Ok State of Hockey, we’re out of the playoffs but that doesn’t mean we’re out of news.
Jason Zucker puts on a Wild sweater for the first time tonight against the Florida Panthers. Zucker is likely skating with Johnson and Christensen. Not bad for a kid who less than a week ago was a college student.
Wild are 8-1-1 in their last 10 against Florida and are 3-0-2 at home with the Panthers in the Xcel. Backstrom will face off against former Wild tender Jose Theodore. Great to see Backs back. We need him. Falk returns as well, Foster is a scratch.
I’ll be there in person tonight, looking forward to seeing what a youngster with speed can do to ignite this team!
