1 of 8

The Minnesota Wild are playing good hockey again.

The addition of Devan Dubnyk has reinvigorated the team, as the Wild is pushing back towards playoff spot. With the National Hockey League trade deadline coming up on March 2, there are some defensemen near the end of their contracts that could be changing locations.

A lot of teams are looking for defensive depth as the postseason approaches, which will up the price for acquisitions at the point. Here, Lyle Richardson of The Hockey News writes about who the Detroit Red Wings may target. They, like the Wild, could also use an offensive, right-handed d-man.

Here are a few blue-liners to keep an eye on.

Stay tuned in the coming days for the list of forwards to watch.
