It’s hard to tell who is exactly 100 per cent healthy at this time of year, but the Minnesota Wild could get good news with the status of Mikael Granlund.
According to The Associated Press, Granlund will likely return to the Wild’s lineup, although nothing has been made official as of yet. Like we would expect anything different in the lead up to a playoff game.
“Obviously we want to get him in the lineup,” Wild head coach Mike Yeo said, as per the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
The 22-year-old Granlund, in his sophomore season with the Wild, hasn’t played since March 31 because of a head injury.
The Wild take on the Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the playoffs. This best-of-seven series begins on Thursday.
