The Wild is close to cutting all ties with Petr Sykora.
Sykora, 33, who’s been away from the team since being placed on waivers Jan. 19, was officially assigned to the Houston Aeros today.
Sykora is waiting on the sidelines. Even if it takes him a few weeks to sign with a team, he'll have the Olympic break to skate -- and the final week of the Olympic break to practice with a team -- in anticipation of playing once the NHL schedule resumes in March.
