According to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, forward Nick Palmieri has accepted his one-year, two-way qualifying offer from the Minnesota Wild.
Palmieri, 23, held out during the summer before signing an American Hockey League deal to play with the Houston Aeros this season. In 36 games with the Aeros, the right wing had nine goals and 10 assists and was a plus-9.
There's not much to say. We played like [garbage]. I think every guy in the room should be completely embarrassed about how they played tonight. Every single person. To start a road trip, one of the biggest road trips and have a division rival chasing you down and have a ton on the line, it's ridiculous how we played tonight.
