Mikko Koivu’s return to the Minnesota Wild likely won’t come until after the Olympics, leaving his availability for Finland during the Winter Games in question. Koivu broke his right ankle Jan. 4 when he was hit by a puck and had surgery to accelerate the recovery. The captain and first-line center has resumed skating, but Wild coach Mike Yeo told reporters after practice Monday that Koivu’s availability for the last two games before the Olympics break was “highly in doubt.”

Wild Call Up Gustafsson To Back Up Backstrom

The Minnesota Wild have recalled goalie Johan Gustafsson from the AHL, after a lower-body injury that forced Josh Harding out of the last game after two periods. Gustafsson was 2-0 with a 1.99 goals against average in three games this season for the Iowa Wild. The sixth-round pick in the 2010 draft played in his native Sweden last season and has not appeared in an NHL game. He’ll be the backup to Niklas Backstrom when the Wild play at Chicago Saturday. Coach Mike Yeo said after practice Friday that Harding was feeling better but won’t travel to the game.

Wild Blog: A Rivalry In the Offing?

From the moment the gates opened on Saturday night, the vibe at Xcel Energy Center was a little different than usual. Can a pre-season hockey game have a “vibe,” you ask? It can when the Winnipeg Jets are in town. Thanks to NHL realignment, the Minnesota Wild find themselves in the same division as their neighbors to the north. And if Saturday’s game is any indication, the contests between the two will be intense all season long.
