ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Wild General Manager Bill Guerin today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has reassigned forward Gerald Mayhew to the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Mayhew, 27, was recalled by Minnesota on Feb. 23 and recorded seven shots, six hits, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in six games. He owns two goals, 16 shots, 11 hits and six blocked shots in 13 contests with the Wild this season. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound native of Wyandotte, Mich., scored a goal in his NHL debut at Toronto on Oct. 15 to become the eighth player in franchise history to score a goal in his first NHL game. Mayhew signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Wild on May 10, 2019.
Mayhew has set career highs in goals (39), points (61), penalty minutes (68), power-play goals (13), game-winning goals (10) and has tied his career best in shorthanded goals (2) in 48 games with Iowa this season. He leads the AHL in goals and GWG and his goal total is the most in the AHL since Cory Conacher's 39 with Syracuse in 2011-12. The winger ranks T-2nd in the League in PPG, T-3rd in scoring, and seventh in shots on goal (176). The winger has tallied 160 points (88-72=160), 159 PIM, 24 PPG, four SHG and 16 GWG in 208 AHL contests with Iowa (2016-20).
