ILYA BRYZGALOV RUMORS

Ilya Bryzgalov 'would very much like' to be back with Wild, agent says

Ilya Bryzgalov really enjoyed his time in Minnesota at the end of last season. His arrival to the team was mutually beneficial, as he went 7-1-3 in 12 appearances during the playoff race as the Wild dealt with a litany of goaltending problems last season. In fact, Bryzgalov enjoyed himself so much with the Wild that it sounds like he desperately wants to return to the team next...

Wild ride for Bryzgalov ends with unlucky bounce

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Two bizarre bounces, and the wildest ride yet for Ilya Bryzgalov came to the cruelest of conclusions. Surrounded by a throng of reporters in front of his locker Tuesday night, Minnesota's infamously quirky goaltender spoke plainly, honestly. There were no hilariously short responses to questions, nothing to add to his portfolio of memorable sound bites in thick...

Bryzgalov enjoys 'very, very nice' night in shutout victory

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The last time Ilya Bryzgalov tended goal like this, Sean Paul's "Temperature" topped the music charts. "300" ranked as America's most popular feature film. Wild center Mikael Granlund, who scored twice in Minnesota's monumental Western Conference semifinal win Tuesday against Chicago, was 14 years old. The Anaheim Ducks still had...

Minnesota Wild secures 7th seed in Stanley Cup Playoffs

Minnesota Wild: Ilya Bryzgalov is the playoff goalie

Forgive me for completely taking a 180 degree turn when it comes to my thoughts on the Minnesota Wild’s goaltending situation. Just three weeks ago, I was exclaiming that Darcy Kuemper has to be the guy moving forward. The most recent piece I posted claimed that if Josh Harding is healthy he deserves the nod in the playoffs. Today, I’m going to say something that just over a...

Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov eggs on taunting Winnipeg Jets fans

When it was rumored the Phoenix Coyotes were going to move to Winnipeg, then Coyotes goalie Ilya Bryzgalov made it known that he wanted nothing to do with Winnipeg. The fans let him hear it in his first game back in Winnipeg and Bryzgalov egged them on, asking for more. It should be noted that he did this during the play while the puck was in his zone because he is after all, Ilya...

WATCH: Wild goalie makes fan's night by giving her stick

YouTube Prior to Wednesday’s tilt against the Canucks, Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov handed his stick to a young fan waiting at the glass by the end of the bench.  Bryzgalov was just traded to Minnesota from Edmonton in early March.  Things like this go a long way to getting your new fans on your side. I think this is where I say, “this is what it’s all about people.”

WATCH: Ilya Bryzgalov throws stick in disgust

Some days aren't the best for Edmonton Oilers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. Sure, he'll make combined $10 million this season between his bought out Philadelphia Flyer contract and the one he's earning now in Edmonton, and he's mostly played well with the Oil (a .916 save percentage in nine games despite a losing record). But some days, your old team comes back from...

Ilya Bryzgalov’s Agent Says Flyers’ Defensive System Is ‘Terrible for Goaltenders’

For all the bizarre things that Ilya Bryzgalov has said over the years, he seemed to take the Flyers’ buyout of his contract about as well as anyone could have expected. The netminder even released a statement through his agent thanking the Philadelphia organization for the “faith” they showed in Bryzgalov when first signing him to the seven-year deal. However, it seems that...
