Wild Captain Koivu Returning Tonight After Two Month Absence
After missing nearly two months due to an ankle injury, Wild captain Mikko Koivu is ready to play tonight against the Calgary Flames.
Although Minnesota has managed to get by without him, theres no question that Koivu is critical to the franchises success. In addition to being the Wilds leader in the locker room, hes one of their best players offensively and on the draw. He also, as coach Mike Yeo put it, has a lot of intangible qualities that make the Wild a better team when hes on the ice.
