Morning Player Notes in the Draft (Jan 9)
On Monday, the Minnesota Wild coaching staff informed us all that forward Mikko Koivu was suffering from the effects of the flu and was questionable to dress for tonight's game against the Calgary Flames. The flu bug hasn't been nearly as rampant as previous years, but it does tend to hit everyone differently. If Koivu does indeed miss tonight's game, he'll just be listed as out day-to-day.
Wes' team hasn't been very fortunate in the injury-sense, ranking 23rd in the pool in skater games played, with only 434 games to date, 68 games behind the pool leader through Monday night. That has led to his team dropping down to 22nd in the standings.
