Just found out that our promising prospect Marat Khusnutdinov is out for at least 4 months due to the unfortunate shoulder injury during the 1st international game against the Finland team.

Here is a link to watch how this is happened:

4 months! That's tough. Stopping him from developing his hands, restricting skating, no playing either until next season 🙁

If there was ever a season to miss, this would be it. Lots of guys totally out of the game. If he's any kind of athlete he'll keep adding size and strength....but, yeah, tough. Amazing really how fast young athletes heal. Looking forward to seeing his game

Agreed. Hope, he will heal fast. What is amazing for me about him - extremely hard working and a very speedy player like flying. For the season 2020-21 he already played at 3 leagues and 3 different international tournaments for the team of Russia. Actually, out of our 9 Russian speaking prospects two of them Lodnia and Khusnutdinov will miss the rest of the season as well as our #1 draft of 2020 Marco Rossi.

The last 2 games for the Iowa Wild team against Chicago Wolves team were extremely tough one. We lost both games (2:10 and 1:4) by using 2 different goaltenders (Jones and Rumpel). But I am happy that we played and gain a valuable experience after playing against the best team in an AHL league. That team did not lose any games since the beginning of the season, which won all their 7 games in regulation. Interesting where is our other goalie- Baribeau? As more games we will have against Chicago team as better our team will be too.

I do post summaries of Iowa games in my summaries from time to time.  You can read about their latest game in the one I posted last night after the Sharks game.

Worrying results there.

They will add Baribeau and Addison which are going back to Iowa. Sincerely, wish to see more Addison here not because of his mustache but his intelligent play reminding me Brodin's play. I believe, our Iowa Wild team will play better soon. I think they have an intriguing potential in their team : Sokolov; Dumont; Dewar; Duhaime; Shaw, Addison as well as in their rookies Giroux; Beckman; Maser; Gordeev. So far leaders in goals are Dumont(4) and Sokolov(3) in 6 played games of this season.

I just looked for the Chicago Wolves stats and compared among entire AHL league stats. And my attention brought that this team(7-0-0) is the most productive so far (34 goals in 7 games) and interesting also, is the 1st team by having the most PIM (144) in the league. San Diego Gulls(7-1-0) is having a second place in goals(28 goals in 8 played games) among AHL teams. And  Iowa Wild team is on a second place in PIM (93) in 6 games among all teams.

Iowa Wild team will have tonight and tomorrow road games against Texas Stars team. Hope, they will find they way to win it. The last 2 games against Chicago Wolves we lost and also were able to score only 3 goals (2 in one; and 1 in the other one game).

Iowa Wild team will have next 2 games(Saturday and Sunday) against not the best team in the league Rockford IceHogs. Hope, that our team will be able to win both games and will start building some confidence, which is not superb so far. From the other news - Adam Beckman has returned to Spokane Chiefs,WHL. Because of his young age he allowed to play with Iowa Wild team only 7 games and had 2 goals and 1 assist during that time. Last season with Spokaine team he had 107 points (48 goals and 59 assists) in 63 games.

Congrats to our prospect 23 y.o. Brennan Menell who helped to Dinamo Minsk team (in 46 played games he had 38 points (5 goals;33 assists;+/- +7)) to reach Gagarin Cup playoffs. The team is playing now against one of the best KHL team(SKA, St.Petersburg) in Conference quarterfinals. Probably, they do not have a chance to pass that team. 1st game they lost already with a score 2:4. I think for the Minnesotan Brennan Menell it is already a superb achievement to be one of the best league defensemen as well as to get some unique KHL experience in one season. Probably, he will be available for us by the time of Stanley Cup playoffs season because their season is done earlier than ours.
