From the Rink: Coyle a game-time decision against Devils

Wild forward activated from injured reserve after missing nearly six weeks of action

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- Wild forward Charlie Coyle is inching closer to a return to the lineup after another day on the ice during the team's morning skate before a game with the New Jersey Devils on Monday.

Coyle, who fractured his leg in a game against the Chicago Blackhawks almost six weeks ago, has been a regular on the ice in recent days but has yet to take part in an official practice with the club, something he is expected to do Tuesday.

Still, his presence in the dressing room before other lineup regulars lends to the notion that he is at least a possibility for tonight's game. Wild coach Bruce Boudreau didn't deny it either.

Playing with emotion pays off, but it's a delicate balance

Even-keeled Wild core recognizes a few highs, lows are more than OK

by Phil Ervin / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- Eric Staal is a 33-year-old man with three sons, a wife, 13 full NHL seasons under his belt and a calm, consistent, mature public demeanor that's congruent with it all.

Between the whistles, he plays with a similar constancy: eyes narrowed, focused ahead, every atom of his entire 6-foot-4, 209-pound frame poised to strike. When a goal happens, that stoicism is replaced by pure, unmistakable joy, usually in the form of a celebratory fist pump and a leap into the nearest board, teammate or both he can find.

Central Intelligence: Hellebuyck has Jets flying high

Goaltender helps turn Winnipeg's fortunes, has Jets sitting near top of division early

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers / Wild.com

One of the early-season surprises in the NHL has been the play of the Winnipeg Jets.

In a deep and talented Central Division, with plenty of postseason pedigree among the contenders, the Jets have put themselves in quality position as the regular season hits the quarter pole. Winnipeg began Friday in second place in the Central, four points behind the division-leading St. Louis Blues and one point clear of the defending conference champion Nashville Predators.

Local sled player finds peace on ice after accident took his legs

Aaron Holm defied death on the side of Interstate 394 a decade ago; now, he's competing for a championship at this weekend's USA Hockey Sled Classic

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers / Wild.com

Aaron Holm's first day back at work started off like so many before had.

It was January 2, 2007 -- a snowy day in Minneapolis as Holm returned to work as regional manager at an information technology and engineering consulting firm in Butler Square downtown. The Christmas and New Year's holidays had allowed him some time away from work to reconnect with family, including his wife, Amanda, and three young children.

As he was getting caught up with his team of workers, an assistant called to inform him she had issues with her car and was stranded on the side of Interstate 394. She'd be late, she told him, as she waited for a tow truck.
