New fourth line for the Wild today

Posted by: Michael Russo under Stanley Cup, Wild news, Wild pregame skate Updated: May 5, 2013 - 11:42 AM

We will get Mike Yeo in 15 minutes, but I am hearing the Wild will have a new fourth line this afternoon.

Zenon Konopka won't play and Stephane Veilleux will be inserted. The goal is clearly speed, energy and big hits.

Veilleux, called up twice in the past few weeks but scratched in both games, has played 460 regular-season games in the NHL and 11 playoff games for the Wild.
