Wild acquire Kobasew

Quote:

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild acquired right wing Chuck Kobasew from Boston on Sunday in a deal that sent right wings Craig Weller and Alexander Fallstrom to the Bruins.

The Wild also sent the rights to their second-round pick in the 2011 draft.

The 27-year-old Kobasew had one assist in seven games with the Bruins this season. He had 21 goals and 21 assists in 68 games last season, reaching the 20-goal mark for the third time in his career.

The Wild have scored 15 goals while going 1-6, and forwards Pierre-Marc Bouchard, Cal Clutterbuck, Martin Havlat and Petr Sykora have been out with injuries.

Wild names Mikko Koivu captain



There wasn’t a doubt in the minds of fans as to who should be the permanent captain of the Minnesota Wild. Since his arrival in St. Paul during the 2005-2006 season, we’ve seen all we’ve need to see out of number 9. His immense skill with the puck, his ability to always be in the right spot and his in-game demeanor are what leadership on the ice is all about.

Off the ice, the 26-year-old is polite, well spoken, funny, and most importantly, beloved and respected by his teammates.

“He’s a pretty open and honest guy,” said teammate, friend and countryman, Antti Miettinen. “He’s friends with everybody. I think he’s really easy to approach. But when there is something that needs to be said, he says it. There are a lot of good qualities in him.”

Head Coach Todd Richards hadn’t seen Koivu play as much as we have here in the State of Hockey, but the rookie head coach was well aware of Koivu’s reputation as a guy that loves hockey almost as much as he hates losing.

“I had heard that,” said Richards of Koivu’s propensity to take losses extremely hard. “But I didn’t realize he was so intense with that.”

Richards needed some time to see Koivu and his interaction with his teammates, but on Tuesday, he confirmed what we all suspected: Mikko Koivu is the Wild’s captain, not for the month of October, but full-time.

“Mikko possesses all the qualities you want your leader to have,” explained Richards. “He is passionate, has a great work ethic and competes for everything. The way Mikko plays defines him as the leader of our team.”

“Obviously it’s a great honor,” said Koivu. “I’m proud of it. And I think what makes it special too is it’s the State of Hockey and with all the fans of hockey. With how big it is here, how people feel about it, that’s the thing that makes it even more special for me.”

Since the Turku, Finland native was drafted with the sixth overall pick by the Wild in the first round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, this day seemed predestined. The son of a Finnish coach and the taller, younger brother of an NHL All-Star and captain (Saku) just had the look of a star in waiting when he held up the Wild jersey for the first time. He stayed in Finland before playing with the Houston Aeros during the NHL lockout season of 2004-2005.

The youngster showed flashes of his potential in his rookie season, scoring his first NHL goal in his second game and dazzling in shootouts by converting four of six. Yet, he struggled toward the end, playing 45 straight games before finally lighting the lamp in Minnesota’s final game of the season in Dallas.

Despite struggles early in his career, Koivu was watching and learning from the leaders on that team. On Tuesday, he made special mention of one of them.

“When I first got to the League, probably the guy that helped me the most – and he probably doesn’t know it – was Brian Rolston,” he said. “He was the kind of guy that I admired the way he handled himself on the ice and in the locker room, with his family and everything.”

In three seasons since his rookie year, he’s posted 20 goals twice, including his breakout season last year when he led the team with 67 points on 20 goals and 47 assists. In between those seasons, he’s left many indelible images in the minds of Wild fans. There’s his nearly unstoppable backhand flip move in shootouts. There was the sight of him blasting a late go-ahead goal in the Wild’s Game Two win over the Colorado Avalanche in the 2008 playoffs. And, there was the anger on his face when he looked up at Vancouver’s Mattias Ohlund, who had taken a vicious slash at the back of Koivu’s leg, sidelining him for two months during the 2007-2008 season.

“He does it all for us,” said James Sheppard. “He’s out there on the power play, the penalty kill, when the game is on the line. He always seems to step up in key situations and that’s what you want in a captain.”

