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.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak will likely center the third line with Matt Cooke and Nino Niederreiter. He missed the Wild's final regular season game with an undisclosed injury.

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.

Miserable Game For Wild's Brodziak

News: Kyle Brodziak was invisible in Thursday's shootout win over Chicago. In 19:30 of ice time, he failed to record a point, a shot on goal or a hit, and won just five of 18 face-offs.
Analysis: If it's any excuse, he did take a skate to the face two days earlier, but most NHL players will tell you that's not much of an excuse. Kyle Brodziak has had a surprisingly productive season, with 22 goals and 22 assists, though he's burdened by a career-worst minus-15 rating.

Wild's Brodziak Returns After Skate to Face

News: Kyle Brodziak, who took a skate to the face, returned to action Tuesday.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak left Tuesday's game after getting slashed in the face with a skate. No word on whether he required stitches. He returned a bit later wearing a visor.

Wild's Brodziak Takes Skate to the Face

News: Kyle Brodziak got hit in the face with a skate Tuesday, the Wild's official site reports.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak was bleeding and had to be helped to the locker room. He likely won't return.

Wild's Brodziak Providing Steady Offense

News: Kyle Brodziak's goal Thursday against Florida gave him points in six of his last seven games. He has four goals and four assists in that span.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak's been increasingly involved offensively for the Wild of late, making some really nice plays with the puck and always finding himself around the goal at key moments. He's sitting on a career-high 21 goals and 43 points.

Wild's Brodziak: Four-Game Scoring Streak

News: Kyle Brodziak's point streak stands at four games and seven points (two goals, five assists) after picking up an assist in Saturday's loss to the Sabres.
Analysis: He's the hottest Minny player right now. And his 41 points are second to only Dany Heatley on the Wild scoring list. OK, so that's a bit pathetic given the leader has only 47 points. But Kyle Brodziak is delivering solid late-season value off the wire. Use him while he's streaking.

Goal, Assist For Wild's Brodziak

News: Kyle Brodziak found the empty net for his 19th goal of the season Monday against Vancouver. He also had an assist.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak is having a career year, and is on the verge of his first 20-goal and 40-point season. He also has 62 penalty minutes, but his minus-16 rating is a concern. However, as a 27-year-old player, his upside at this point is rather limited.

Wild Ink Brodziak To Three-Year Deal

News: Kyle Brodziak has signed a three-year contract extension with the Wild worth roughly $8.5 million, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak was slated to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He's been particularly durable for the Wild in his career, missing just two games out of 223 with Minnesota.

Brutal Game For Wild's Brodziak

News: Kyle Brodziak went minus-4 with one shot on goal and lost seven of eight face-offs in Thursday's loss to Vancouver.
Analysis: Well, you can't play much worse than that as a center. Kyle Brodziak had actually been productive of late, as he posted a six-game points streak in the latter half of January and early February.

Brodziak On Scoresheet For Wild

News: Kyle Brodziak notched his third point in four games with an assist in Thursday's loss to Toronto.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak has more points than Devin Setoguchi and just one fewer goal than Dany Heatley. Brodziak's numbers are not gaudy, with 23 points in 47 games, but he does have 43 penalty minutes. He could make a run at 20 goals, but won't provide your squad with anything more than secondary scoring in deeper leagues that reward penalty minutes.

Wild's Brodziak Scores Two Goals

News: Kyle Brodziak scored two goals in Saturday's win over Phoenix.
Analysis: He has ten goals in 27 games, compared to a career high 16 goals previously in a season. Kyle Brodziak has been a defensive-minded forward, so his early hot streak has come with skepticism. However, it may be time to think this can continue amid the Wild's resurgence.

Wild's Brodziak Won't Be Suspended For Game Misconduct

News: Kyle Brodziak will not face supplemental discipline for his questionable boarding major and game misconduct in Thursday's win over the Kings, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak was ejected early in the second period for the boarding call on Anze Kopitar, but it doesn't look like he'll miss any more time.
