Well in one fight he ended up having to get 30 some stitches across his nose but it didn't hold him back in the next game from wanting to fight.
He was going to fight Dorsett one game but a CBJ coach yelled from the bench to desist according to Konopka.
Then against Chicago I believe it was Bollig he wanted to fight but Bollig wouldn't drop the gloves and instead Konopka received an interference penalty.
The times he did drop the gloves were not really at the best moments for the Wild so maybe the coaches have had a talk with him about that, but that's pure speculation on my part.
Edit: Also Rupper is in town now so that could affect things but not sure really which way. Will he take fights away from ZK or will ZK feed off of it? Are they a different weight class in the NHL fighting world?
