Description: The Minnesota Wild have traded James Sheppard to the San Jose Sharks for a third-round pick in 2013. TSN
Insight: Sheppard did not play at all last season because of a knee injury, and he is not expected to be ready for training camp. Although he is a former first-round pick of the Wild, Sheppard probably won't be a top-6 forward for the Sharks, even if he is healthy. The Sharks and the Wild have now made three separate trades this offseason.

Description: Minnesota Wild could potentially suspend injured Sheppard for ATV accident.
Insight: As if Sheppard's week wasn't bad enough in learning he could miss as much as four months of hockey, provisions within the CBA could allow the Wild to suspend him without pay for engaging in dangerous activity, possibly ending the former first-rounder's tenure in Minnesota.
