It's true! The Wild pivot has bulged the twine seven times in 12 games for Lev SKA and is tied with former NHLer Alexander Korolyuk. Now if he can just take that scoring touch to Minnesota. Well that's a bit hopeful don't you think?

Erik Christensen isn't likely to be back in Minnesota next season.
Christensen was dealt from the New York Rangers to the Wild in early February. But just like every team he's been with, he's been extremely inconsistent. He started off his time with the Wild with no points and a minus-13 rating in his first 15 games, then had six goals in 10 games with the Wild out of the playoffs. "When we're looking at guys that we want wearing a Minnesota Wild jersey, there's certain elements and there's certain characteristics," Yeo said. "I think one of them has to be a gamer -- a big-game player. You want guys that want to be on the ice when the game's on the line, you want guys that perform at the best when games are most meaningful."
