Greg Zanon practiced fully, as did Mike Lundin. Zanon hopes to be ready by the weekend, but it may be difficult for him to get into the lineup immediately if the Wild keeps winning and the defensemen keep playing great. Plus, he's missed a month and coach Mike Yeo said he's a "ways away." I'll write more about Zanon in Thursday's paper. One of his groin muscles tore completely off the bone. He painted us a picture, but I'll spare you those details.
Zanon holds no fantasy hockey value but is an excellent stay-at-home defender. Expect their shots allowed to decrease once he gets back into the lineup.
