    The leap left behind, Marcus Foligno seeks more in Minnesota

    Marcus Foligno has left the leap behind in Buffalo. That doesn't mean his offensive production can't or won't continue to rise in Minnesota. Coming off a career-high 13 goals for the Sabres last season, the 25-year-old was acquired by the Wild to bring some needed grit and strength to the left wing position on the third or fourth line.

    For the first time since he was sidelined -- and later hospitalized -- due to an illness that resulted from concussion medications, Buffalo Sabres forward Kyle Okposo has returned to the ice. The 29-year-old All-Star was absent starting late in March, when then-Buffalo coach Dan Bylsma said he was "very concerned" for Okposo's health, but the veteran was back to skating and shooting in Minnesota's Da Beauty League on Wednesday. A "glorified pickup game" for NHL and collegiate players, Da Beauty League saw Okposo suit up at Braemar Ice Arena near his hometown St. Paul, and according to NHL.com's Jessi Pierce, he was "speeding down the ice with ease" and "even put a shot on net his first shift."
