Wild's Brodziak Set To Return

News: Kyle Brodziak (upper body) is slated to play Thursday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak, who last suited up on March 23, checks back into the Wild lineup with 20 points and 45 PIM in 67 games to date, numbers that limit his fantasy utility to deeper formats. He's in line to center the team's fourth line Thursday, flanked by wingers Ryan Carter and Jordan Schroeder.

Wild's Brodziak Cleared To Play

News: Kyle Brodziak (upper body) has been cleared to play, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Although Kyle Brodziak has received medical clearance, it's not entirely certain that he'll be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers. He missed each of the last three games due to some tightness in his upper body.

Wild's Brodziak Out Friday

News: Kyle Brodziak (upper body) will not play Friday against the Flames.
Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo has decided to stick with the same lineup Friday that he used Tuesday against the Islanders, meaning that Kyle Brodziak will sit a second straight game due to the injury. It's not clear how far along he is in his recovery from the injury, so he'll retain a day-to-day listing for the time being.

Wild's Brodziak Out Tuesday

News: Kyle Brodziak will not play Tuesday against the Islanders due to upper-body tightness.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak was hurt in a fight in Monday's win over the Maple Leafs, but should be ready to play ahead of Friday's tilt with the Flames. Jordan Schroeder will take his place after being a healthy scratch for eight consecutive games.

Wild's Brodziak Picks Up Two Points

News: Kyle Brodziak notched a goal, an assist and a plus-3 rating Thursday in a win over the Predators.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak had managed all of three points in his prior 17 games, so this qualifies as an outlier. His middling PIM and hit totals give him some value in super-deep leagues, but that's about it.

Wild's Brodziak Scores In Win

News: Kyle Brodziak finished with a goal, a plus-1 rating, and five shots in Monday's 5-3 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: The goal ends an eight game slump without a point for Kyle Brodziak. The 30-year-old only has 13 points on the season, and has limited value for fantasy owners except in the deepest of formats.

Wild's Broadziak Chips In Two Points

News: Broadziak scored a shorthanded goal, added an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 7-0 whipping of the Sabres.
Analysis: A sparkling fantasy line, but not one we can expect to see very often from Kyle Brodziak, who's much more grinder than scorer at this stage in his career.

Wild's Brodziak Assists Twice Monday

News: Kyle Brodziak provided two assists in Monday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Analysis: The checking line center stepped up offensively with Mikael Granlund (wrist) out following surgery, gathering secondary helpers on two of the Wild's three second-period tallies. While Granlund's injury could have a domino effect that results in more minutes being available, Kyle Brodziak probably won't be a direct replacement for Granlund on a scoring line. His fantasy value remains primarily relegated to the deepest of formats.

Wild's Brodziak A Healthy Scratch

News: Kyle Brodziak was a healthy scratch in Thursday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak had a two-point game on Nov. 13 but was a minus-2 the next two games. He may be a frequent healthy scratch as the Wild's defensive-minded center on a last line.

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.

Wild's Brodziak Back In Thursday

News: Kyle Brodziak (paternity) is set to join the Wild in Ottawa in time for Thursday's game, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
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.

Wild's Brodziak Expected To Play Thursday

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.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak shouldn't miss anything unless something unexpected comes up. He should play Thursday against the Canadiens as the team embarks on a three-game road trip.

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 Gets Playing Time

News: Kyle Brodziak had one shot on goal, three hits and four blocks in 14 minutes of ice time in Tuesday's win over Boston.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak had been a healthy scratch for five consecutrive games, but will get ice time with Erik Haula out with a head injury.

Wild's Brodziak A Healthy Scratch Again

News: Kyle Brodziak was a healthy scratch in Saturday's win over Tampa Bay. He's been a healthy scratch in four consecutive games.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak looks stuck on the bench in favor of Ryan Carter at this point.

Wild's Brodziak A Healthy Scratch

News: Kyle Brodziak was a healthy scratch in Friday's loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak typically won't be the odd man out, but the Wild are healthy and want to get other players ice time early in the year.

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 To Sit Brodziak On Monday

News: Kyle Brodziak will be a healthy scratch Monday against the Avs, according to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Analysis: With the Wild down 2-0 in their first-round playoff series, Kyle Brodziak and Stephane Veilleux will give way to Justin Fontaine and Dany Heatley in Monday's lineup.

Wild's Brodziak To Return Against Denver

News: Kyle Brodziak practiced Tuesday and is expected to play in Game 1 of the Wild's first-round playoff series against Colorado, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

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.
