The Minnesota Wild are burning hot

BREAKING: The Wild are now in playoff position, as they have gone 11-1-1 since the all star break. The Wild were left for dead before the break, even thought they had started playing a little better.

Versatile Keranen finds way to NHL after under-the-radar Wild signing

The news comes as little more than a blip during the summer in the NHL. Signing a little-known forward from Finland doesn't carry the panache of bringing in a first-round draft pick like Mikael Granlund, nor does it come with the exhilaration of July 4 free-agent signings. When the Minnesota Wild inked Michael Keranen from the Finnish Elite League, they knew better. The signing was...
