The Olympics May Be In The Back Of Ryan Malone’s Mind After Signing A PTO With The Wild

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,

While there's no doubt Malone would love to prove himself in camp to the point he could sign an NHL two-way with the Wild or another team, this tryout appears to be intended to show Wild management he warrants an AHL deal.

While it's believed Pittsburgh and New Jersey has also shown interest in signing Malone to an AHL contract, Iowa is likely his preference because he could be closer to his two children and fiancee.

If he signs an AHL deal and not an NHL deal, Malone would be eligible to participate in the Winter Games in February in South Korea. Sources say he has discussed this possibility with USA Hockey in recent days.
