Continued: Wild notes: Cooke is popular in return to Pittsburgh

Yeo expected right wing Jason Pominville to be “geared up” to play the Penguins. The inference was it would be an audition in front of Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, who will coach the United States at February’s Olympics, and Penguins GM Ray Shero, the United States’ associate GM.

The Canadian-born Pominville has dual citizenship. He wasn’t invited to orientation camp in August, but he’s on the U.S. long list, meaning he is drug-tested as part of the anti-doping program that would allow him to participate in the Olympics if chosen.

“I’m just trying to force their hand and do the best I can to improve my chance of being on the team,” said Pominville, who leads the Wild with 16 goals and scored once Thursday. The U.S. team will be announced after the Winter Classic on Jan. 1.
