Ilya Bryzgalov G MIN 5 Days

Bryzgalov gave up two goals in 12 shots for Minnesota in Thursday's exhibition loss to Pittsburgh.

Bryzgalov is with the Wild on a professional tryout offer. He was brought in with Josh Harding's broken foot and when Darcy Kuemper was unsigned. However, with Bryzgalov giving up four goals in his first two exhibition games, Kuemper under contract and Niklas Backstrom healthy, it seems unlikely Bryzgalov will make the Wild roster unless the team keeps three goalies.

Bryzgalov agreed to a professional tryout offer with the Wild on Wednesday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Bryzgalov will have a good chance at sticking with the Wild so long as restricted free agent Darcy Kuemper remains unsigned, which could possibility carry over until the start of the regular season. Though Bryzgalov has fallen on hard times since signing his much-maligned megadeal with the Flyers a few years ago, he was superb during his 12-game run with the Wild late last season, going 7-1-3 with a 2.12 GAA and three shutouts. If he does end up opening the season with the Wild, it would likely be in a backup capacity to Niklas Backstrom.

Minnesota has approached Bryzgalov about coming into training camp on a tryout, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

With Josh Harding suffering an ankle injury this summer and Darcy Kuemper unsigned and threatening to play overseas, the Wild may bring back Bryzgalov to serve as Josh Harding's backup.

The Pioneer Press is reporting that Ilya Bryzgalov will not return to the Minnesota Wild for the 2014-15 season.

Bryzgalov is eligible for unrestricted free agency and that's the way it looks things will progress as the Wild will go with Josh Harding, Niklas Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper as their three netminders. Stay tuned as some NHL team should take a shot at the former number one goalie in Phoenix and Philadelphia.

Ilya Bryzgalov is eligible for unrestricted free agency this July and it's unclear if he'll be back in Minnesota.

Still, he thoroughly enjoyed his time with the Wild. "I've been so happy here," he said. "I wish we can accomplish more. It is what it is. My personal experience was probably the best team I've played [for], best organization I've been [in]." Coach Mike Yeo was also pleased to have Bryzgalov in the organization. "I'm really proud of him, what he brought to our group," said Minnesota's bench boss. "You know we all heard stories about Bryz and all I can say is this guy was an unbelievable teammate and came into some really tough situations and he was incredibly bought in to our team."

Although he let in a questionable goal Friday night, Ilya Bryzgalov made a game-changing save on a Patrick Sharp breakaway.

With the game tied at two, Sharp deked on a breakaway but Bryzgalov made a tremendous pad save to keep the puck out of the net. From that point on, the Wild feeding off the energy of that save, dominated and ultimately scored twice to secure the victory. "At the time, you can call it a game-changing save," Zach Parise said. Bryzgalov was acquired as an insurance policy at the trade deadline. With three Minnesota goalies injured at the moment, it looks like his acquisition was a very astute move.
