After a 10-day pause due to their COVID outbreak, the Wild will resume team activities on Friday morning. It’s unclear who actually will be on the ice for the 11 a.m. practice at Xcel Energy Center.

As of Thursday afternoon, the Wild still had 12 players on the COVID list: Nick Bjugstad, Nick Bonino, Jonas Brodin, Ian Cole, Joel Eriksson Ek, Brad Hunt, Marcus Johansson, Victor Rask, Carson Soucy, Jared Spurgeon, Nico Sturm and Cam Talbot.

While a player being added to the COVID list does not necessarily mean he has tested positive, general manager Bill Guerin confirmed earlier this week that some players on the team have tested positive and are symptomatic.

“Nothing too crazy,” Guerin said at the time. “Just some achiness, loss of taste and smell, things like that. The most important thing is everybody gets out on the other side OK.”

Some good news for the Wild on Thursday is Marcus Foligno was removed from the COVID list and will be able to practice with the team Friday. In theory, more players could be nearing the end of their stint on the COVID list.

To be cleared, a player has to be symptom-free for 10 days or, if he is asymptomatic, must be 10 days removed from their last positive test. Any player taken off the COVID list would be able to practice with the team immediately.

In total, the Wild have been forced to postpone six games due to the shutdown. They will return to action for a game on Tuesday night against the Kings in Los Angeles.
