A minor lower-body injury kept offensive defenseman, Marek Zidlicky, out of the Wild's game against the Avalanche on Saturday night. Zidlicky was a game-time decision on Saturday and he even took the pre-game skate, but it was a no-go for the game. I would imagine that Zidlicky will be a game-time decision again or even 100% for when the Wild take on the Predators on Wednesday night.
Stuart has one of the leading defense teams in the Draft with 65 points, only three behind the leader, Stuart. It hasn't quite translated into a better position in the standings, as Stuart sits in 10th place going into Sunday's action, but he is only 27 points out of the money. This minor injury should only be a hiccup.
Zidlicky was not a popular pick in Box 10, not being taken at all in the Sheet pool.
