Koivu Lower-Body Injury

Per Russo:

Quote:
It was Koivu who hit Marco Scandella with the breakout pass that led to Scandella's scoring chance. Koivu looks fine as he's slapping his stick on the ice in the slot looking for a pass from Scandella as he circled the back of the net. After Dany Heatley's rebound, Marian Hossa takes off on a 2-on-1 with Nick Leddy.

As Koivu's chasing it down, he clearly pulls up with some kind of leg injury around center ice right after being slightly grazed by Patrick Sharp. Koivu looked like he was feeling something right before though. Koivu skates to the corner, collides again with Hossa and you can see he's in real discomfort as he drags himself to the bench.

As of now, the Wild's not saying what's wrong, but it has confirmed to me he did get hurt, that it doesn't think it's too serious and that he is going to see the docs today.
Also:

Quote:
The Wild's off today, but I hope to have more later. Again, right now the Wild's saying this doesn't appear to be serious with Koivu. But that's four of your top-6 forwards injured right now -- two definitely being out.

Frankly, it continues to amaze me this team leads the NHL. The Wild's lost 117 man games to injury. To put that in perspective, Chicago's lost 21.

This thread title scared me. Made me immediately jump to ACL-related conclusions. Phew.

I just about pissed my pants as I read the thread title, but I am still scared, and I am going to be scared until I see him skating on Saturday against the Longie Fishermen.

Sorry about the thread title.

Should I change it to "Koivu gets a boo-boo, questionable against Islanders"?

Hopefully it isn't anything serious. I think we all remember what happened last season when Koivu got injured.

Team just keep losing guys. I do wonder if we look at a trade soon? Maybe we could move a Haula + Zanon for forward depth?

Nope. I guarantee that the Wild will ride it out.

Yeah I suppose it depends on how bad Seto, Butch, and Koivu feel. Probably be looking at the waiver wire. Let's sign Granlund to come on over

Geez, now would be a great time for an All-Star break.

Here's to hoping our Top-6 heals quickly.

If it's lengthy I don't think the team survives. We saw what happened last year. Hoping for the best.

Should've claimed Miettinen off waivers

Honestly, I have to wonder if that call's coming soon, just out of necessity. Obviously it would still be up to Granlund whether he wants to come, but I could see them bugging him about it again, given that there's probably a top-six spot available for him for the medium-to-long-term. Anyone know what the rules say about signing players from European leagues midseason?

Barring that, yeah, I have to think a trade or waiver claim is coming soon. Just too many players missing from the top-six for too long.

I don't think they can bring Granlund over but I'm not positive on that.

One of Coyle or Zucker on the other hand... Though, just having a decent feel for the character make-up of those two, I can't see either doing that to their school.

I don't think that Granlund can come over which is too bad. We could use him so very much right about now. I doubt he'd want to come over at this point even.

Wouldn't have made it to the Wild. Winnipeg doesn't have nearly as good of a record as us, so they got first dibs.

European players can't be signed until the end of their season so there's no option for signing Granlund. NCAA players could be signed, though I highly doubt that happens unless Koivu will be out long long long term. Even then, it seems extremely unlikely.

Jesus. Praying at least one of Koivu and Butch plays on Saturday. We seriously cannot afford to lose one of them let alone both. Hopefully it's just a muscle pull or something.

How long until the entire Houston Aeros roster gets called up?

I guess this gives the team an opportunity to see what it can do without its leader. Get well soon, Mikko.

I doubt Koivu misses any playing time for this injury.

Is Mikko trying to copy Saku who also has a lower-body injury?

I hope they both recover soon.

I don't think that Koivu sits out if its a minor injury. If I remember correctly he played with a bad knee and shoulder at the end of the 09-10 season, or am
