Tyler Groavac scored the second goal in a 3-2 loss of the Minnesota Wild to the Colorado Avalanche Saturday night.

This was not only the second goal of the night, but the second of the season and the second career goal for Groavac. Unfortunately it is a little too soon to form a fantasy bandwagon for third-year center because his other goal was earned well back in October in a 4-0 win over the Stars. In eight games this year, he has earned only two points.

Minnesota has waived Tyler Graovac.

Coach Bruce Boudreau wasn't impressed by Graovac's play at training camp. "It's just important that he competes a little harder," Boudreau said. "I mean, he's a guy that's 6-foot-4, 200 and some pounds. Everyone wants that kind of guy. But the job was there for him, and he just didn't take it. That's what got me upset at a lot of these guys. The jobs were there to be had, and some guys just didn't take their opportunity." Graovac played in just two games with Minnesota last season.

Tyler Graovac is over the groin injury that plagued him last season.

Graovac will get to demonstrate as much on Monday when he plays in a preseason contest against Buffalo. "I’m so pumped," Graovac said. "I’ve been waiting for this since the surgery. Throughout the whole year last year, I was just, to be honest, waiting for the year to get over so I could get my strength back. It was tough, took a toll on my body. I feel right now I can start off where I left off at the end of training camp last year. With new coaches, I’m here to make all new impressions." Graovac is competing to earn a spot with the Wild as their fourth-line center.
