A new deal
Pominville, 30, entering the final year of his contract, would “prefer” to sign a contract extension by Thursday rather than negotiating during the season.
“I don’t want it to be a distraction for me and the way I play, and then you’re always thinking,” Pominville said. “If you know they’re talking and things aren’t going the way you want it to go, then you’re thinking, ‘Oh, are they not wanting to sign me anymore?’ I don’t really want to have that distraction, so hopefully it can get done before [the season]. If not, we’ll see where it goes from there.”
Holiday in Duluth?
A few thousand fans watched the Wild practice at AMSOIL Arena on Tuesday.
“I didn’t know that today was a holiday. No school here?” Yeo said, laughing.
The fans gave the Wild a nice ovation before the team returned to the Twin Cities.
“We were all saying, we’ve never ever gotten applauded for a practice,” defenseman Ryan Suter said.
Rupp almost ready
Left winger Mike Rupp, who will start the season on injured reserve, says his knee is getting stronger and he plans to skate with the team the next few days.
“I need to start doing different things that I can’t do by myself out there,” Rupp said. “I feel in my head it won’t be too long.”
