A few quick notes on the Wild as they prepare to travel to New York to take on the Rangers Sunday.
Center Mikael Granlund, who suffered a concussion late last month and was shut down in early December, has still not been cleared by team doctors, head coach Mike Yeo said earlier today.
Despite playing in just 24 of the team's 37 games, Granlund is one of six Minnesota skaters with double-digit assists this year. He hasn't played since Nov. 27.
In an unrelated note, winger Brett Bulmer, who was recalled from Iowa Dec. 8, has been reassigned back to Minnesota's AHL affiliate.
The 24-year old Bulmer appeared in four games for Minnesota in his first NHL call up of the year.
