Jacob Dowell can't be blamed if he appears distracted during Minnesota's training camp.

His father and brother are both in the final stages of Huntington's disease, which is a neurological disorder that debilitates a person physically and cognitively until they die. It usually lasts over the course of a decade or more. There's a 50-50 chance that Jacob could have inherited the same gene and he plans to have a blood test in a year or two to determine what comes next. Dowell, who has a one-way contract this year, has a good chance to stick with the Wild out of training camp. Hopefully, he can continue to play. We wish him and his family the best.