Koivu has worn the “C” before, including four times last season under Jacques Lemaire’s rotating captaincy policy.

While Richard’s permanent pick comes as no surprise, the Head Coach did have a fairly large pool of potential captains to pick from. With that in mind, he established a “leadership group” of three forwards – Martin Havlat, Andrew Brunette and Owen Nolan – and three defensemen – Kim Johnsson, Nick Schultz and Greg Zanon.

The alternate captain’s role will be rotated among these six throughout the season.

Koivu learned he would have the “C” sewn on his jersey earlier in the week, and he actually was given the choice to wear it, not that Richards expected him to turn the role down.

“I asked him if he wanted it,” said Richards. “I can’t imagine anybody saying ‘no’ to it. But you still have to make the choice. He was very respectful of the others in the leadership group. That shows you another quality of his.”

“The first thing for me was that I wanted to make sure that the older players like Owen Nolan and Andrew Brunette were fine with it,” explained Koivu. “They were behind it, and after that, I felt confident. That was the biggest thing for me to feel that they were behind me and supporting.”

Nobody in the locker room was taken aback when the team was informed before Tuesday’s practice.

“It didn’t surprise me at all,” said Miettinen. “There were a lot of good candidates, but he wasn’t a surprise selection in my mind. He’s a good leader, and a team player for us.”

The Wild now has its long-awaited “C”, but what it really needs is some notches in the “W” column. Koivu, who’s scored picked up two goals and three assists thus far, will have to be aware that the captain’s role doesn’t require him to do everything on the ice. He still has 22 teammates that must play a role in every game.

“He doesn’t have to do it all,” explained Richards. “He doesn’t have to feel the burden of the team on his shoulders. He just needs to be himself.”

For Koivu, that means a string of jokes poking fun at his teammates during the lighter moments, and stepping up when it’s crunch time. It’s the same thing he’s been doing since he got here.

“I don’t think it’s going to change me as a player, or as a person in the room,” said Koivu when asked how different his responsibility is now. It’s dealing with the refs more, and (the media) as well.”

“And that’s a good thing,” he cracked.

“He leads both by example and by being vocal,” said Sheppard. “He likes to have fun, but when it’s time to get serious, he is serious.”

The Wild appear to be in for a long season based on the early returns. It will be fun to see Gabby on the ice for the Rangers against Minny on Friday - provided he plays as he was injured last eve with a "lower body injury". No offense on this team even with the coach preaching a more offensive style.

An observation from the Hawks game last night - the ditty they play after they score a goal is one of the best I've heard. "Rock and Roll part 2" has run it's course.


Keep on Rockin' in the Free World!

WILD VS. TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS
TUESDAY, NOV. 10 AT 6:00 PM
AIR CANADA CENTRE, TORONTO
TV: NHL Center Ice
RADIO: 830 WCCO AM
Listen Live at Wild.com

Last night, the city of Toronto was buzzing, but at this point, it's still unclear whether the excitement had more to do with the Minnesota Wild arriving in town, or the fact that Brett Hull, Brian Leetch, Luc Robitaille and Steve Yzerman were inducted into the hockey Hall of Fame last night. You might think the induction ceremony was the reason, but have you seen the mustaches the Wild players are sporting these days? They causing reactions not seen since The Beatles took to the Ed Sullivan Show.


Team Record: 6-10-0 (12 points)
Last Game: 3-2 W vs. Dallas (Nov-7, 2009)
Western Conference Ranking: 15th
Northwest Division Ranking: 5th


Team Record: 3-7-5 (11 points)
Last Game: 5-1 W vs. Detroit (Nov-7, 2009)
Eastern Conference Ranking: T-13th
Northwest Division Ranking: 5th


Zidlicky struggled to find his offense early in the season, but he has come on lately, and played what Todd Richards called "his best game" on Saturday. Zidlicky, who will play his 400th game tonight, now leads all Wild defensemen with eight points on a goal and seven assists. He has three points (1-2=3) over the last two games.


