That’s Wild

  • The NHL season is just getting started, but some of the junior leagues around the continent are still paused, waiting for any news about a start. With that, some key Minnesota Wild prospects are heading to Iowa to play in the WHL until their respective leagues begin.

Off the trail...

  • Finally, Pierre-Luc Dubois has been traded to the Winnipeg Jets. In return, the Columbus Blue Jackets received Patrik Laine and Jack Rosolvic. No matter how you feel about the trade, both teams addressed a need. [The Athletic]
  • With the way the CBA is set up, the NHL has severely limited young players in their ability to request movement or have any power to choose where they want to play. Dubois did the rare thing and used his one option to force a move. [Blueshirt Banter]
  • The NWHL has already been so dramatic through the two days of the bubble and we cannot stop watching. [The Ice Garden]
