Winnik takes Movember to another level

Wild forward gets fans in on the mustache-growing action

by Minnesota Wild @mnwild /

ST. PAUL -- Daniel Winnik started off the month of "Movember" asking fans which style mustache he should sport. He'll end it asking them to try and wear it even better.

After heading to Heimie's Haberdashery in downtown St. Paul and receiving a Sam Elliott-style duster -- as determined by social media vote -- Nov. 2, Winnik's now challenging Wild fans to grow out their own versions of the same thick, rich upper-lip bristles. The two top Elliott-inspired creations tweeted at @mnwild with the hashtag #InItToWinnik will receive tickets to Friday's game against the Avalanche, a chance to participate in an intermission contest and a postgame meet-and-greet with Winnik himself.

Red-hot Mitchell confident in latest return to NHL

Recalled from Iowa on Tuesday, Mitchell eager for another crack with Minnesota

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers /

ST. PAUL -- Wild coach Bruce Boudreau has preached accountability in his one-plus seasons behind the bench with Minnesota, and one of those staples is rewarding guys playing well in Iowa.

With the minor-league club in Des Moines playing well, the Minnesota team wanted to reward its most consistent player, forward Zack Mitchell, who has five goals and 11 assists in 11 games with Iowa this season.

Mitchell has points in seven of his past eight games, with five of those games being multi-point efforts. During that stretch he has five goals and 10 assists and is a plus-4.

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 /

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.
