Palmer is a Minnesotan, thus he is clearly the answer. The fact that he is from Fridley (just a couple miles from my own hometown) makes it even better. Expect there to be a few folks at the X tonight pulling a little extra hard for one player in particular. Hopefully the kid is ready, as he steps into a lineup that needs him to get it, and get it immediately.
After the jump, let's meet Jarod Palmer.
From Ms. Conduct:
Last year from T3I:
The geniuses here at Hockey Wilderness also wrote a bit about him when the Wild signed him. The question is... is Nathan still excited?
If that video wasn't included here, Nathan may have been angry.
Wouldn't suggest this tonight.
More video HERE, including quite a few fights. Never pegged him to be that guy.
Where Will He Play?
Your guess is as good as anyone else's. If Bouchard doesn't play, Palmer has to be in the top six. If Bouchard does play, maybe Palmer moves into a third line role. The lineup is so up in the air right now, it would be impossible to venture the right guess here. His skill set is middle six, so that's where he should line up.
