Morning Skate Report: February 1
Vatanen
By Kyle Shohara

It appears Viktor Fasth will get the nod in goal tonight against the Minnesota Wild. The 30-year-old Swedish netminder was the first of the two goaltenders to exit the ice during today’s morning skate.

VATANEN’S DEBUT?

’s defensive partner during today’s skate was, once again, Sami Vatanen. Whether that’s a sign the 5-foot-10 Vatanen appears in his first career NHL game tonight remains to be seen.

While head coach Bruce Boudreau didn’t explicitly say Vatanen’s debut would come tonight, he said he’s eager to see what the Finnish defenseman can bring to the big club.

“I watched him play in Norfolk and some nights he was outstanding. Other nights, he was average. So if it’s like the rest of the players, not only in Norfolk but in the American [Hockey] League, they pick their game up when they get to the NHL to another level. It’ll be interesting to see, when he plays, what it’s going to be like.

BOUDREAU ON THE WILD
“Quite honestly, I haven’t seen much of them. I know they’re dangerous. You just look at [Pierre-Marc] Bouchard’s goal the other day. They can get secondary scoring. [Matt] Cullen has always been a pain. Any time you’ve got a Suter and a Parise…I played against Zach from the American league until he was in Jersey when we’d play him four times a year. He’s a perfect hockey player. He works never-ending, he’s got talent and he can see the ice, and he’s not small; he’s short. He wins battles from his tenacity.”
