Wild winger Rem Pitlick was a bright spot for the team amid some early season successes.
Since Pitlick’s waiver during the training camp, he has scored 10 points (5 goals, 5 assists) in 16 games with the Wild. His most memorable moment came last month when he scored a hat trick in defeating the Seattle Kraken on November 13th.
But as productive as 24-year-old Pitlick has been this season, he has spent the last few weeks watching from the press box as a healthy scratch. The length of the absence has been extended with Wild postponing some games over the past week as the number of COVID cases among the Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers rises
« I am human, » said Pitlick. « I want to play. I leave it at that. »
That said, Pitlick is no stranger to sitting outside for long periods of time. He was a member of the Nashville Predators’ taxi team last season, which meant he had to be ready at all times, even if he rarely played in real games.
« This is something I’m used to, » said Pitlick. “I don’t want to make it a habit. But I’m used to it. I will be ready. »
If everything goes according to plan, Pitlick will return to the line-up on Monday night when the Wild take on the Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center. When asked what the coaching staff had told him about his game, Pitlick replied, “To be honest, I’d rather not comment. We’ll keep that internally. »
While he wouldn’t go into the subject in detail, Pitlick did mention how the coaching staff would like him to approach some areas of his game differently. Lately he’s been a little marginalized with his game.
« I’ve just kept evolving as a player, » said Pitlick. “I remain myself. I am convinced of some of the things that I have done. I will keep bringing these things with me. But I also bring the things that the coaching staff told me and showed me in the video. »
It will be interesting to see how Pitlick does things when the savages take on the stars. He knows exactly what the coaching staff want from him. Now it’s up to him to prove himself again.
« We all have views in life, » added Pitlick. “That makes life cool. There are so many different ways to look at it. They see it in a certain way. I’ll try to integrate it into my game and still keep a feeling for myself and how I see the game. »
