ST. PAUL -- The Wild gathered at Xcel Energy Center one final time on Tuesday as players cleaned out their locker stalls and the team discussed a 2016-17 season that saw regular-season records for wins and points but ended with a second straight first-round exit from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
After Minnesota's 4-1 series loss to the St. Louis Blues, General Manager Chuck Fletcher and Coach Bruce Boudreau expressed their disappointment at seeing a season with plenty of highlights end so early.

In addressing the team's offseason plans -- which will be heavily influenced by the salary cap and the NHL Expansion Draft in June -- Fletcher said there will be roster changes, but not of the seismic variety.
"Wholesale changes? Absolutely not," Fletcher said. However, "there's going to be changes with the salary cap and expansion."

Fletcher also had an update on Eric Staal, who fell hard into the boards during Saturday's Game 5 series-ending defeat against St. Louis. The veteran center sustained a concussion but was feeling better Tuesday.
"It was scary," Staal said. "I'm fortunate it wasn't any worse."

Fletcher also announced forward Mikael Granlund had been playing with a broken hand and is expected to spend four to six weeks recovering.
In addition, the team announced that defenseman Jonas Brodin will join Wild teammate Joel Eriksson Ek at this year's IIHF World Championship beginning May 5 in Cologne, Germany.
