Aberg (undisclosed) did not receive a qualifying offer from the Wild on Tuesday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports. Aberg would occasionally sit as a healthy scratch last season, but he found his way into the lineup more often than not and ultimately posted 25 points in 59 games between the Ducks and Wild. Only six of those points came in 22 appearances with Minnesota, however, and the Wild didn't see enough from the Swede to justify keeping him in the organization's plans moving forward.
Aberg (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Stars, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports. Aberg was a healthy scratch in the last four games, but coach Bruce Boudreau said Aberg would play in this contest so his absence is likely injury-related. The 25-year-old will finish this season with 25 points over 59 games between the Ducks and Wild.
Aberg logged 13:24 of ice time and was a minus-1 in Saturday's 5-1 loss to Carolina. Since coming over from Anaheim on Jan. 17, Aberg has produced just six points in 21 games. The 25-year-old has even seen an average of 2:01 of power-play time for the Wild, but has only produced three power-play points. With just 25 points in 58 games, it's safe to leave Aberg on waivers for the rest of the season.
Aberg logged 12:42 of ice time and fired three shots on net in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Nashville. The 25-year-old has been terrible since returning from illness, as he's been held pointless in his last seven games. Following a tough display, Aberg is now stagnated at 22 points in 49 games this campaign. One positive could be that Aberg received 1:49 of power-play ice time Sunday, which could lead to more scoring opportunities going forward.
Aberg (illness) logged 14:25 of ice time and fired a shot on goal in Tuesday's win over the Jets. Aberg got sick during Sunday's game versus the Blues and didn't return, but he was able to shake that issue before this matchup. Despite linemates Ryan Donato and Joel Eriksson Ek combining for three points, Aberg extended his pointless streak to six games.
