Minnesota Wild center Charlie Coyle may not have thought much about giving a little wave in the front row to a young boy during warmups before a recent game. However, the boy's priceless reaction proves that even the smallest gestures of kindness can mean a lot.Video via NHL.

The Minnesota to Iowa expressway continues for the Wild.
Minnesota recalled Erik Haula on Friday from Iowa, itsaffiliate in the American Hockey League and reassigned Jason Zucker to Iowa.
Haula, the former University of Minnesota star, played insix games for the Minnesota Wild earlier this season, and had two assists. Hehas seven goals and seven assists in twenty games to lead...
Watch how happy this young Minnesota Wild fan gets when Charlie Coyle waves to him. It’s ridiculous. Why can’t all sports events be as simple and heartwarming as this, instead of, oh I don’t know, four people being stabbed in the parking lot at Mile High Stadium last night? Why can’t the fans that we talk about on Monday morning be more like this thrilled child than the drunk...
Quick blog as I just checked into my Denver hotel and need to hustle to the arena, but the Iowa shuttle is being called upon again.
Like a yo-yo, Jason Zucker has been reassigned and Erik Haula is back. The Wild is gathering in less than an hour at the Pepsi Center before an optional practice at DU, but my guess now is Charlie Coyle finally moves back to first-line right wing and...
Mikko Koivu scored the winner in the shootout and Josh Harding made two glove saves, helping the Minnesota Wild rally for a 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.
Koivu beat Semyon Varlamov with a shot just under the crossbar. Zach Parise also scored for the Wild in the shootout.
Matt Duchene had a shootout goal for the Avs, but Harding then stopped P.A. Parenteau...
Mike Yeo is a realist and knew that a victory Saturday night at the Pepsi Center wouldn’t exactly salvage the disappointing road trip.
“But it certainly would make a big difference,” the Wild coach said Saturday morning.
Hours later, the Wild showed lots of glimpses of quality play, although scoring goals continued to be an unbelievable struggle. But with a third road shutout...
Josh Harding was brilliant in regulation and only got better from there, showing why he's one of the league's top goaltenders.
Harding made two glove saves in the shootout and Mikko Koivu scored the deciding goal as the Minnesota Wild rallied for a 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.
''If Harding isn't as good as he is, we score a few more...
After the Wild's most recent game in San Jose, where the Wild lost 3-1 to a Sharks team that had lost its last 4 games the team held the ever ominous "closed door meeting." We'll never know what is said, as what is said in the room, stays in the room but we certainly can guess. Players calling others out for not giving it their best, or perhaps not playing with...
Sharks Coach Todd McLellan said Saturday he got a phone call from Minnesota Wild Coach Mike Yeo apologizing for his comments after a 3-1 loss in San Jose on Thursday night.
Yeo had accused San Jose of embellishing penalties.
"In fairness to him, it can be a very emotional time after a game for a coach," McLellan said after a morning skate in preparation for the Sharks...
from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,
The Wild paraded to the penalty box and the Sharks capitalized with three power-play goals on seven chances to send the Wild off into the chilly North California night reeling after a 3-1 loss at the Shark Tank.
“It must be nice to draw penalties like that,” coach Mike Yeo said, sarcastically, “when the other team goes stick...

The Twins signed Jason Kubel today. Yes, THAT Jason Kubel.
Charlie Coyle, making some friends.
San Jose 3, Minnesota 1 – The Sharks are pretty much entirely old Wild players, so this doesn’t hurt as bad, right?
