"It’s definitely something I’m proud of," Brodziak said. "Looking back, as a kid growing up, you just want to play in the NHL and then you get there, you want to stay. I’ve been very fortunate to be able to be in the league a long time and it’s something I try not to take for granted." The 30-year-old has played for Edmonton and Minnesota in his career. He has 96 goals and 222 career points in those 600 games.

Kyle Brodziak's first two goals of the season were humungous on Thursday night, as they erased a two-goal third-period deficit for the Wild and allowed them to emerge 3-2 in overtime against San Jose.

Brodziak managed eight goals in 81 games last season, so scoring a pair in just over five minutes was quite a big deal. Brodziak helped the Wild come within two points of the Central Division leading Nashville Predators.

Kyle Brodziak returned from the press box on Tuesday night.

Kyle Brodziak is projected to be a healthy scratch Friday night.

Kyle Brodziak (back) hasn't skated for the past two days.

List him as day-to-day for the time being. Brodziak shouldn't be on your fantasy radar after he scored eight goals and 24 points in 81 games last season.

The Minnesota Wild are reportedly shopping Kyle Brodziak.

Kyle Brodziak will center a line featuring the surprisingly effective Dany Heatley Sunday afternoon in Game 2 against Chicago.
