puck, that’s for sure.

Off the trail...
- The Boston Bruins made the dumbest mistake imaginable — signing a hockey player that has done horrible, horrible things that has been reported on extensively, while the player shows no remorse. Well, after 48 hours, the team decided to opt out of the contract agreement because of the backlash it caused. They’re still stupid as hell. [Yahoo Sports]

- He broke one record on his way to another. Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin broke Gordie Howe’s record of most goals scored for one NHL team when he scored his 787th over the weekend. A neat little bonus, he was wearing the screaming eagle. [NHL dot com]
