Bartley (torn triceps) was on the ice for morning skate Thursday, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. The 29-year-old defenseman, who was expected back earlier this month, is recovering slowly but surely. He's not likely to return in time to make an impact during the regular season, but the Wild are a shoo-in for the playoffs, and that's where his focus should be now.
Bartley, who underwent surgery in training camp to repair a torn triceps, is expected to return in early March, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He's on injured reserve on the NHL roster, but he's expected to be activated and sent to AHL Iowa when he's healthy enough to return.
Bartley will miss months due to a torn triceps that will require surgery, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Bartley exited Sunday's contest with what was deemed an undisclosed issue but it has turned out to be a nightmare for the 28-year-old defenseman. He wasn't expected to make it past roster cuts but this closes the book on a significant portion of his 2016-17 season.
Bartley left Sunday's preseason game with an undisclosed injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Bartley isn't expected to make the final NHL roster, but this likely seals him starting the season in AHL Iowa.
Bartley (lower body) signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Wild on Friday. Bartley appeared in 10 NHL contests last season, registering eight shots on goal with zero points and a plus-2 rating over that span. The 28-year-old Ontario native will provide the Wild with organizational depth at defense in 2016-17, and will likely spend the majority of the season in the minors. Bartley was dealing with a lower-body ailment at the end of the 2015-16 campaign, but should be ready for training camp in September.
