The Minnesota Wild will have two fan favorites missing from the lineup next year.
Since his rookie season in 2002-2003, Pierre-Marc Bouchard had donned the 96 jersey in Minnesota Wild Red, Green and White. Bouchard scored 106 goals and helped out on 246 assists for a total of 347 points. He played only ten minutes in the 2009-2010 season while he was recovering from a head injury that he struggled to recover from.
The bearded bruiser, Cal Clutterbuck, was dealt to the New York Islanders for Nino Niederreiter and the 70th pick in the draft. Clutterbuck was a fan favorite for his off the ice involvement in the community and his bruising attitude and hustle on the ice. Clutterbuck joined the Wild in the 2007-2008 season and racked up 110 points (62 goals) and 337 penalty minutes in five seasons and two games, he played two games his rookie year.
