Wild’s Chris Stewart: Loyalty and work ethic forged by family

Wild’s Chris Stewart: Loyalty and work ethic forged by family

Quitting hockey at 14 was not the hardest decision Chris Stewart had to make. It was the only decision he could make. Older brother, spiritual lighthouse and professional trailblazer Anthony was gone. Billeted with a wealthy family 2 1/2 hours away, the 16-year-old was chasing his NHL dream as a promising junior in the Ontario Hockey League. […]

Minnesota Wild need to shop for defensive depth

Minnesota Wild need to shop for defensive depth

The right side of the Wild’s blue line is being exposed with the absence of Matt Dumba As the Minnesota Wild approach the trade deadline, no one really knows what they’ll set out to accomplish. Under general manager Chuck Fletcher, Minnesota has been pretty active in trade deadlines past, not being afraid to pull the trigger to upgrade his team. He’s done this with Jason Pominville, Matt Moulson, and Chris Stewart in recent years, to varying success.

Gustav Nyquist High Sticks Jared Spurgeon, Offered In-Person Hearing

Gustav Nyquist High Sticks Jared Spurgeon, Offered In-Person Hearing

Spurgeon is lucky to still have both eyes after being high sticked by Gustav Nyquist on Sunday. Towards the end of the first period, Gustav Nyquist was cross-checked from behind by Jared Spurgeon and decided to respond by spearing Spurgeon in the face with his stick. He only received a double minor, as the play drew blood. Spurgeon later returned after getting stitches, so it doesn’t look like he will miss any games. In the video, Nyquist is battling for the puck with Chris Stewart along the boards as Spurgeon gives him a shove from behind he down and into the boards. In response,...
