Read ready to seize new opportunity with Wild

Former Flyer motivated to prove he belongs in NHL once regular season begins

by Dan Myers @DanMyers /

EDINA -- Matt Read says he doesn't consider himself a full-blooded Minnesotan yet. But considering his pedigree -- and now his future -- membership in that club may not be too far behind. 

Read, a former Bemidji State University star, signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Wild on July 30 and will come to training camp ready to compete for a job on the NHL roster this fall. 

A four-year member of the Beavers who helped lead BSU to the Frozen Four in 2009, Read was raised just outside Windsor, Ontario but has lived in Minnesota ever since he went to school here. Read first fell in love with Minnesota summers following his freshman season at Bemidji.

MADISON, Wisconsin -- It's not quite Herb Brooks and Mike Eruzione and the famous scene in movie "Miracle," where Brooks, portrayed by Kurt Russell, tells his players to get on the goal line and skate.

Blue line, back. Red line, back. Far blue line, back. Far red line, back. 


It's not on that level, but for early August, it might as well be. Wild forward Luke Kunin is one of nine former or current players with Madison ties on the ice getting ready for the upcoming hockey season.

Suter: 'I feel like I'm back'

Amid offseason that's been anything but routine, star defenseman finds sense of renewal

by Dan Myers @DanMyers /

MIDDLETON, Wisconsin -- Ryan Suter's labor of love reeks of melted steel and hot electric.

It's what happens when your rink is filled with a haze of pungent smoke from the dust and the fusing together of steel beams. The number of workers in yellow construction hats is twice as many as skaters on the ice.
