Continued: Clutterbuck returns in an Islanders jersey

These days, Clutterbuck has a 15-month-old daughter and his wife, Cassie, is six months pregnant with their second girl. “I’m a pretty goofy dad,” Clutterbuck said, chuckling.

The Islanders played at home Saturday night, so Clutterbuck, who has four goals and two assists in 33 games, wasn’t scheduled to arrive in Minnesota until the wee hours of Sunday morning.

“In a lot of ways, that’s good,” he said. “I won’t have time to think and psych myself out. I can just shift my focus, play and see whoever I have to see after the game.”

Since the NHL began recording hits in 2005-06, Clutterbuck is the Wild’s franchise leader by almost 1,000 with 1,457. Asked if he plans to clock any old comrades, Clutterbuck said, “That’s the uncomfortable thing. It’ll be interesting to see what my instincts are telling me to do out there.

“Minnesota was a great place for me. The stage I was in my career, it was a good chance to establish myself in the league and it was a good place to grow up and learn a lot of things as a player and person. I miss it, but trust me, I’m happy where I’m at.”
