Relieved Wild welcome Kaprizov back after summer in Russia

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Last summer, a long contract negotiation between Kirill Kaprizov and the Minnesota Wild - plus the complication of international travel and COVID-19 protocols - put the star left wing's arrival for the start of training camp in question.

That process turned out to be a snap compared to this year.

Kaprizov's return to his native Russia after the Wild were ousted from the playoffs last spring led to a stressful offseason for the entire organization, as the franchise player ran into several roadblocks in his attempt to travel back to the U.S.