With Sykora out, Owen Nolan will likely move up from the fourth line to take his spot. Or, Clutterbuck could take that spot, with Nolan joining Kyle Brodziak's line:

Brunette-Koivu-Miettinen
Nolan-Belanger-Havlat
Kobasew-Brodziak-Clutterbuck
Boogaard-Sheppard-Pouliot


Before you head into the beautiful Air Canada Centre, eat your pregame meal at Wayne Gretzky's, a few blocks down the road. The bar and grill features a hall way stacked with memorabilia from each phase of Gretzky's life, including his youth days. There is even a scoresheet that kept tallies of his goals with his youth team when he scored 378 goals in a season. He scored at least one goal in every game that year, and scored nine goals in three separate contests. Plus, Gretzky was in town for last night's ceremony, so who knows? Maybe he'll swing by to check in on his fine establishment.


With the Leafs finally easing tensions in hockey-crazed Toronto, the talk has begun to center on Gustavsson. Leafs GM Brian Burke is trying to build his team around goaltending, and it appears Toronto has landed a good one in the young Swede. The lanky 6-foot-3 netminder has not lost in regulation in his last six starts.

The Leafs have also gotten a boost from former Gopher, Phil Kessel, who recently returned to the lineup after shoulder surgery. Kessel is averaging a point per game with a goal and two assists since his return.


The Wild has never been able to pull out a win at Air Canada Centre, and if it does tonight, it will have to do so without Petr Sykora, who has been sidelined with a concussion.


The Wild defensive unit has cut down significantly on the gaffes that were costing the team early in the season. The group will get a big boost tonight when Kim Johnsson returns from an upper body injury.


Johnsson (upper body) will be in the lineup tonight. Sykora (concussion) did not make the trip with the team, but Richards says that Sykora is feeling better. Pierre-Marc Bouchard (concussion) is also out.


Toronto is one of three cities that the Wild has never won a game in. Minnesota is also winless in New Jersey and Carolina, where it will visit on Sunday.


Let's put it this way: I couldn't remember where I sat in the locker room. I couldn't remember where my clothes were…I couldn't remember how to drive home."

-- Todd Richards recalling a time during his playing career when he suffered a concussion, although it was never diagnosed as a concussion.


D Finger played his college hockey at St. Cloud State, while Kessel played one season with the Minnesota Gophers. LW Jay Rosehill is a former UMD Bulldog. LW Jason Blake is a Moorhead native and starred for the Spuds. C Rickard Wallin spent time in the Wild organization, and played parts of two seasons with Minnesota.


Nik Backstrom will get the start tonight, but expect Josh Harding to get a start in one of the next two games against Tampa Bay or Washington."


John Scott will be the lone healthy scratch tonight.

WILD VS. BOSTON
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 25 AT 7:00 PM

Saint Paul, Minnesota
TV: KSTC-TV Channel 45
RADIO: WCCO
Listen Live at Wild.com

Minnesota Twins catcher and American League MVP Joe Mauer will drop the puck for tonight's ceremonial faceoff, and then he'll shake the hand of Wild captain Mikko Koivu. Let's hope a little bit of Twins magic rubs off on Koivu and the Wild, who are looking to imitate the cross-town baseball team in rebounding from a slow start to make an amazing late season push. If Mauer felt like sharing some of his offensive production with the guys in green tonight, that would be fine too.


Team Record: 8-12-2 (18 points)
Last Game: 3-2 W vs. NY Islanders (Nov-20, 2009)
Western Conference Ranking: 15th
Northwest Division Ranking: 5th


Team Record: 11-8-4 (26 points)
Last Game: 4-2 W vs. Blues (Nov-23, 2009)
Eastern Conference Ranking: T-5th
Northeast Division Ranking: T-2nd


Koivu has started to run away with the Wild scoring lead. With his goal on Friday, Koivu ran his point streak to three games with a goal and three assists. In his last seven games, the captain has posted three goals and six assists.


