The Minnesota Wild have waived Brett Bulmer.

Bulmer had 16 points and 50 penalty minutes in 53 AHL games in 2014-15. The 23-year-old forward has only participated in 14 career NHL contests and at this point we don't expect him to ever get to the point where he'll have much, if any, fantasy relevancy in standard leagues.

Brett Bulmer has to be placed on waivers to return to the minors.

That could place him on Minnesota's roster for the beginning of the 2015-16 season. The 23-year-old forward has three assists in 14 career NHL outings and he hasn't lit it up in the AHL, so there's a chance that he could pass through waivers without an issue.

Michael Russo of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune thinks that the lower body injury suffered by Brett Bulmer over a week ago was his knee.

The highly regarded Bulmer played nine games for the Wild last season as a 19-year-old before being returned to Kelowna of the WHL where he scored 34 goals in 53 games. He got off to a rough start in the AHL but had been turning it around when he was injured. There is no word on when he would be able to return to action.

Brett Bulmer has started to turn his game around after getting off to a rough start in the AHL.

Bulmer had a nine game trial with the Wild last season, picking up three assists before Minnesota returned him to his junior club in Kelowna where he managed 62 points in 53 games, including 34 goals. "He's turned the corner," coach John Torchetti said of the 20-year-old. "He fought through it, and that's all part of growing up and maturing as player." Look for Bulmer to spend the entire season with the Aeros, even if the lockout ends.

Wild coach Mike Yeo admitted that Brett Bulmer was scratched on Saturday so that the team could have more time to evaluate him.

Saturday would have been Bulmer's 10th NHL game, which would have resulted in 2011-12 counting as the first season of his NHL contract. However, the Wild weren't sure they wanted to keep him, so they sent him to the press box for that game and decided afterwards to return him to WHL Kelowna. However, rather than be honest with Bulmer or the media, the team initially led everyone to believe that he would be kept and Yeo tried to paint off Bulmer being scratched as coincidental. "We hadn't made up our mind yet, and we wanted to see how we did in the Detroit game (i.e. injuries, outcome). ... We're also not going to point him in the direction of you're probably going back just in case if he is going to get in the lineup next game, he has to have the right mind frame," Yeo said. You could make the argument that it would have been better to be honest with Bulmer rather than to lead him on only to demote him later. Either way, we wouldn't be surprised if Bulmer was back in Min

Brett Bulmer has been returned to WHL Kelowna.

Bulmer was a healthy scratch on Saturday, which prevented him from playing in his 10th NHL game. Had he played in a 10th contest, this would have counted as the first season of his entry-level contract. At the time, Wild coach Mike Yeo downplayed his decision to scratch Bulmer, but at this point, it's hard to believe that it wasn't a deliberate move to buy the Wild more time to make a decision. At any rate, there's a good chance that Bulmer will have a more substantial role with the team in 2012-13.

Brett Bulmer spent Saturday's game against the Detroit Red Wings in the press box.

Had Bulmer played on Saturday, it would have been his 10th NHL game and the first season of his entry-level contract would have been burnt. The fact that he was a healthy scratch gives the Wild a little more time to make sure that they want to keep Bulmer. However, coach Mike Yeo said the decision to make him a healthy scratch was coincidental. The Wild have previously made it sound like Bulmer was going to play with the team for the foreseeable future. If the Wild don't send him to the junior level, then he'll have another chance to play in his 10th game on Tuesday.
