    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Playing Thursday

    Koivu (undisclosed) will play Thursday against the Flyers, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Koivu was taken to a local Columbus hospital for "precautionary reasons" after awkwardly crashing into the end boards in Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, so the fact that he won't miss any time with the undisclosed ailment is a bit surprising to say the least. The 32-year-old forward, who has tallied 32 points (10 goals, 22 assists) in 39 games this season, will center Zach Parise and Jason Zucker on the Wild's top line in Thursday's contest.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Travels home following hospitalization

    Koivu, who sustained an undisclosed injury in Tuesday's road game against the Blue Jackets, flew back to Minnesota with the team after being taken to a local hospital for "precautionary reasons," Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. Koivu, the team captain, was on the receiving end of a hard hit by Columbus defenseman David Savard and violently crashed into the end boards. The Wild will reevaluate Koivu further, with coach Mike Yeo "very hopeful" the injury won't keep him out long-term. It sounds like Koivu has escaped serious injury, but the team should shed more light on his status ahead of Thursday's home game against the Flyers.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Leaves game with injury

    Koivu left Tuesday's game with an undisclosed injury and has been taken to a local hospital, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Koivu hit the boards awkwardly and exited the game after logging just 1:35 of ice time. No other information is available at this time. The 32-year-old Finnish veteran has totaled 32 points in 38 contests this season, so the sooner he can return the better for Minnesota. His next chance to return to action will come Thursday when the Wild host Philadelphia.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Bends twine twice

    Koivu netted two scores against Detroit on Monday, leading the Wild to a 3-1 victory. Kiovu ended his four game goalless streak with a flourish, netting a pair of goals. The 32-year-old now has 10 twine benders on the season, including four with the extra attacker. Averaging over three minutes per game of ice time with the man advantage, the center is a key contributor to the Minnesota power play.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Eight points in three games

    Koivu continued his white-hot run Thursday, powering a 5-2 win over the Rangers with a pair of goals and a power-play assist. He's simply exploded over the last three games, tearing off eight points evenly split between goals and assists. This run has pushed Koivu into the neighborhood of point-per-game production, as he's now siting on 28 points in 30 contests -- a career-high scoring rate. It's been a streaky season for the Finnish pivot, who opened with a hot streak that lasted deep into November, but then went without a point for seven straight before this latest blowup. Now that he's hot again, it's a good time to ride the talented puck distributor, who's typically good for far more assists than goals.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Records four points in win over Canucks

    Koivu scored for the second straight game and added three assists in Tuesday's win over the Canucks. Absolute dominance from Koivu, Zach Parise and Thomas Vanek, as they combined for 11 points in a 6-2 win. Koivu has gotten back on track in his last two outings after previously going seven straight games without recording a point. The 32-year-old now has 25 points in 29 games on the year and continues to log solid minutes at even strength and on the first power-play unit. Keep him rolling.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Scores empty-net goal

    Koivu scored an empty-net goal and had three shots on goal in Saturday's win at San Jose. Koivu continues to be on pace to improve his scoring from last season as he has 21 points in 28 games. He could reach the 60-point mark for just the third time in his career.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Records three assists to extend point streak

    Koivu extended his point streak to eight games Friday, collecting three assists in a win over Chicago. What a start for Koivu, who has only been held off the scoresheet once in 10 games this season. With three goals and 11 points in 10 games, the center has been a consistent and reliable source of point production. Coming off a 54-point season, it's unlikely he keeps producing at a point-per-game pace, but as long as he stays healthy, he should rack up around 60 points.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Quietly on five-game point streak

    Koivu picked up an assist Saturday in Minnesota's 3-0 win over Anaheim. The point extended his point streak to five games (two goals, three assists). It's been a strong, yet quiet, start for Minny's famous Finn. He has six points (two goals, four helpers) in seven games and they haven't been easy opponents -- they've faced the Ducks (twice), Kings and Blues, along with the Jackets and Avs. It's unlikely he will set a new career mark in points at 32, but he might just be able to stabilize the decline in his output over the last four seasons.
