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.

The boys are back in town. And as they return to home ice for two games before the Olympic break, defenseman Jared Spurgeon will join them.

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.”

Wayne Gretzky is famously quoted for saying, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take.”

It’s not only a lesson in hockey, but in life. But then again, he might want to amend his statement in the case of Kyle Brodziak. Last night the centerman snapped a 30-game goalless skid, yet he didn’t even put the puck in the net.
