Minnesota Wild Player News: Last 24 hours, Centers

News: Koivu (knee) is hoping to be fully healthy for the start of September's training camp, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: The Wild captain tore the ACL in his right knee earlier this month and underwent a successful surgery Feb. 8. The 35-year-old Koivu's offensive game is in decline, but he's still a valuable two-way player that will enter the final season of his current contract in 2019-20.
News: Rask has been labeled day-to-day with a lower-body injury and won't play Friday against the Devils, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Rask had seen limited ice time in the two games prior to his exit, playing fewer than eight minutes in each. Still, his absence Friday degrades the Wild's depth up front and should result in Kyle Rau drawing in.
News: Hendricks is dealing with an upper-body injury that will keep him out of the lineup versus the Devils on Friday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Hendricks has frequently served as a healthy scratch this season, which has limited him to just 22 appearances. Without a consistent spot in the lineup, combined with the fact he is averaging just 8:59 of ice time when he does play, the winger won't offer much in terms of fantasy value even once given the all-clear.
