The Minnesota Wild announced Sunday that they’re returning veteran winger Ivan Lodnia to the Niagara IceDogs for an overage season.
Lodnia comes off a 45-point (17-28–45) season with the IceDogs over just 41 games in 2018-19, giving him an even 200 points (79-121–200) over 231 career regular season games between Niagara and Erie.
The 20-year-old from Novi, Mich. was Minnesota’s third round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft before signing an entry-level contract with the Wild in December 2017. He appeared in six games with the AHL’s Iowa Wild following Niagara’s second round exit from the OHL Playoffs last spring.
Lodnia won an OHL Championship with the Erie Otters in 2017 and has recorded 20 points (6-14–20) over 46 career OHL playoff games.
