  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Returning to lineup

    Hartman will return to the lineup Saturday against Buffalo after sitting as a healthy scratch Thursday versus the Flyers, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    After racking up 34 goals and 65 points through 82 games last season, Hartman has struggled with penalties and injuries this year -- he's been limited to 14 points while piling up 47 PIM through 25 contests this campaign. We'll see if Thursday's scratch will light a fire under Hartman, who will likely slot into a bottom-six role versus the Sabres.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Won't play Thursday

    Hartman will be benched for Thursday's matchup with the Flyers. Coach Dean Evason told reporters, "Ryan Hartman will not play tonight. He took another ill-advised penalty last game. He will sit tonight," Kevin Falness of the Wild's official site reports.

    Hartman has racked up 21 PIM in his last three games, so his benching certainly shouldn't come as a surprise. The 28-year-old winger is mired in an eight-game goal drought during which he recorded two assists, 23 shots and seven hits. Without Hartman in the lineup, Jordan Greenway or Marcu Foligno could be elevated to a second-line role.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Generates assist Saturday

    Hartman provided an assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Hartman snapped a three-game point drought when he set up a Frederick Gaudreau goal in the second period. Through 21 contests this season, Hartman has supplied 13 points, 48 shots on net, 22 hits, 11 blocked shots, 26 PIM and a plus-3 rating. The 28-year-old is still in a middle-six role, and he's got enough offense and grit to get a look from fantasy managers in deeper formats.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Shows of sweet mitts in OT loss

    Hartman had a goal and an assist in a 6-5 overtime loss to the Sabres on Saturday.

    His goal showed off his sweet mitts. Late in the second period, Hartman made a mid-air deflection of a cross-ice pass from Frederick Gaudreau at the side of the net. The winger is heating up with a three-game, five-point streak that includes three goals, and now sits with five goals and seven assists in 17 games this season.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Registers assist Wednesday

    Hartman recorded an assist in a 5-1 win against Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

    Hartman has four goals and 10 points in 16 contests this season. He's contributed at least a point in three of his last four games. Although Hartman's doing well right now, it's worth noting that the 28-year-old entered the game averaging 15:00 of ice time, which is down from 18:11 in 2021-22. He finished last season with 34 goals and 65 points in 82 contests.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Takes advantage of miscues

    Hartman scored two goals on five shots during a 5-2 victory over the host Blues on Saturday.

    Hartman has three goals in six games since returning to the lineup and converted both second-period goals off misplays by goalie Jordan Binnington. The 28-year-old right winger missed 20 games with an upper-body injury. Hartman, who shared the team lead with five shots on goal against the Blues, earned his first multi-goal game since collecting a pair of goals against the Oilers on April 12.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Deposits empty-netter

    Hartman scored an empty-net goal on two shots, went plus-2 and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Wild.

    The empty-netter was Hartman's first point in two games since he returned from a six-week absence with an upper-body injury. The 28-year-old has settled into a middle-six role after beginning the year with top-six minutes prior to his injury. He's at two goals, four helpers, 26 shots on net, 14 hits, 18 PIM and a plus-2 rating in 11 contests overall, but the reduced role hurts his fantasy stock.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Will not play Friday

    Hartman (upper body) will not play against Chicago on Friday, Sarah McLellan of The Star-Tribune reports

    Hartman has not played since Oct. 30, a span of 20 games. The talented winger had 34 goals and 65 points last season with 239 shots on goal and 95 PIM. He started the season with a goal and five points in nine games before his injury. He could return to the lineup Sunday against Ottawa.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Close to return

    Hartman (upper body) is close to returning, Wild radio broadcaster Kevin Falness reports.

    Hartman has been out since Nov. 1, but it appears his absence is drawing to a close. He'll need to be activated from injured reserve ahead of his return, but it sounds like it's just a matter of him feeling ready to go before he's back in the lineup.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Starts skating

    Hartman (upper body) has started skating again but will not go on the four-game road trip next week, according to Michael Russo of The Athletic.

    While it is good news that Hartman has resumed skating, he has been out of action since Oct. 30 and there is not timetable for his return. He has a goal and five points in nine games after career bests in goals (34) and assists (31) last season.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Goes on injured reserve

    Hartman (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Hartman was already ruled out for the next two games versus the Kraken and the Kings, so this is more of a procedural move to free up a roster spot. The 28-year-old may return during the Wild's three-game road trip next week, with Nov. 9 versus the Ducks or Nov. 11 versus the Kraken not yet ruled out.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Set for at least two-game absence

    Hartman (upper body) has been ruled out for Minnesota's next two games, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Wednesday.

    Hartman might join the Wild for their upcoming three-game road trip but will be sidelined for at least that first road matchup with Los Angeles on Tuesday. The 28-year-old winger has just one goal in nine matches this season and is already behind the pace to match his 34-goal performance last year.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Unavailable against Montreal

    Hartman (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus the Canadiens, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Hartman will miss at least one contest with the upper-body injury he suffered while fighting Chicago's Jarred Tinordi during Sunday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks. With Hartman on the shelf, look for Steven Fogarty to draw into the lineup against Montreal.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Exits Sunday's game

    Hartman (upper body) will not return to Sunday's game against Chicago.

    Hartman dropped the gloves with Jarred Tinordi and immediately went back to the locker room after appearing to injure his shoulder. The 28-year-old logged one assist and 9:12 of ice time before leaving the game. Minnesota's next game is Tuesday against Montreal.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Practices on top line Wednesday

    Hartman practiced alongside Kirill Kaprizov and Mats Zuccarello on Wednesday, per Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

    That's a step up for Hartman, who played on the third line with Marcus Foligno and Joel Eriksson Ek during Monday's 6-3 loss to Colorado. Hartman has gotten off to a lackluster start with an assist and minus-5 rating in three games this season, but the Wild as a whole have struggled. He should get going eventually, and playing on the top line certainly helps.
