  • Bjugstad signed a one-year, $900,000 extension with Minnesota on Monday. Bjugstad tallied 17 points and 48 hits in 44 games with the Wild during the 2020-21 campaign and added one goal in six postseason appearances. He averaged 11:49 of ice time per game and should have a similar bottom-six role during the 2021-22 season. The 6-foot-6 forward was scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency this offseason but is now signed on for a second season with Minnesota.

  • Bjugstad scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Golden Knights in Game 6. Bjugstad got loose on a mini-breakaway and buried a backhand tally for the Wild's third goal. It was the 28-year-old's first point in five appearances during the postseason. The Minnesota native has added nine shots on net, 19 hits and and an even plus-minus rating in a fourth-line role.

  • Bjugstad recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Ducks. Bjugstad collected the secondary helper on a Nico Sturm goal in the first period. The 28-year-old Bjugstad missed eight games due to an upper-body injury, but struggled to get back in the lineup. Friday was his fourth game back from that absence. The Minnesota native has 16 points, 76 shots and 46 hits in 41 outings this season.

  • Bjugstad (upper body) has been cleared to play, but he won't be in the lineup for Friday's game versus LA, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The Wild likely don't want to insert Bjugstad into the lineup for the first contest of a back-to-back set following his eight-game absence, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him back in action Saturday against San Jose. He's picked up 15 points through 37 games this campaign.

  • Bjugstad (upper body) is expected to travel with the Wild for the team's upcoming four-game road trip, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports. Bjugstad has been skating on his own of late, but he has yet to return to practice with his teammates, a step he'll need to take before rejoining Minnesota's lineup. Still, it's safe to assume the 28-year-old forward will be ready to return at some point within the next week. He's notched 15 points in 37 contests this season.
