Wild is interested in Huselius

From Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

It has been confirmed to me by Kristian Huselius’ agent, Don Meehan, that the Wild is pursuing the free-agent left wing and the two sides will speak again Wednesday. Huselius has got a ton of skill and was nearly traded to Minnesota in 2005-06.

Read more from Russo here.

Huselius could be a nice fit in Minnesota. The talented winger won't cost as much as the top-tier free agents, but can be very productive. He has soft hands, can skate and would probably flourish without the pressure of Calgary or the coaching of Mike Keenan (who he has never really gotten along with).

The Wild has been very pragmatic in free agency so far and has, in my opinion, been one of the "winners" so far with their transactions.

Ballhype: hype it up!
