Let’s go over some news and notes:
- You’ll be shocked to know that Dean “Creed” Evason would be really happy to remain the Wild’s head coach next season. [NHL]
- Speaking of Evason, how is he handling this global pandemic? Well, he’s apparently doing lots of yoga. [Wild]
- Zach Parise is in full-on dad mode while quarantining.
Off the trail...
- Nothing is set in stone, but it sounds like the NHL is planning (or at least hoping) to resume the season in July. [Miami Herald]
- If hockey does come back this summer, it doesn’t sound like the NHL will play remaining games at a neutral site. Instead, they could use several arenas for the restart — including Xcel Energy Center. [ESPN]
- Alex Ovechkin played NHL 20 with Wayne Gretzky yesterday, and it was pretty fantastic.
