Wilderness Walk: Calen Addison still scoring

Your daily dose of Wild news, along with other interesting stories from around the NHL.

NHL: DEC 29 Stars at Wild

Calen Addison came out roaring to start this season and early on, led all rookie defensemen in scoring and approached the top of all rookie scorers. Unfortunately, he backed off from that title just a little bit as the season went on and the Minnesota Wild struggled to score some goals.

Well, now he’s back to doing what he has done before.

Points aren’t everything, but it is nice to see Addison getting a hell of a lot of points on the board in the first season that he has started in the NHL and has established himself as a full-time big-league defenseman.

That’s Wild

  • Adam Beckman had a fairly solid rookie season last year in the AHL, but now he’s rising to becoming one of the team’s go-to scorers. Which, of course, only helps the Wild’s future. [10K Rinks]
