Penguins send Bjugstad to the Wild

Sarah McLellan of the Star-Tribune: The Minnesota Wild have acquired forward Nick Bjagstad from the Pittsburgh Penguins for a 2021 conditional seventh-round pick and the Penguins will retain half of Bjugstad’s salary.

Bjugstad attended Blaine High School and the University of Minnesota.

Sarah McLellan: The condition on the pick is if Bjugstad plays 70 games or records 35 points.

Chris Johnston: “This trade is an indication of how tough it’s going to be to move money during the 2020 NHL off-season: Pittsburgh may end up with nothing more than the $2.05M in extra cap room (plus $2.625M in actual salary saved) in exchange for Bjugstad.”

Coyotes wrap up first round of GM interviews

Craig Morgan: Source is saying that the first round of the Arizona Coyotes GM interviews ended yesterday. They will select the finalists for the second round of interviews.

Craig Morgan: Pierre McGuire is no longer a candidate and Shane Doan is not in the mix for the position. Steve Sullivan remaining is also a possibility.

Unfit Stars and Lightning

Mike Heika: Dallas Stars coach Rick Bowness said that Radek Faksa will be re-evaluated today.
