This story appears in the October issue of Wild Magazine.

It's no secret that most athletes have certain habits they stick to on game days. For some players, these routines even border on obsession. Defenseman Matt Dumba is decidedly not one of those people.

Carter: 'I am forever lucky'

Recently retired Wild forward pens letter to fans in State of Hockey, thanks them for support

by Ryan Carter @Ryan_Carter22 /

To the greatest hockey fans on the planet:

Every once in a while, my cell phone will buzz with a notification from the NHL app, reminding me about some young star lighting up the league. 

It's at times like this I feel lucky I don't have to try and keep up with these darn kids anymore. I am not sure when it happened, but the kids got really good at hockey and really hard to chase around.

It's at times like these, I feel happy I'll be chasing my own kids around.

Status of injured players still murky

Update on Parise expected Thursday while Granlund, Foligno inch closer to return

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers /

ST. PAUL -- Wild assistant coach Darby Hendrickson practiced so well on Monday he received a promotion from the club's fourth line to its third. 

With the Calgary Flames on the horizon this weekend and 45-year-old Jaromir Jagr expected to play, it's not a completely ridiculous notion. Jagr is, after all, six months older than Hendrickson.

Unfortunately for Wild fans yearning for the days of yesteryear, there are no plans for Hendrickson to suit up for real. Asked how much the current version of Hendrickson measures up against the one Wild coach Bruce Boudreau remembers from a decade ago, Boudreau cracked a wry smile.

Wild's season so far a battle of attrition

Boudreau focused on righting ship early after injuries, pair of blown-third period leads

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers /

MENDOTA HEIGHTS -- Certainly, the story of the early season for the Wild has centered around its injuries up front. With players out and cap space needed, the team conducted a practice at St. Thomas Ice Arena on Monday with just nine rostered forwards. 

Defenseman Gustav Olofsson and assistant coach Darby Hendrickson filled out two of three fourth-line positions, at least to start practice. By the end, Olofsson was skating in a red sweater, worn by players on the first line.

"It's an experience every day, that's for sure," said Wild coach Bruce Boudreau.

Zucker family announces #Give16 campaign

Wild forward spearheading effort to fund Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio at U of M Masonic Children's Hospital

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers /

Tucker Helstrom's time on Earth was cut short. But his legacy continues to grow, thanks to eternal friendships he forged during his life.

One of those he touched so dearly was Wild forward Jason Zucker and his wife, Carly. Helstrom battled osteosarcoma -- a rare bone cancer -- for eight months before dying in July of 2016.

During those eight months, Jason and Carly were one of many regular visitors to Helstrom's hospital room at University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital.

Iowa Wild benefits from state's under-the-radar hockey tradition

Junior hockey history, growing AHL fan base make for sneaky good experience

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers /

DES MOINES, Iowa -- It's been five years since the Minnesota Wild moved its American Hockey League affiliate 935 miles north from Houston, Texas, to the heartland of Iowa.

Houston certainly served its purpose; as the nation's fourth-largest city, there wasn't a shortage of fans to potentially reach. The Aeros had a strong following and a good history in Texas as well.
