  • Wild's Mikko Koivu: Re-ups with Wild for two years

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/18/17) Koivu (foot) signed a two-year, $11 million contract extension with Minnesota on Monday.

    The Wild's long-time captain would have been an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming season, but he's now set to spend at least the next three campaigns in St. Paul. After taking a step back in 2014-15, Koivu has eclipsed the 50-point plateau in each of the last two seasons and skated to a whopping plus-27 rating in 2016-17, which was easily a new career high. The 34-year-old should continue to hold down Minnesota's top pivot position, flanked by some combination of Mikael Granlund, Zach Parise, Charlie Coyle and/or Nino Niederreiter.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Dealing with lace bite

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/18/17) Koivu will not suit up for Monday's matchup with Winnipeg to avoid his lace bite symptoms flaring up.

    While it can be quite painful -- causing a sharp pain throughout the foot -- lace bite is usually not serious and can correct itself with some rest. The Wild are back in action Thursday -- again against the Jets -- so the 34-year-old could be back in action soon. It should be noted, however, that at this point in his career, the 34-year-old could get away without taking part in any preseason contests and still be ready for Opening Night.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Man-advantage tally spoiled by early playoff exit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/17) Koivu delivered a power-play goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blues, though it wasn't enough, and the Wild have been eliminated from the playoffs.

    It was too little, too late for the Finnish captain, who empties his locker with the Wild failing to make it past the first round of the playoffs for the second straight year. Koivu only managed two points in the five-game series, and he was held in check completely in Games 2-4. It will be a contract year for Koivu in 2017-18, as he cashes out the balance of a seven-year, $47.25 million deal before becoming an unrestricted free agent.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Held out Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/17) Koivu (rest) will get the night off Thursday against Colorado, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    The Wild don't really have anything to play for, as they're locked in as the No. 2 team in the Central Division. As such, Minnesota will rest Koivu in order to ensure that he's ready to go for the playoffs.

    Wild's Mikko Koivu: Chippy play with regular season winding down

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/17) Koivu recorded four PIM with three shots and a block in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Hurricanes.

    Koivu has committed five penalties over the past three games, though they were all of the minor variety. Otherwise, the crafty pivot is heading for a strong finish to the regular season with four assists over the last five.
