Fleischmann did not pass his physical with the Wild before camp, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Russo went on to report that the team is still doing tests on the 32-year-old forward, and it's unknown if he will participate in camp at all. For a player who was using camp as a tryout, missing time is a bad look for his chances to make the team.
Fleischmann inked a professional tryout agreement with the Wild on Monday, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.
Fleischmann joins Minnesota after spending last season playing for both the Canadiens and the Blackhawks. In 76 total contests, the journeyman notched 25 points and 32 PIM, not far off his normal level of production. The 32-year-old will likely be competing with fellow veteran Ryan Carter to secure the left wing spot on the Wild's fourth line, but don't count out rookie Mario Lucia who could swoop in and steal the job out from under both players.
Fleischmann scored his 12th goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's loss to Dallas.
While the Blackhawks lost for the third straight game, Fleischmann was able to put up his first multi-point outing in a Chicago uniform. The 31-year-old is currently skating on the third line and has put up three points (two goals) in six games since arriving in the Windy City. If he continues to see decent minutes, the former 27-goal-scorer could be worth looking at in deeper formats.
Fleischmann was traded to the Blackhawks along with Dale Weise on Friday. In return, the Canadiens have received Phillip Danault and a second-round draft pick in 2018.
Fleischmann is a rental player based on how he'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer. The 31-year-old comes with a cap hit of just $750,000, making him a bargain for the Blackhawks as general manager Stan Bowman is doing all he can to ensure that Lord Stanley stays with the team. Chicago's forward group is absolutely stacked, with Andrew Ladd reuniting with the Blackhawks, a precursor to further upgrades by the likes of Fleischmann and Weise. Fleischmann was only a modest offensive contributor, pitching in 10 goals and 10 assists in 57 games with the Habs, but the journeyman is about to have the best supporting cast of his career. As a result, he's a nice speculative pickup in fantasy pools.
Fleischmann scored a goal in Wednesday night's 4-3 win over Washington.
The goal was just Fleischmann's second in the past 27 games, but comes at the right time as the Canadiens look to move the 11-year veteran at the Feb. 29 trade deadline. He's recently been a healthy scratch, but the Habs will give him playing time in an effort to boost his trade value. Long-term, the Habs want to give minutes to players like Sven Andrighetto or Jacob De La Rose.
Fleischmann was healthy scratch in Wednesday night's 3-2 loss to Colorado.
With just four points in the last 32 games, Fleischmann may find himself in the press box more often while the Habs give some minutes to guys like Lucas Lessio and Jacob De La Rose.
