Havlat’s Game Improves

from Bruce Brothers of the Pioneer Press,

Onlookers have witnessed a blossoming in the play of Wild winger Martin Havlat.

One of those onlookers has the view from behind the Wild bench.

“A visible change,” coach Todd Richards said of Havlat’s play, noting that the shifty winger’s wheels are on fire.

“He can make a play at any moment,” he said. “There are a select few in the NHL that have that potential of making a play, and he did that in Phoenix by going coast to coast on the power play and put it off the pipe.”...

While the Wild have been climbing the NHL charts since an awful start, going 12-5-3 in their past 20 games, Havlat coincidentally has found the game so many expected from him after he signed a six-year contract worth $30 million. After scoring 77 points on 29 goals and 48 assists for the Chicago Blackhawks last season, he came on board expected to pick up the slack left by the departure of star winger Marian Gaborik.
