On January 2 the Wild placed Konopka on waivers prior to a home game against the Buffalo Sabers. The Wild activated Clayton Stoner in Konopka’s place and defeated the Sabers 4-1.
The last laugh was had by the Sabers when they claimed fan-favorite Zenon Konopka the day after the loss.
Farewell Zenon, you will be missed in Minnesota.