You'll want to be in your seats before puck drop so you can let Mr. Mauer know just how spectacular his season was, and to make sure he signs a lifetime extension with the hometown ball club. Mauer's good friend and another member of the MVP club, Justin Morneau, will be shouting out "Let's Play Hockey" as well.


When Latendresse does join the team, the Wild staff will have a difficult decision to make. One forward will have to sit, but Head Coach Todd Richards will have a tough time pulling Robbie Earl out of the lineup. The Houston call up has now been with the club for nearly two weeks and has been a boost of energy on every line he's played on. Earl might be the fastest skater on the team (although Ebbett could challenge him), and he's been able to maintain that speed for the duration of each game.


The Bruins were the sexy pick to represent the Eastern Conference Finals thanks to their back end, which is led by last year's Vezina Trophy winning Tim Thomas, and behemoth defenseman, Zdeno Chara. Both Thomas and Chara were sluggish to start the season, and their problems mirrored a rough start for the Beantown hockey squad. Chara has since regained his form by posting seven points (1-6=7) in the last nine games. Thomas has also found his game, but the Bruins have benefitted from outstanding play by backup netminder, Tuukka Rask. Though their stats are similar, Rask has posted a 6-2-1 record compared to Thomas' 5-6-3 mark. Rask has started the last four games for the B's and earned at least a point in each.


Ebbett has been practicing the last two days with Derek Boogaard and Chuck Kobasew on his wings:

Brunette-Koivu-Miettinen
Nolan-Belanger-Sheppard
Earl-Brodziak-Clutterbuck
Boogaard-Ebbett-Kobasew


Since Friday, the Wild has made a total of four personnel moves. It started out innocently enough be sending Danny Irmen and Nathan Smith back to Houston of the AHL. Then, General Manager Chuck Fletcher claimed speedster Andrew Ebbett off the waiver wire. Two days later, he swung his second in-season trade by getting Guillaume Latendresse in exchange for Benoit Pouliot. Latendresse won't make his Wild debut tonight as he waits for his visa issues to be resolved, but Ebbett will make his Wild debut tonight.


Kobasew (upper body) will return to the lineup tonight, and Martin Havlat (hamstring) appears close, but it won't be tonight. Burns, Petr Sykora and Pierre-Marc Bouchard are all out for an undetermined amount of time with concussions.


The Wild owns an 8-1-0 all-time record against the Bruins. The only other team that Minnesota has had better success against is the Atlanta Thrashers (6-0-2).


With Brent Burns out due to a concussion, John Scott will be back on the blue line.

Zanon-Zidlicky
Schultz-Johnsson
Hnidy-Scott


"There's probably going to be a lot of emotions. He'll be excited. He'll be nervous. He'll have something to prove. When you're the new guy coming in, you want to show everyone what you can do."

-- Todd Richards on what he expects from Andrew Ebbett in his Wild debut tonight


Niklas Backstrom will try to get to the .500 mark with a win tonight.


"You do that, you go to the box, you know. Two minutes, by yourself, you know and you feel shame, you know. And then you get free. "

WILD VS. PREDATORS
WEDNESDAY, DEC. 2 AT 7:00 PM

Saint Paul, Minnesota
TV: KSTC-TV Channel 45
RADIO: BOB/KBGY
Listen Live at Wild.com

Concussions, upper body soreness, lower body contusions, pulled hammys, twisted limbs, and rabies. Okay, the last one is made up, but let's not rule it out of the equation at this point. The Minnesota Wild is two months into a six-month season, and they've seen just about every possible affliction, with the exception of goalie face lacerations inflicted by a teammate's stick…and rabies. The Wild had three total defensemen at practice on Monday. Two more were added on Tuesday, but the Wild was still without an ill Kim Johnsson until this morning's skate, necessitating a call up of Jaime Sifers for tonight's game against the Nashville Predators. Johnsson will be a game time decision tonight.


