Victor Bartley scored in Minnesota's 4-1 loss to Colorado on Tuesday night.

Bartley opened the scoring at the 11:18 mark of the opening frame. The 28-year-old played in just 10 games with Nashville and Montreal in 2015-16 and he had to settle for a two-way contract this summer. He's a long shot to make the Wild out of training camp.
