Recently acquired Minnesota Wild defenseman Tom Gilbert says his new team “feels like home.”
The New Jersey Devils added experience to their shaky defense and acquired a leader for their power play in acquiring defenseman Marek Zidlicky from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for three players and two draft picks on Friday night.
The Wild brought the 24-year-old Fredheim up from their AHL affiliate in Houston so he could play Thursday against Colorado. Fredheim led Houston with a plus-7 rating in 15 games.
Carlo Colaiacovo scored with 1:09 to play to give the St. Louis Blues a 4-3 preseason win over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.
Minnesota Wild defenseman Marek Zidlicky (zihd-LICK’-ee) has returned to practice on a limited basis, a significant step in his return from the shoulder injury he suffered five weeks ago.
