I will be frank: I am not a morning person.

When I wake up in the morning, I prefer to see the sun already fully shining through my window, greeting me to another new day.

Valentine's Day is always a tricky holiday. From those parties in elementary school where you decorated your box and carefully selected each valentine for everyone to ensure no one got the wrong idea (because how embarrassing would it be if your crush actually found out you liked them). But adulthood doesn't make it any easier as you're forced to find the right restaurant, gift and candies to show your beau — or belle — how much you care.

Well, we here at the Wild are happy to help and relieve a little bit of the pressure. Not sure how to express your feelings? Let our Wild-themed Valentines do the work for you!

Maybe it's something in the water in western Alberta. Or maybe it's just the joys of photobombing.

Either way, a pair of pesky Canadians made sure they were a part of Feb. 6's pregame Sochi Send Off, which honored the players from both the Wild and the Nashville Predators who are participating in the 2014 Games.

The Minnesota Wild has reassigned goaltender Johan Gustafsson and center Erik Haula to the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Gustafsson was recalled earlier today for the sixth time this season and is 8-9-2 with a 2.86 goals-against average (GAA), a .908 save percentage (SV%) and one shutout in 21 games with Iowa this season. The 21-year-old has not appeared in an NHL game.

Haula has recorded four points (2-2=4) and a plus-5 rating in 25 games with Minnesota this season. The 5-foot-11, 192-pound native of Pori, Finland, recorded an assist in his NHL debut on Nov. 29 vs. Colorado and tallied his first career NHL goal against Dallas on Jan. 18. The 22-year-old has collected 17 points (9-8=17) in 24 games with Iowa this season.

Though it’s still up in the air, the blue line may be getting a Jared Spurgeon-sized boost tomorrow.

Head Coach Mike Yeo wouldn’t saw whether the defenseman was in or out tomorrow, but did admit there’s a “very good chance you could see him.”

When Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo was asked if he was ready to put Tuesday behind him this morning, he kept a straight face and cracked, “yeah, it’s Thursday.”
