“We are where we are right now because of guys like Brodzy,” Yeo said. “He understands what we need him to do and he’s been bringing it. I’m more happy as of late that he has picked up his physical play. He’s playing with more of an edge in his game, and with that, he’s been playing faster, playing harder, playing stronger defensively.”

Junior achievement

The Wild officially assigned defenseman Matt Dumba to Team Canada on Wednesday so he can compete in the world junior championships Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Malmo, Sweden. Dumba is expected to be Canada’s No. 1 defenseman.

The assignment gives the Wild more roster flexibility. Its roster now includes 22 players — one less than the maximum — and gives Minnesota more salary-cap space.
