Earlier Monday, World Cup of Hockey Team USA players Zach Parise and Ryan Suter and Finnish trio Mikko Koivu, Mikael Granlund and Erik Haula commenced training camp with their Wild teammates. The room was a spirited one after their first official practice with coach Bruce Boudreau.
"Great vibes in the room and a great practice," Parise said after the team's morning workout at Xcel Energy Center. "I'm looking forward to playing for [this coaching staff.]"
Still waiting on Nino Niederreiter, whose Team Europe squad defeated Sweden on Sunday and will face Canada in the World Cup finals.
