Brett Bulmer (knee) didn't travel with Minnesota's rookies to Traverse City for the prospects tournament.

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.

Brett Bulmer isn't expected to be returned to the junior level this season.

Bulmer has played in eight games in 2011-12 and if he plays in a 10th NHL game, then this counts as the first season of his entry level contract. That being said, Bulmer is still expected to play on Thursday and Saturday. "If he can't keep up or he's not contributing, then clearly it's in everyone's best interest to send him back," Wild GM Chuck Fletcher said. "But to me, he's a much better player today than he was the first day of training camp." Bulmer has three points and four penalty minutes this season.

It looks as if 19-year-old rookie forward Brett Bulmer will start the NHL season in Minnesota.

It is not clear how long he will stay as much will depend on injuries and the return to action of Brad Staubitz following his suspension. For now, Bulmer has a spot. That does not make him fantasy worthy, however.

Brett Bulmer is one of the 24 healthy players still on the Wild's training camp roster.

Bulmer wasn't expected to make the team, but he's got a real shot at this point. He had 49 points and 109 penalty minutes in 57 WHL games last season.
