Ryan White was sent to Minnesota along with Martin Hanzal for a draft pick in each of the next three years.

Through 46 games this season the physical winger has posted seven goals and 13 points along with 70 PIMs and 138 hits.
Feb 26 - 7:41 PM

Martin Hanzal and Ryan White have been traded to Minnesota for a series of draft picks.

Minnesota will send their 2017 first rounder along with a second round pick in 2018, a conditional in 2019 and AHLer Grayson Downing. The Wild also got a fourth-round choice in 2017 in the deal. Hanzal should slot in nicely behind Eric Staal and Mikko Koivu on the depth chart. He has potted 16 goals and 26 points in 51 games thus far.
Feb 26 - 7:40 PM

Teemu Pulkkinen was waived by the Wild on Sunday.

The 25-year-old has been tearing it up in AHL Iowa to the tune of 18 goals and 35 points in 46 games. He has just one goal in nine games with Minnesota, however.

Details of Ryan Carter's deal with the Wild have emerged.

Carter's deal is for the rest of the season on a two-way track where he'll make the pro-rated NHL minimum of $575K while in Minnesota, and a pro-rated $250K while with AHL Iowa. Pretty great considering what he's overcome.

The Wild have recalled Zac Dalpe from Iowa of the AHL.

Dalpe seems to have recovered from October surgery for a torn meniscus in his right knee. Dalpe is lineup depth and holds no fantasy value going forward.

Ryan Carter is on his way to Minnesota.

Carter, who was playing with Iowa on a pro tryout, signed a deal with the Wild Sunday. He has worked his way back from October surgery for a torn labrum in his right shoulder and should provide the Wld with quality penalty killing. Carter has no fantasy value, however.

Don't be surprised if the Wild add some depth up front before next Wednesday's trade deadline.

"I think that’s fair," GM Chuck Fletcher said of needing depth. "I think we’ve got more unproven depth up front than we do on defense. We have [Jordan] Schroeder and [Tyler] Graovac, who are here, but the guys behind them [in Iowa] are a little more unproven." Don't expect Fletcher to pull off a major trade, as he probably feels he doesn't need to overspend. But adding one or two bottom-six guys is realistic.

Martin Hanzal found the back of the net in a 5-2 loss to Dallas.

Hanzal has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has 16 goals and 26 points in 51 contests in 2016-17.
Feb 25 - 4:17 AM

Ryan Carter got in his first two games with AHL Iowa last week.

The veteran and Minnesota native didn't register a point and took a minor, but these are steps in the right direction as he attempts to resurrect his career. Stay tuned, he could be a late season recall for the Wild.
Feb 24 - 4:14 PM

Tyler Graovac has been assigned to AHL Iowa.

He was sent down after Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Chicago. Minnesota doesn't play again until Feb. 27, so Graovac's demotion was expected to save some cap space. He may be back in the NHL after the team's bye week.
Feb 22 - 11:47 AM

Gustav Olofsson has been assigned to the minors.

Minnesota is off for their bye week, so Olofsson's demotion will save some cap space. He had two blocks and a minus-1 rating in 14:38 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Chicago. The 22-year-old defender has played eight games this season and could be back with the big club after the break.
Feb 22 - 11:45 AM

Devan Dubnyk gave up four goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

It's the second time in two weeks that the Wild have dropped a home game to the Blackhawks. Minnesota will now head into their five-day bye with a five-point cushion over Chicago for top spot in the Central Division. The loss drops Dubnyk's record to 32-11-3 on the season. He'll head into the break with a 2.01 goals-against-average and a .933 save percentage.
Feb 22 - 12:01 AM

Mikael Granlund scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Wild's second line of Granlund, Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker continued being productive tonight, as they combined to score four points in the loss. As good as they've been, they were no match for 'Hawks captain Jonathan Toews' five-point night. Granlund scored both his goals on the power play, as his first one tied the game at one in the second period, while his second cut his team's deficit to 4-3 in the third. Granlund has five points in his last three games and he's up to 19 goals and 55 points in 59 games this season.
Feb 21 - 11:54 PM

Christian Folin will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

Folin has played at least 17 minutes in each of Minnesota's last three games, but he's also been a minus-3 during that stretch. He has two goals and five assists in 41 games this season. Nate Prosser will also be scratched.

Devan Dubnyk will face the Blackhawks on Tuesday night.

He has dominated Chicago as a member of the Wild, while sporting an 8-0 record with a .949 save percentage in the regular season. Dubnyk has posted five wins in his last six appearances to give him a 32-10-3 record on the year.
