Minnesota Wild center James Sheppard broke his kneecap on Saturday night in an ATV accident which could help solidify a roster spot for Casey Wellman. According to the AP story, "The timing couldn't be much worse for Sheppard, a former first-round draft pick who has been slow to develop. The Wild signed veterans Matt Cullen (FSY) and John Madden (FSY) this summer to bolster the center position, and prospects Cody Almond (FSY) and Casey Wellman (FSY) are expected to get a chance to challenge for roster spots in training camp." The story was covered in USA Today, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, and Yahoo Sports.
