That’s Wild

  • It was surprising enough for the Minnesota Wild to come away from Sunday night’s game against the Colorado Avalanche with two points; it was even more surprising with the role that a couple last-minute call-ups from the taxi squad contributed. [StarTribune]
  • During said game, forward Nick Bjugstad laid a cross-check to defenseman Ryan Graves and had to pay a $5,000 fine. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • In case you missed it, Wild top prospect Marco Rossi will not play hockey this season due to lasting COVID-19 complications. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • How can Bill Guerin make sure the center position isn’t just Joel Eriksson Ek standing all alone this season? [10K Rinks]

Off the trail...

  • After being handed out several second chances throughout his playing career, Tony DeAngelo should be out of them by now. [Blueshirt Banter]
  • Speaking of the giant defensive liability, he will never play for the New York Rangers again. [ProHockeyTalk]
  • The Toronto Maple Leafs took their off-ice fashion by the horns and decided to tie a knot. [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • The New Jersey Devils had to place 10 players on the COVID-19 protocol list—the most any team has had at once so far this season. Because of this, their games through Feb, 6 have been postponed.
