Top Vinni Lettieri News

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Dishes pair of assists

    Lettieri notched two assists in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    Lettieri returned from a 15-game absence due to a lower-body injury and enjoyed his most productive game of the season. The 29-year-old filled in on the fourth line, and he'll likely remain there with Patrick Maroon (back) out 4-6 weeks after surgery. Lettieri has six points, 26 shots on net, 22 hits and a minus-5 rating through 20 appearances this season.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Activated off injured reserve

    Lettieri (lower body) has been removed from injured reserve ahead of Wednesday's matchup with Chicago, per the NHL media site.

    Lettieri is far from a lock to step into the lineup, especially having missed the previous 15 contests. If the center does get into the lineup, it could be at the expense of the recently recalled Adam Beckman. When he does play, the 29-year-old Lettieri has offered minimal offensive production, with just four points in 19 contests.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Won't play before All-Star Game

    Lettieri (lower body) isn't expected to start taking contact in practices until after the All-Star break, per Michael Russo of The Athletic.

    That safely rules Lettieri out for Minnesota's final game before the break, which will be a contest against Anaheim on Saturday. The Wild's schedule will resume Feb. 7 against the Blackhawks. Lettieri, who last played Dec. 30, has three goals, four points, 21 hits and 11 blocks in 19 contests this season. When Lettieri's healthy, he'll likely serve on the fourth line, though there's no guarantee he'll stay in the lineup or even remain in the NHL.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Moves to IR

    Lettieri (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    In a corresponding move, Samuel Walker was brought up from AHL Iowa. Lettieri, who sat out Sunday's 3-2 win over Winnipeg, will miss at least the next three games following his placement on the IR list. He has provided three goals, one assist, 26 shots on net and 21 hits in 19 contests this season

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Dealing with lower-body injury

    Lettieri didn't play Sunday against Winnipeg because of a lower-body injury.

    Lettieri was injured in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Jets. He has three goals, one assist, 26 shots on net and 21 hits in 19 games this season. Jake Lucchini took Lettieri's spot in the lineup Sunday.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Provides third goal of 2023-24

    Lettieri netted a goal in a 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday.

    Minnesota clawed back from a 3-0 deficit, and Lettieri contributed to that effort when he found the back of the net at 5:33 of the third period to tie the contest at 3-3. The Wild still lost, but at least it was a good showing from the 28-year-old, who needs to take advantage of every opportunity he can get. Lettieri, who entered Monday's action averaging 10:43 of ice time per game in 2023-24, has three goals and four points in 14 contests. He's also spent time with AHL Iowa this season, providing four goals and eight points in 10 games at that level, and even when he is with Minnesota, the forward sometimes serves as a healthy scratch.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Back with big club

    Lettieri was promoted from AHL Iowa on Wednesday.

    Although he's been promoted, at this point it isn't clear if Lettieri will draw into the lineup for Thursday's game against Calgary. He's picked up three points through 13 top-level appearances this year.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Sent back to minors

    Lettieri was assigned to AHL Iowa on Sunday.

    Lettieri sat as a healthy scratch in Sunday's 4-1 win over Chicago prior to returning to the minors. In 13 NHL contests this campaign, he has registered two goals, one assist, 15 shots on net and 12 hits.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Recalled from AHL

    Lettieri was summoned from AHL Iowa on Tuesday.

    Lettieri has produced two goals, 14 shots on net and 11 hits in 11 NHL appearances this season. He is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday versus St. Louis because of Ryan Hartman's two-game suspension.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Waived Thursday

    Lettieri was placed on waivers by Minnesota on Thursday, per Chris Johnston of The Athletic.

    Lettieri has two goals, 11 hits and two blocks in 11 contests this season. If he clears waivers, Minnesota might send him to AHL Iowa to help clear cap space for Alex Goligoski (lower body), who is believed to be close to being activated off the long-term injured reserve list.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: First career goal with Minnesota

    Lettieri recorded his first career goal as a member of the Wild in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

    Since being called up from the AHL on Oct. 22, Lettieri has had eight total shots on goal along with six hits to go with his goal. The fourth-line forward will continue to provide physical play -- he's also been getting opportunities on the power play recently.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Up with big club

    Lettieri was recalled from AHL Iowa on Sunday.

    Minnesota also returned Samuel Walker to the AHL on Sunday, so Lettieri will probably be in the lineup Tuesday against Edmonton. The 28-year-old Lettieri has one goal and two assists through four minor-league contests this season. He has picked up seven goals and 18 points in 83 career NHL appearances.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Signs two-year contract

    Lettieri inked a two-year, two-way contract with Minnesota on Saturday.

    Lettieri played in only one game for the Bruins last season with nary a point. He had a good season with AHL Providence, scoring 23 goals and adding 26 assists in 48 contests. Look for Lettieri to start the season in the minors barring a slew of injuries in training camp.

  • Bruins' Vinni Lettieri: Returned to AHL

    Lettieri was reassigned to AHL Providence on Monday.

    Lettieri posted one shot on goal and three hits in 9:50 of ice time during Sunday's 5-3 win over the Flyers. Boston may get some players back for Tuesday's contest against Washington after sitting Patrice Bergeron (undisclosed) and Taylor Hall (rest) on Sunday.

  • Bruins' Vinni Lettieri: Officially moves to AHL

    Lettieri was activated from long-term injured reserve and reassigned to AHL Providence on Monday, per CapFriendly.

  • Bruins' Vinni Lettieri: Surfaces on long-term IR

    Lettieri (lower body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    Lettieri was waived earlier in the day, so it's unclear if he's healthy or not. He's spent the minimum 24 days on the shelf but hasn't been out for 10 games to be eligible to return yet. Even when officially cleared, he'll likely report to AHL Providence.

  • Bruins' Vinni Lettieri: Hits waivers

    Lettieri (lower body) was waived by the Bruins on Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Lettieri, who's been sidelined with a lower-body injury since being recalled by the Bruins on Jan. 31, was presumably activated off injured reserve before hitting waivers. In the likely event he goes unclaimed, look for Lettieri to join AHL Providence.

  • Bruins' Vinni Lettieri: Lands on injured reserve

    Lettieri (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Lettieri was promoted to the NHL on Tuesday for the first time this season, but he subsequently suffered an injury in his first practice back. It's a tough break for the 27-year-old, who will likely head back to AHL Providence once he's recovered from the lower-body issue.
