It was an exciting day in the NHL as a flurry of waiver claims touched the league including our own Wild claiming Teemu Pulkkinen, the former AHL scoring leader, from the Red Wings. Pulkkinen will reportedly play right away tomorrow night and figures to draw in on the 4th line. Alex Stalock survived waivers and will join the Iowa Wild along with Christoph Bertschy, who was returned to Iowa when Pulkkinen was claimed.
The best news of the day is that we only have to endure one more sleep until opening day, and several other teams who begin their seasons today will provide the action to hold us over.
We just have one more night....
