Kuemper gets third shutout of season in Wild's 2-0 win over Coyotes

When the players are bemoaning the number of days off, when even the coach is “sick of practicing,” you know the bored-to-death Wild is tired of watching every other team play night after night and is ready to join the party more than once or twice a week. In large part because of a nonsensical schedule that had seen the Wild play four times in the season’s first 15 days,...

Wild's third win comes in Kuemper's third shutout

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- There's a common thread in all three of the Minnesota Wild's victories: all three have been shutouts. Look even closer at those three shutouts and there's another common denominator. Goalie Darcy Kuemper has been between the pipes for each one, including Thursday's 2-0 victory over the visiting Arizona Coyotes. Thanks to Kuemper's NHL-best third...

Kuemper and Spurgeon help Wild earn 2-0 home victory over Arizona

Wild battle for the puck in the offensive zone. I think Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo summed it up pretty well when he was asked how he felt about having just 4 games over the last 15 days, “We’re sick of practicing, right now we’re our biggest rivals.”  I can certainly relate to this.  When I used to be a freshman football coach, from the start of practice in early August often...

Wild look to shutout Ducks, make NHL history

A five-day break allowed the Minnesota Wild to play some golf before Darcy Kuemper tries for another shutout. It's been much longer since the Anaheim Ducks played at home. The Wild can become the second team in NHL history to post three shutouts to open a season Friday night as they try to spoil the Ducks' home opener.

Josh Harding suspended; Darcy Kuemper re-signed

It turns out Darcy Kuemper didn’t need to play the KHL card after all. No, all he needed was a little bit of an unfortunate incident to get what he was looking for out of the Minnesota Wild, opening up the door for his return. Last week, the Wild announced their top goaltender Josh Harding would be out “indefinitely” with a fractured foot. The thought is that Harding could...

Minnesota Wild: Kuemper re-signed, Harding injury update

The goalie situation just got a little better in Minnesota. After Josh Harding’s injury, the Minnesota Wild couldn’t have felt comfortable going into the season without re-upping Darcy Kuemper. After losing Josh Harding to a sudden broken foot, the absence of Darcy Kuemper became much more difficult to handle for the Minnesota Wild. His contract dispute with Chuck Fletcher seemed...
