2010 NHL Draft Top-10: Where Are They Now?

With many players selected in the 2010 NHL draft reaching their 10th season in the NHL, we now have a much larger picture as to how their careers will turn out. The top-10 of the 2010 Draft was a particularly active group, with franchise faces, huge trades, and even a few busts littering these players. Related: 2015 NHL Draft Top 10: Where Are They Now?

‘The Call of the Wild’ Clip: Harrison Ford Befriends a Cartoon Dog

The Call of the Wild looks like a perfectly nice movie. Harrison Ford grew a beard and signed up to make a family film, which is surprising, since he seems like he’d rather…not do that sort of thing. But here he is, starring in Call of the Wild as John Thornton, who sets off on an adventure with a big dog named Buck. Buck is the real star of this movie, and he’s also completely digitally animated, which is just a little weird. Watch a new Call of the Wild clip below, where Harrison Ford meets B...

NHL roundup: Last-minute goal lifts Wild over Stars

Minnesota's Joel Eriksson Ek scored the second of his two goals with 25.7 seconds left in regulation, and the visiting Wild beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Friday night. After a big battle on the end boards behind Dallas goalie Ben Bishop, Eriksson Ek collected a miss by Jonas Brodin and wrapped the puck around past Bishop for the game-winning tally. Minnesota rebounded from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Stars for the third time in four meetings and win the season series.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Blushlighter Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Blushlighter ($6.49) is starting to hit the drugstore scene! I picked up two shades recently at Harmons and was pleasantly surprised to find them there since Wet n Wild, like most brands, has started migrating a lot of their seasonal and new releases onto their website directly. I mean, it can take several weeks or even months before a new item to launch in stores once Wet n Wild launches it on their website! It was nice seeing a few new displays pop up at Harmons. I picked t...

Jets Right to Be Angry About Officiating

The Winnipeg Jets and their fans are right to be rankled by rotten officiating that influenced the result of their latest game against the Minnesota Wild. Inconsistent Calls Abound, Confound The first play the Jets took issue with was a third-period non-call that led to the Wild’s game-tying goal. Defenseman Josh Morrissey took a clear hit from behind from Kevin Fiala, who saw the alternate captain’s numbers the whole way but drove him into the boards anyway. Kevin Fiala boarded Jo...

Staal Scores in Overtime to Give Wild 3-2 Win Over Jets

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Eric Staal poked home a rebound after a scramble in front of the Winnipeg goal on Saturday, sending the Minnesota Wild past the Jets 3-2 in overtime. Marcus Foligno and Luke Kunin also scored for Minnesota, which put up a season-high 44 shots on goal. Devan Dubynk stopped 19 shots for the Wild, who finally solved Winnipeg’s league-worst penalty-kill. Minnesota was 0-for-5 on the power-play in regulation before scoring on Blake Wheeler’s slashing penalty in the extra sessi...

Salvation Army Pushes For Last Minute Donations Amid Center Consolidation

RANCHO CORDOVA (CBS13) — If you’re looking for a tax break and donate to a good cause, you have just a few more hours to donate, and it might be harder to find a location to do so. The Salvation Army hopes the final day of 2019 will help boost them in terms of donations because they are down 10-15% for this year. Dejuan Matthews sorted through thousands of donations on Monday at the Salvation Army distribution center in Rancho Cordova. “Just seeing the amount of stuff people bring in here is ama...

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The 2010s will mark the decade when cinema as we know it started changing drastically. The movies themselves aren’t really changing, but the manner in which we get to see them is in the middle of a drastic overhaul. In some ways, it’s easier than ever to watch a movie. But along with that, it’s also gotten harder for movies to find their audience, let alone get made. Even so, the 2010s were full of movies that will stick with us for years...

The Wild’s Week: Kicking off the Weekend Right

The Minnesota Wild entered this past week on a roll, and, despite stumbling on the road with a 6-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday, they continue to impress. After a 3-2 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Xcel Energy Center ice on Tuesday, the Wild prevailed in a roller coaster, back-and-forth offensive explosion in a 6-5 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night heading into this weekend’s action.

A Closer Look At The Congressional Hearing on Human Rights in South Asia

Expectations on Capitol Hill were pretty low going into the House Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific and Nonproliferation’s historic hearing on “Human Rights in South Asia”. Previously, hearings on India have not been critical and the Kashmiri Muslim point of view has not been discussed. Chairman of the sub-committee Brad Sherman (D-CA) wasted no time setting the stage for where he wanted to go with this hearing, stating, ”the entire world is focused today on what is happening in Kashmir.”...

An Innovative Photographer Attached A Camera To A Remote-Controlled Car, Allowing Him To Capture Wild Animals

Over the last 11 years, Chris Bray has been taking pictures of animals using his toy car contraption while he takes guests on photography tours in Kenya. Bray purchased an ordinary remote-controlled car, stripped it of anything that could chewed or ripped off, leaving the chassis, then strapped a GoPro to the top of it. When a herd of animals has been sighted, Bray uses the toy car to approach the... Source

Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color Review & Swatches

I picked up a few shades of the new Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color Lipstick ($3.99) that launched a several weeks ago on the brand’s website. At $3.99 each these seemed like a good pick up as the creamy, lightweight formula that Wet n Wild promised sounded like something I’d love. Not to mention they tempted me with a creamy texture that had hydrating ingredients like Murumuru Seed Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Argan Oil, and Macadamia Oil. As someone with drier lips they sounded great! Th...

One for the Ages: Alexandre Daigle’s 2003-04 NHL Season

Alexandre Daigle gets an unfair bad rap. “All-time greatest draft bust”, “primadonna”, “completely lacked effort and motivation”. Strong words for any athlete, though maybe at the time that he broke into the NHL they were partially – maybe even mostly – true. But let us give Daigle his due. While he never became the next Jean Beliveau or Gilbert Perreault, nor did he become the superstar that the Ottawa Senators needed him to be (hindsight is an amazing thing these days), he would eventually...

Pool Outlook for Minnesota

The Central Division has had a reputation of being rather difficult in recent years and it seems like exceptional things have to happen for your team to succeed in this division or else you're just left behind.  The Minnesota Wild didn't have a star rookie and whatever player was getting on a hot streak, would end up getting hurt and the Wild, as competitive as they were, finished in last place [Author: opiatedsherpa]

Punchless Wild Ponder End to 6 Year Playoff Streak

As the Minnesota Wild crawled to the end of this fruitless season, there was no more fitting way to finish. Back-to-back blanks. The consecutive shutouts by Boston and Dallas gave the Wild a total of 11 games without a goal in 2018-19, pushing them to 27th in the NHL in scoring out of 31 teams. Their 210 goals were more than 100 fewer than league leader Tampa Bay, 40 fewer than they had in 2017-18 and their lowest total in five years. “If it’s not addressed, then we have problems,” said...
