Minnesota Wild Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Aberg (lower body) had four PIM in a 4-0 loss to the Ducks on Tuesday.
Impact: Both of the minor penalties came near the end of the third period, after he slashed his former Ducks teammate Adam Henrique. Aberg has 22 points in 43 games between the Ducks and the Wild, but none of the boys in green could do anything against Ducks goalie Ryan Miller in this contest.
News: Dubnyk surrendered three goals on 23 shots in a 4-0 loss to the Ducks on Tuesday.
Impact: Dubnyk received no help from his teammates, keeping them in the game until the Ducks tallied three goals in the last six minutes. Dubnyk's record sinks to 21-21-5, with a 2.68 GAA and a .908 save percentage. The Wild next play on the road against the Rangers on Thursday.
News: Minnesota reassigned O'Reilly to AHL Iowa on Tuesday.
Impact: Matt Hendricks (upper body) appears to be nearing a return to the lineup, so the Wild are no longer in need of O'Reilly's services as a depth forward. The 32-year-old American will return to a prominent role with AHL Iowa, where he's racked up 38 points in 43 appearances this campaign.
News: Seeler scored an even-strength goal and had five blocks in Friday's 5-4 loss to New Jersey.
Impact: Although Seeler isn't an offensive machine, he's found a way to contribute two points and a whopping 17 blocks in his past 10 games. The Minnesota native now has two goals and five points in 56 games. With a limited role for the Wild, the 25-year-old still doesn't possess much fantasy value.
News: Pateryn has two assists while averaging 17:41 of ice time in nine games since the calendar turned to February.
Impact: Even though Pateryn is contributing virtually nothing offensively, he makes his presence felt on the defensive end, racking up eight blocks and 13 hits in the month. The fact that the 28-year-old receives no power-play time just adds to his already middling fantasy value.
News: Hendricks (upper body) was cleared to practice, but won't play in Tuesday's game against Anaheim, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
Impact: The 37-year-old suffered the injury Feb 12. and hasn't been able to see the ice since. Though Hendricks is closing in on a return, he's not a fantasy asset whatsoever, compiling just two points in 22 games this campaign.
News: Rask (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Rask has already missed two games due to his undisclosed injury and won't be in action versus the Ducks on Tuesday either. The club likely used a retroactive designation, which would allow the Swede to be activated at any time. In the meantime, the Wild seem content to utilize defenseman Brad Hunt as a winger on the fourth line.
News: Bitetto has no points and is a minus-3 since he was claimed off waivers by Minnesota on Jan. 25.
Impact: The 28-year-old has never been a scoring threat and was brought in to add depth in the absence of Mathew Dumba (pectoral). The Wild still seem to value the defenseman, as evidenced by his 14:38 of average ice time. Don't count on Bitetto to provide fantasy value any time soon.
News: Dubnyk will draw the start against the visiting Ducks on Tuesday, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Dubnyk has been atrocious in February, accumulating a 1-4-2 record to go along with a 3.26 GAA and .884 save percentage in seven starts. The 32-year-old luckily draws a great matchup against the league's worst offense.
