Wild's Pontus Aberg: Not qualified by Wild
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Late scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Non-existent Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Fires one shot on net
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (illness) is in the projected lineup for Tuesday's game against the Jets, NHL.com's Scott Billeck reports.

Aberg exited Sunday's 2-1 win over the Blues due to an illness, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. The 25-year-old Swede is expected to return to a bottom-six role Tuesday, skating with Ryan Donato and Joel Eriksson Ek on Minnesota's third line, but he should also see time on the man advantage as a member of the Wild's top power-play unit.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Departs Sunday with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg left Sunday's 2-1 win over St. Louis after falling ill, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Aberg logged 5:30 of ice time before leaving Sunday's game sick. Nothing at this point suggests the ailment will keep the Wild winger from suiting up for his team's next game Tuesday, but expect another update regarding Aberg's status to surface in the next day or so.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Shows frustration in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) had four PIM in a 4-0 loss to the Ducks on Tuesday.

Both of the minor penalties came near the end of the third period, after he slashed his former Ducks teammate Adam Henrique. Aberg has 22 points in 43 games between the Ducks and the Wild, but none of the boys in green could do anything against Ducks goalie Ryan Miller in this contest.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) has been taken off injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Aberg's activation was the final step in getting back onto the ice for Tuesday's matchup with Anaheim. The winger was stuck in a 12-game goal drought prior to getting hurt, while tallying three helpers, 19 shots and a concerning minus-11 rating. Aberg will likely start in a bottom-six role, but could earn more minutes if he can get out of his funk.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Expected back Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) is slated to return to the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Anaheim, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

In order to suit up, Aberg will need to be activated off injured reserve. The winger will likely slot into a bottom-six role out the gate, but could push for more minutes once he gets his legs back under him. Prior to getting hurt, the Swede had five productive outings for the Wild, in which he logged three helpers, five shots and five hits while averaging 12:46 of ice time.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) participated in warmups but won't play in Sunday's game versus the Blues, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Although the team said Aberg was activated from injured reserve, he technically stays on IR until he enters a game. Marcus Foligno will stay on the third line for the time being, and Aberg will look to shake this injury before Tuesday's contest versus the Ducks.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Lifted from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and is expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Blues, per the NHL's official media site.

Aberg has missed the last two weeks due to this lower-body condition. He'll likely return somewhere in the middle six and could find power-play time depending on coach Bruce Boudreau's decision. Aberg has three assists in five games with the Wild.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Could play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) could return to action Sunday against St. Louis, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Aberg has been sidelined for over two weeks due to a lower-body injury, but he was a full participant at Friday's morning skate, which was the first indication that he was likely nearing a return to the lineup. Another update on the 25-year-old winger's status should surface prior to puck drop against the Blues.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Set to skate Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) is expected to take part in Friday's morning skate, but won't be in the lineup against New Jersey.

Aberg hasn't been on the ice since suffering a lower-body injury in early February, so he is likely still a little bit away from slotting back into the lineup. In his five outings for the Wild, the Swede picked up three helpers, including two on the power play, while averaging 12:46 of ice time. Once cleared to return, the winger could push for a top-six role.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Shifted to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

Aberg was held out of Saturday's contest against Chicago and the injury appears to be more of an issue than initially expected. He'll miss at least the next few games with next Sunday's tilt against the Islanders being the earliest chance for him to return. After J.T. Brown was placed on waivers, the Wild should be making a few call-ups soon.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) will not draw into the lineup for Saturday's tilt against Chicago, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Aberg suffered an injury in Friday's game against Dallas and clearly isn't back to 100 percent yet. The 25-year-old Swede has notched three assists in five games with the Wild, his fourth NHL team in just three seasons. A timetable for his return has not yet been identified.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Iffy to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg (lower body) is questionable to play against the Blackhawks on Saturday.

Aberg is shaping up to be a game-time decision, though it's not unusual for official confirmation on an injured player's status to arrive ahead of warmups. The Swede has pitched in three helpers -- including two on the man advantage -- over five games since joining the Wild via a trade with the Ducks in mid-January.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Suffers lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg sustained a lower-body injury in Friday's game against the Stars.

According to Michael Russo of The Athletic, Aberg "appeared to pull something" in this contest, for which he was limited to 6:49 of ice time. Expect the Wild to make quick work out of reevaluating their latest acquisition since the team is scheduled to play the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Wild's Pontus Aberg: Dealt to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anaheim traded Aberg to the Wild in exchange for Justin Kloos on Wednesday.

Aberg is currently second on the Ducks with 11 goals in 37 games, so he should be able to help the Wild immediately by bringing some much-needed depth scoring to their lineup. The 25-year-old winger could make his Minnesota debut as soon as Thursday against his former team.

Ducks' Pontus Aberg: Rough game at home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aberg skated to a minus-3 rating and came up empty on four shots in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Oilers.

Aberg's mired in a seven-game point drought, but in fairness to the Swede, the Ducks have managed only 10 goals over that span. He's still a serviceable option in deep leagues due to his propensity to heat up on short notice.
