Stu Bickel will be listed as a healthy scratch once again Wednesday night versus the Flames.

Bickel has not played in a game since January 3rd and has recorded just one assists in nine games played this season. When he is in the lineup, he has the ability to rack up serious penalty minutes with 46 this season, so those in daily leagues and in need of penalty minutes should keep Bickel on their watch list.

The Minnesota Wild have summoned Stu Bickel.

Stu Bickel will back tag in Tuesday night against San Jose with Nate Prosser out sick with a stomach bug.

Don't let Bickel's big PIM number fool you, he picked up 39 minutes in the second period on Saturday in Dallas. After sitting for a two minute for unsportsmanlike conduct, he would fight Jason Demers not eight minutes later. In the process he picked up an instigator minor, a 10-minute misconduct, and a 10-minute game misconduct, plus a 10-minute aggressor penalty. Yep, Bickel went a bit batty.

Stu Bickel set a Minnesota Wild franchise record with 39 penalty minutes in Saturday's loss to Dallas.

The Wild were down big in this game so it's clear they were a frustrated bunch. Most of Bickel's damage was done in one altercation when he dropped the gloves with Jason Demers in the second period. The 28-year-old picked up 37 of his 39 minutes in that sequence. What's even more impressive is the fact that Bickel managed to get all those penalty minutes in just 1:29 of ice time.

Stu Bickel will yet again be a healthy scratch for the Wild Wednesday night versus the Canadiens.

Bickel has played in just three games for the Wild this year with nothing to show for on the stat sheet besides two penalty minutes and plus one rating. He is not a fantasy contributor for the time being. Christian Folin will instead suit up in place of the sick Ryan Suter.
