Three more Wild players set to return Thursday

Defenseman Ian Cole and forwards Nick Bonino and Nico Sturm accompanied the team to California on Monday and although they didn't play against the Kings at Staples Center, they are expected to be back Thursday when the team's road trip continues in Anaheim.

Five players remain in the NHL's COVID protocols, with Jonas Brodin, Brad Hunt, Victor Rask, Carson Soucy and Cam Talbot unavailable.

Defensemen Matt Bartkowski and Louie Belpedio were two other additions to the blue line, along with Dakota Mermis.

Up front, winger Mats Zuccarello was back after missing the first 11 games following offseason arm surgery.

This is the second time this season backup goalie Kaapo Kahkonen has wound up in the starter's position unexpectedly.

Lakers superstar LeBron James displayed his boundless repertoire at Target Center on Tuesday.