Team Record: 10-12-3 (23 points)
Last Game: 3-2 W SO vs. Avalanche (Nov-28, 2009)
Western Conference Ranking: 15th
Northwest Division Ranking: 5th


Team Record: 15-10-1 (31 points)
Last Game: 0-2 L vs. Flames (Nov-30, 2009)
Western Conference Ranking: T-6th
Central Division Ranking: T-2nd


The Wild's triumvirate of new guys has certainly made General Manager Chuck Fletcher look good over the last week. Ebbett scored a goal a week ago against Boston in his first game with Minnesota, and added the shootout clincher on Saturday. Chuck Kobasew posted a hat trick in Friday's win over the Avs and Guillaume Latendresse notched the game-tying goal Saturday in his second game in a Wild uni.


Tonight's goaltender battle between Backstrom and Rinne could be the prequel to their battle for a spot on the Finnish Olympic roster, or even the starting job. Calgary's Miikka Kiprusoff is the odds-on favorite to start for Finland in February's Olympics, but he could face stiff competition from Backstrom, and Rinne could be the dark horse candidate to take the duties.


When you arrive at your seat for tonight's game, you'll find either a yellow or a red card. No, you're not about to be booted from a soccer game. You're now a participant in the Tires vs. Plus promotion and you have a vested interest in tonight's first intermission Mite game featuring the Minneapolis Storm. Depending on which color team wins, fans holding the corresponding color cards will receive a free oil change from Tires Plus. So let your team hear how bad you want that lube job, but let's try to refrain from booing if your team doesn't win. They're just kids!


Antti Miettinen will return to the lineup and rejoin Andrew Brunette and Koivu on the top line. It looks like Havlat could end up playing alongside the speedster, Ebbett, and Richards will have a decision to make about who will sit:

Brunette-Koivu-Miettinen
Nolan-Belanger-Kobasew
Latendresse-Brodziak-Clutterbuck
Havlat-Ebbett-Sheppard


Martin Havlat will return to the lineup tonight and he might be looking for a home on a line. Head Coach Todd Richards has yet to decide (or if he has, he's not telling) whom Havlat will be playing alongside. On the power play, it looks like Havlat will see some action at the point due to the absence of Brent Burns and possibly, Kim Johnsson.


Sifers was recalled today even though Kim Johnsson did skate, meaning John Scott may get scratched tonight if its determined that Johnsson can't go:

Zanon-Zidlicky
Schultz-Sifers
Hnidy-Scott


Johnsson has been ill all week but did skate this morning and will be a game time decision. Pierre-Marc Bouchard, Brent Burns and Petr Sykora all remain out with concussions.


Nashville is among the hottest teams in the League, but it's tough to point to one player as the reason for that success. Certainly, captain Jason Arnott is once again quietly showing why he's one of just three players to have scored at least 20 goals in each of the last 10 seasons along with Calgary's Jarome Iginla and the Wild's concussed Petr Sykora. Arnott has picked up seven goals this year and appears well on his way to number 11.


"It's a good problem to have."

-- Todd Richards on having to scratch two players for the first time in a long time.


Backstrom will return after getting Saturday night off. The Wild netminder is 6-2-0 in his career against the Preds.


The Wild has allowed the first goal in five of the last six games. The club is 2-1-2 in those five instances.

"You do that, you go to the box, you know. Two minutes, by yourself, you know and you feel shame, you know. And then you get free. "

The Wild fell tonight in Vancouver, BC, Canada to the Vancouver Canucks by the score of 4-3. Josh Harding got the start for Minnesota tonight and was shaky earlier as the Wild found themselves down by the score of 3-2 after the first period. Martin Havlat had another strong game with three points, but the Canucks were able to hold off the Wild's late flurry.

Minnesota Wild - 3
Vancouver Canucks - 4
FINAL

Wild at 33 points through 32 games played.
