Koivu Hurt

Bad news in Minnesota today, as the Wild are fearing that Mikko Koivu won't be coming back to their line-up in the near future, possibly for the long-term. Koivu injured his knee on Sunday versus Edmonton and the initial thoughts about the injury have him missing at least a week, possibly the remainder of the regular season (1o games). With the Wild currently sitting in 10th place in the West, 1 point out of 8th place, the team is now looking at the possibility of being on the outside looking in come playoff time.

Koivu currently leads the Wild in scoring with 18 goals and 44 assists in 72 games and has been the captain of the team more than once in their current rotation system. He has really established himself as a good fixture in Minnesota.

This injury may also bring some big pool implications for Jeremy, who has now fallen out of the money of late, currently sitting in sixth place in the Draft. If this injury is serious, then he will miss out on ten more skater games, which he so desperately needs. The injury couldn't have come at a worse time for the Wild or for Jeremy.
