Wild creates room to make a deal

Fletcher has said he isn’t too fond of the rental market, so perhaps he’s looking to make an actual “hockey trade.” Some believe he has talked to Edmonton about forwards Nail Yakupov or injured Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. In January, he showed interest in Tampa Bay’s Jonathan Drouin.

“I still maintain our team is talented enough to make the playoffs whether we add a player or not,” Fletcher said Thursday, adding, “We’re not looking to sell. We expect to make the playoffs.”
