According to Adrian Dater at All Things Avs:
Darcy Tucker escaped suspension. From my league sources, Tucker will not be suspended for his clipping incident against Minnesota’s Nick Schultz Thursday night.
from Russo’s Rants,
Late in the second period, Tucker and defenseman Nick Schultz clashed deep in the Wild’s zone. After the pushing match, the two lined up next to each other and Tucker began screaming at him as the Wild was on a penalty kill. Schultz was called off the ice on a line change and as he skated by, Tucker continued barking at him.
Then, 6:33 into the third, in a despicable act but one he’s done often in his career, Tucker came in way late on Schultz, bent down and went right for the knees. He was called for clipping.
I got Schultz alone in the locker room, and he was still fuming. Here’s his comments:
“My concern is at the end of the second, he tells me he’s going to come and take out my knees, and then he actually does it. It says everything you need to know about that guy.
From the Pioneer Press,
Wild defenseman Nick Schultz underwent a successful appendectomy Monday evening, the Wild announced.
“Schultz is resting comfortably and his status will be updated when more information becomes available,” the Wild said in a statement.
The Wild were already short in defensemen, having lost Kurtis Foster to a broken left femur suffered on March 19.

Defenseman Nick Schultz has signed a six-year, $21 million extension, the longest contract in Wild history. The particulars will be up later.
