ST. PAUL -- After a couple of weeks limited to skating by himself, 21-year-old Wild forward Joel Eriksson Ek made a triumphant return to practice Wednesday. Wearing a baby-blue jersey to remind everyone on the ice he has not been cleared for contact, and participating in about half the drills, the young Swede made his presence felt at the end of the 45-minute session.
DULUTH -- As Minnesota Duluth closes out October with one more nonconference series — a national championship rematch at Notre Dame on Friday and Saturday — before the start of NCHC play next week, it appears coach Scott Sandelin has for the moment settled on a lineup. The one spot still up for grabs, however, is the fourth-line center role. There, junior Jade Miller and freshman Jesse Jacques have alternated over the past two weekends at Michigan Tech and at home against Maine.
BOSTON -- Clayton Kershaw took steps to prepare for his first career start at Fenway Park but didn't have it when he took the mound for Game 1 of the World Series. The Boston Red Sox roughed up the Los Angeles Dodgers ace for five runs in four-plus innings, pulling away late for an 8-4 win Tuesday night and a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
MINNEAPOLIS -- Timberwolves rookie guard Josh Okogie missed a couple of outside shots early in Monday’s win over Indiana. In college, that kind of start might have caused Okogie to shy away from jumpers for the rest of the night and attack the rim instead. The Wolves weren’t about to let that happen.
CHANHASSEN, Minn. — The Carver County Attorney's office has determined two sheriff's department officers who shot a 16-year-old boy outside his home in the western Twin Cities suburb of Chanhassen this past summer acted in self-defense. In the incident on July 13, Archer Amorosi, who according to a 34-page report on the incident had been suffering from mental illness, was shot multiple times after he charged one of the officers with a hatchet in one hand and what deputies thought was a handgun in the other hand.
STURGIS, S.D. -- Attendance was the second highest in the past 10 years at the 2018 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August in the Black Hills of South Dakota, according to official numbers released Thursday, Oct. 11. The City of Sturgis in reporting the numbers said there were 495,000 visitors at the 10-day event with a total economic impact to the state of $786 million. More than $580,000 was raised at various events for local nonprofit organizations.
MILBANK, S.D. – A 16-year-old boy from Milbank has been identified as the person who died Sunday morning after falling off the hood of a moving vehicle near the town in far northeast South Dakota.
HUGO, Minn. — It's not always that conservation and economic development go hand-in-hand. However, the new state director of The Conservation Fund in Minnesota said that's exactly what the nonprofit organization has as its goal: to blend the two together.
MILBANK, S.D. — A 16-year-old Milbank teenager died Sunday morning, Oct. 7, when he fell off the hood of a moving vehicle about five miles southeast of Milbank in far northeast South Dakota. The boy was riding on the hood of a 2001 Dodge Intrepid which was going westbound about 10:30 a.m. when his foot got caught on the front bumper and he was dragged under the vehicle, said the South Dakota Highway Patrol.
ST. PAUL -- Minnesotans now have a third choice when obtaining their driver’s license or identification card for identifying their gender. Instead of male or female, there is also now an “X” box to check in an apparent move to establish a gender-neutral ID. The option became available on Monday, Oct. 1, when the state also began offering the new Real ID.
