Oklahoma City coach Todd Nelson on Brett Clark

I think he can [play in the NHL]. He’s not as fast as he once was, but he’s smart enough to make plays. He controls the game back there, Bob. He’s very calm, he finds breakout passes, makes the pass on the tape. He has a lot of experience, he’s a calming presence for us back there. I think that given the opportunity he’s a guy that could fill a role at that level as maybe a five/six. Right now I still think he has a lot left in him. He enjoys the game, he enjoys coming to the rink. I think he’s the biggest kid coming to the rink because he always has a smile on his face, he brings attitude. He’s a very welcome addition to our back end.

Jason Zucker was drafted with the reputation of being a defense-first guy with problems finishing, but his numbers in college suggest that the offense has come along, and he’s the icing on the cake for the Wild here. Mikael Granlund, the ninth overall pick, is a superb player while sixth-round pick Johan Gustafsson has been lights-out tending net in Sweden this year. Toss in the second-round trio of Zucker, Larsson and Bulmer and 2010 might end up as a huge year for the Wild.

Minnesota's performance at the 2010 Draft stands out

Yeo on Heatley: "He played hurt for much of the season. Leadership-wise, everything he did for us can't be overstated." Doogie: How hurt was he? That's the first I am hearing that. Yeo:"It's significant. So significant that he now needs a procedure. It's nothing that will cause him any further problems, but he has to get it taken care of now. Lucky for us we have time this offseason for him to recover and to still have a good summer of training." Doogie: Can you disclose what the procedure is? Yeo: "Not right now."
