Wild's Brodziak Gets Two Points In Win

News: Kyle Brodziak doubled his season point total Thursday with a goal and an assist in a win over the Sabres.
Analysis: He'd managed two goals and zero assists in nine games coming in, so the helper was actually his first of the year. Kyle Brodziak doesn't chip in enough offense or secondary stats to be useful except in very deep leagues.

Analysis: Kyle Brodziak wasn't present for the morning skate after he was away from the team to witness the birth of his second child, but he'll make a separate flight to Ottawa and likely arrive at some point in the afternoon. Coach Mike Yeo indicated he planned on using Brodziak on Thursday, likely as the center for the Wild's fourth line.

News: Kyle Brodziak missed practice Wednesday to be with his expecting wife, but will join the Wild on their road trip, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Wild's Brodziak Keys Comeback With Two Goals

News: Kyle Brodziak's first two goals of the year brought the Wild back from a 3-1 third-period deficit Thursday against the Sharks, and they'd eventually go on to a 4-3 win in the shootout. He went plus-2 with four shots on the night.
Analysis: Just over five minutes after his first goal of the year brought the Wild within one, Kyle Brodziak struck with his second. They were also his first points of the year, as he'd been silenced in his first three outings.

Wild's Brodziak A Healthy Scratch

Wild's Brodziak Back At Practice Wednesday

News: Kyle Brodziak (back) took part in practice Wednesday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: It doesn't appear that the back issue that kept Kyle Brodziak out of commission the previous three days is anything that will impact his availability for the start of the regular season. He's on tap to open the campaign as the Wild's fourth-line center. Relative to other checking-line players, Brodziak won't offer as much fantasy value in the form of PIM and hit totals, but he does present more upside as a scorer.

Wild's Brodziak (Back) Not Practicing Tuesday

News: Kyle Brodziak (back) is not practicing Tuesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak continues to recover from a back ailment that's kept him out of action for the past three days. He missed the team's preseason opener against the Jets on Monday and his status is up in the air for Thursday's contest against Pittsburgh.

Wild's Brodziak Day-To-Day With Back Concern

News: Kyle Brodziak hasn't skated either of the last two days due to a back ailment, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The injury will keep Kyle Brodziak out of the Wild's preseason opener Monday against the Jets, but the team isn't classifying the ailment as a major concern. Brodziak is probably again ticketed for fourth-line duty with the Wild this season, after compiling eight goals, 16 assists, and 61 penalty minutes a year earlier.

Three Assists For Wild's Brodziak In Game 7

News: Kyle Brodziak picked up three assists in Thursday's Game 7 victory over the Wild.
Analysis: The Wild relied on a trio of unlikely heroes to carry them to the second round, as bottom-six forwards Kyle Brodziak, Nino Niederreiter and Dany Heatley all finished with three points on the evening. Brodziak's third assist came on a dump-off pass on a two-on-one to Niederreiter, who sent the puck over goalie Semyon Varlamov's left shoulder for the winning tally.

Wild's Brodziak (Undisclosed) Out Sunday

News: Kyle Brodziak (Undisclosed) will miss Sunday's season finale with a minor injury, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak apparently would have played if the game had more meaning, which suggests that he should be available for the Wild's first playoff game.

Wild's Brodziak Possibly Bothered By Injury

News: Kyle Brodziak left Saturday's practice due to unspecified discomfort, but he's still expected to pay in Sunday's season finale against the Predators, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Analysis: Wild coach Mike Yeo doesn't sound too worried, but the team still has minimal incentive to push Kyle Brodziak through an injury. The 29-year-old center ended an 11-game point drought Thursday night, potting a pair of pucks against the Blues to bring his total to eight for the season.

Wild's Brodziak Scores Two, Snaps Slump

News: Kyle Brodziak finally broke out of his slump Thursday, scoring a pair of goals and going plus-3 in a win over the Blues.
Analysis: He'd been held off the scoresheet in 11 straight games and hadn't found twine in more than a month, dating back to March 8. But Kyle Brodziak unexpectedly led all Wild forwards in ice time Thursday, and it paid off. Don't expect that to be the case consistently -- Thursday's 19:06 in ice time was his highest total since Jan. 11.

Wild's Brodziak Logs 14 PIM On Thursday

News: Kyle Brodziak was charged with 14 penalty minutes in Thursday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak has gone without a point in five straight games, so it was nice to see him make a fantasy impact in some capacity Thursday. Still, with Mikael Granlund and Mikko Koivu entrenched as the Wild's top two centers, it's tough to imagine Brodziak ascending into a scoring-friendly top-six role before the end of the season.

Wild's Brodziak Continuing Steady Play

News: Kyle Brodziak has four goals and 14 assists in 59 games this season.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak isn't scoring quite as much as he has in the past, and he'll probably continue to center one of the Wild's checking lines as the season continues.

Wild's Brodziak Collects Two Points

News: Kyle Brodziak scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's win over Phoenix.
Analysis: The third-period goal gave the Wild a 2-1 lead and turned out to be the game-winner, while the assist came on Justin Fontaine's empty-net hat-trick goal. After enduring a lengthy goal drought, Kyle Brodziak's scored twice and added an assist in the last four games.

Wild's Brodziak Ends 30-Game Goal Drought

News: Kyle Brodziak scored his third goal of the season, an empty net goal, in Thursday's win over Buffalo. He ended a streak of 30 games without a goal.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak isn't known for his offense, and his goal wasn't much of a streak breaker, but it at least ends a recent slump and hopefully gets him going. He's continued to get 14 or more minutes per game of ice time throughout the streak.

Wild's Brodziak Posts Assist

News: Kyle Brodziak had an assist in Wednesday's loss to Phoenix. He has two goals and seven points in 26 games.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak is a defensive-minded forward and his offense has improved only slightly from last season. He's not getting time on the power play after averaging more than a minute per game the past three seasons, which will limit his upside.

Wild's Brodziak Posts Assist

News: Kyle Brodziak had an assist in Thursday's shootout loss to the Kings. He also had three shots and three hits.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak began the season on the third line with Matt Cooke and Mikael Granlund. The third line could produce more offense than previous seasons, but Brodziak's expectations on offense should be tempered since he's more of a defensive-minded forward.

Wild's Brodziak Scores First Goal

News: Kyle Brodziak scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's win over Calgary.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak had just one point his first 11 games. The Wild have been shifting lines in an effort to jump start their offense, so Brodziak is at risk to see less ice time if this doesn't end his slump.

Wild's Brodziak Off To Slow Start

News: Kyle Brodziak has just one point and 11 shots on goal in ten games this season.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak has never been a prolific scorer, but he's struggled along with Minnesota's secondary lines. He'll need to get some more shots or be at risk of losing ice time.
