Jason Zucker regrets calling out head coach Bruce Boudreau earlier this week.

"I'll start by first apologizing to Bruce. There was no reason for me to use his name in that quote in any way," Zucker said to the media on Saturday. "My intention with the quote was to state that everybody needs to be better ... 99.9% of that is on the players."

Zucker's comments were made after the Minnesota Wild lost 4-0 to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday, dropping their record to 1-6-0.
