ILYA BRYZGALOV RUMORS

Report: Avalanche pass on Ilya Bryzgalov

The Colorado Avalanche had a rough day in Ottawa earlier this week. On the same day, the Avalanche lost both goaltender Semyon Varlamov and goaltender Reto Berra to injuries. Varlamov suffered a groin injury during the morning skate and Berra suffered a head/neck injury after a collision. With both goalies on the shelf for an undetermined amount of time, the Avs are a team who...

Ilya Bryzgalov Released By Minnesota Wild After Professional Tryout

Ilya Bryzgalov once famously said that he wasn’t afraid of anything except a “bear in the forest.” But now he’ll have to face the nerve-racking task of finding a new job. The enigmatic goaltender was released from his professional tryout by the Minnesota Wild on Monday, leaving Bryzgalov without a team heading toward the start of the regular season. After signing a nine-year...

During Monday night’s exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Xcel Energy Center […] The post Wild goalie...

Ilya Bryzgalov Beats Third-Period Boredom By Taking Selfies With Fans (Photos)

Minnesota Wild backup goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov defeated some boredom Monday night the same way teenage girls do — by taking some selfies. The always entertaining Bryz had some fun on the bench during the third period while Darcy Kuemper was busy between the pipes putting together a 32-save performance in the Wild’s 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Bryzgalov, whose in camp...

Wild ride for Bryzgalov ends with unlucky bounce

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Two bizarre bounces, and the wildest ride yet for Ilya Bryzgalov came to the cruelest of conclusions. Surrounded by a throng of reporters in front of his locker Tuesday night, Minnesota's infamously quirky goaltender spoke plainly, honestly. There were no hilariously short responses to questions, nothing to add to his portfolio of memorable sound bites in thick...

Minnesota Wild secures 7th seed in Stanley Cup Playoffs

And to think the Minnesota Wild were in jeopardy of missing the playoffs just two weeks ago. A gritty shootout victory against the Boston Bruins propelled the Wild to the 7th seed in the Western Conference late Tuesday evening and this squad looks capable of pulling a first round upset.

Minnesota Wild: Ilya Bryzgalov is the playoff goalie

Forgive me for completely taking a 180 degree turn when it comes to my thoughts on the Minnesota Wild’s goaltending situation. Just three weeks ago, I was exclaiming that Darcy Kuemper has to be the guy moving forward. The most recent piece I posted claimed that if Josh Harding is healthy he deserves the nod in the playoffs. Today, I’m going to say something that just over a...

Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov eggs on taunting Winnipeg Jets fans

When it was rumored the Phoenix Coyotes were going to move to Winnipeg, then Coyotes goalie Ilya Bryzgalov made it known that he wanted nothing to do with Winnipeg. The fans let him hear it in his first game back in Winnipeg and Bryzgalov egged them on, asking for more. It should be noted that he did this during the play while the puck was in his zone because he is after all, Ilya...

WATCH: Wild goalie makes fan's night by giving her stick

YouTube Prior to Wednesday’s tilt against the Canucks, Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov handed his stick to a young fan waiting at the glass by the end of the bench.  Bryzgalov was just traded to Minnesota from Edmonton in early March.  Things like this go a long way to getting your new fans on your side. I think this is where I say, “this is what it’s all about people.”

WATCH: Ilya Bryzgalov throws stick in disgust

Some days aren't the best for Edmonton Oilers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. Sure, he'll make combined $10 million this season between his bought out Philadelphia Flyer contract and the one he's earning now in Edmonton, and he's mostly played well with the Oil (a .916 save percentage in nine games despite a losing record). But some days, your old team comes back from...
