  • Wild's Dakota Mermis: Puts up assist in loss

    Mermis notched an assist in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.

    Mermis saw just 9:30 of ice time, rotating on the third pairing in a seven-defensemen lineup. He contributed his first point in 15 games on a Jon Merrill tally in the first period. Mermis is up to seven points, 31 shots on net, 41 blocked shots, 25 PIM, 21 hits and a minus-2 rating over 33 appearances this season. While he's been a regular in the lineup, the 30-year-old is unlikely to produce enough offense to help most fantasy managers.

  • Wild's Dakota Mermis: Up from AHL

  • Wild's Dakota Mermis: Dropped to AHL

  • Wild's Dakota Mermis: Called up from minors

    Mermis was recalled from AHL Iowa on Monday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Mermis will flip places with forward Vinni Lettieri, who was sent down to the minors in a corresponding move. Mermis will serve as an emergency depth option after Zach Bogosian (upper body) was out versus Chicago on Sunday. Barring another injury concern on the blue line, Mermis is unlikely to get into the lineup during the Wild's four-game road trip.

  • Wild's Dakota Mermis: Heads to AHL

  • Wild's Dakota Mermis: Waived by Minnesota

    Mermis was waived Friday, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Mermis started off the season in fine form with two goals and four points in his first four games. But the 29-year-old blueliner couldn't keep it up -- he's picked up just one assist in his last eight games. Should Mermis pass through waivers, he will presumably be sent to AHL Iowa.

  • Wild's Dakota Mermis: Adds second goal in loss

    Mermis tallied a goal on his lone shot in Thursday's 6-2 loss to Philadelphia.

    Mermis got the Wild on the board in the third period, cleaning up a loose puck to cut the deficit to 3-1. The 29-year-old blueliner already set a new career high with two goals and four points through his first five games this season. While it's unlikely Mermis can keep up his current scoring pace, he could have some value in deeper leagues as he's seeing time on the power play with Jared Spurgeon (upper body) and Alex Goligoski (lower body) both on the long-term IR.

  • Wild's Dakota Mermis: Promoted Wednesday

    Mermis was called up by Minnesota on Wednesday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Mermis has five goals and 24 points in 46 games with AHL Iowa this season. The 29-year-old hasn't played for Minnesota in 2022-23, but he's recorded a goal and four points in 25 career NHL games. The Wild reportedly wanted another defenseman because they might have one or more blueliners on their roster who are dealing with an injury or an illness ahead of Thursday's game against Columbus. It's not yet clear which Wild players are questionable for Thursday's contest though.
