According to coach Dean Evason, Hartman (undisclosed) will be available for Thursday's Game 3 against Vancouver, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports. Hartman exited Tuesday's Game 2 in the third period with an undisclosed injury, but it looks like whatever forced him from that contest wasn't overly serious. The 25-year-old winger has gone scoreless while averaging 11:49 of ice time through the first two games of the series.
Hartman (undisclosed) exited Tuesday's game versus the Canucks in the third period, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Hartman went into the boards in a tangle with Canucks center Elias Pettersson, who gave him a couple of punches after the play. It's unclear how exactly Hartman was hurt on the play, but he didn't return to the ice. The winger skate 10:19 in the contest and doled out three hits. His status for Thursday's Game 3 is uncertain.
Hartman notched an assist and three shots on goal in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Sharks. Hartman generated the primary helper on Ryan Suter's first-period tally. The 25-year-old winger has racked up six points in his last six games, a span in which the Wild have scored 26 goals as a team. Hartman reached the 20-point threshold for the fourth straight year -- he's added 109 shots, 69 PIM and 42 hits in 67 outings.
Hartman had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 7-1 win over Detroit. Hartman has four points in his last two games following a 13-game stretch in which he produced just one point. The rugged winger doesn't hold much value in most formats due to his limited scoring ability, and one nice two-game stretch doesn't change that.
Hartman had a pair of assists and three shots on goal Tuesday in a 5-4 win over Columbus. Hartman came into the night without a point in his last eight games before drawing assists on a pair of second-period goals by Mikko Koivu. The 25-year-old, already on his fourth NHL team, has seven goals and 16 points in 62 games in his first season with Minnesota.
