The Minnesota Wild have added Darryl Sydor to their coaching staff.
New head coach Mike Yeo added Sydor who retired after an 18 year NHL career a year ago. "It's the sign of the times," Sydor said of young staffs as Yeo is only 37. "You see this happening around the league. The biggest thing I liked when I played was communication.

Sydor had 98 goals and 507 points in 1291 NHL games. Fri, Jul 1, 2011 09:02:00 AM

Darryl Sydor will spend his fourth consecutive game in the press box Monday.

Carlo Colaiacovo has been playing well with Erik Johnson, so there hasn't been any room for Sydor in the lineup lately. Sydor has been practicing hard and he probably will work his way back into the Blues' lineup, but he won't have any fantasy value this season.

The St. Louis Blues have signed defenseman Darryl Sydor to a one-year contract.

Darryl Sydor has a good chance to make the St. Louis Blues.

Sydor is on a professional tryout with the Blues. While he has no fantasy value, Sydor will give the Blues blueline a huge boost with his veteran presence. The Blues could use a mentor for their young rearguards like Erik Johnson and Alex Peitrangelo, so don't be surprised if Sydor signs a contract with St. Louis.

Darryl Sydor teamed up with fellow defenseman Matt Niskanen in practice on Monday.

The veteran defenseman had his first practice with the Stars since being acquired in a trade with Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Darryl Sydor is a Dallas Star once more.

The 36-year-old veteran rearguard was traded back to Dallas in exchange for 35-year-old blueliner Philippe Boucher late Saturday night. Sydor was playing sporadically for the Penguins and will likely continue to do so for the Stars. As a result, he remains a very marginal fantasy asset.

Darryl Sydor was a healthy scratch in game one of the playoffs.

Sydor certainly wasn't happy about the situation, but he will likely see some action if the Penguins go on an extended playoff run. Injuries are a normal part of the post-season, as is the coaches decision to bench players for their performance.
