That’s Wild

  • The Minnesota Wild are going to be without Marcus Foligno for quite a while. After taking a shot off his skate and hobbling off down the tunnel, head coach Dean Evason declared that we shouldn’t expect him back anytime soon.
  • With the injuries increasing—forward Kyle Rau has also been declared out—youngster Connor Dewar has been called up to the taxi squad. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • Nick Bonino knows what it is like to go deep into the playoffs and he spoke a lot about the Wild locker room and mentality after Sunday’s win. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • Zach Parise hasn’t been the best. [10K Rinks]
  • The Wild are getting nationally noticed and it’s time to determine if they are a contender or a pretender. [NBC Sports]

Off the trail...

  • Scott Burnside goes through six trade deadline trades that he would like to see. They are extremely chaotic. [The Athletic]
  • Harman Dayal breaks down all 31 first lines in the league how good or bad they are comparatively. [The Athletic]
  • On a somber note, 19-year-old skater Timur Faizutdanov took a shot to the head in the middle of a game and crashed to the ice. He’s now on life support.
