He had a tough final year, and because the Wild wasn’t permitted to buy out Heatley because of season-ending shoulder surgery, Gilbert became a compliance buyout casualty.

“Unfortunately, it’s still a business,” Gilbert said. “You can kind of figure out where you stand, what the team needs to do to find room and space.

“It was unfortunate, but it’s one of those things you can’t control. It’s unfortunate how it ended.”



• Former Panthers defenseman Keith Ballard missed his third game in a row since being hit by a puck Monday in Buffalo. He tried to participate in Saturday’s morning skate but left “not feeling well.” Yeo said the Wild hasn’t classified it as a concussion.

• Forward Charlie Coyle missed his seventh game with a sprained right knee. Yeo says he’s “still a ways away.”

• Blaine’s Nick Bjugstad played his first game against his hometown Wild. Bjugstad began the game on a Panthers’ line with Jesse Winchester and Shawn Matthias.

• Former Wild and Panthers goalie Jose Theodore, a free agent, hasn’t called it quits. In fact, the resident of Boca Raton, Fla., contacted the Wild after Niklas Backstrom was injured Oct. 8. Backstrom only missed four games with a strained knee and has been the backup netminder the past two games.
