Minnesota Wild

central

Luke Kunin scored a goal for the Wild in their 4-2 win over the Panthers on Tuesday. He was a plus one with a goal on four SOG in 16:34 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: In his third partial season with the wild Kunin age 22, still has some learning to do. At this point in his career is not relevant especially because he does not see any time on the powerplay unit. Kunin could still make a name for himself in the coming years after being a first-round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Jason Zucker had two points in the Wild’s 4-2 win over the Panthers on Tuesday. He was a plus two with a goal, an assist and two SOG in 15:55 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Zucker is in the midst of a good season and should be in most starting lineups. He now has ten goals and nine assists thru 28 games played. Look for him to get hot soon as the Wild continue to play well after a slow start.

Mats Zuccarello registered a goal in the Wild’s 4-2 win over the Panthers on Tuesday. He was a plus one with a goal on three SOG in 14:07 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Zuccarello has disappointed thus far this season. Sometimes it takes time to get use to new teammates. In an 82-game season one should expect at least 50 points from Zuccarello because he has always put up that point per game pace yet this season, he is only on pace to put up 40. He can be cut where he is owned for better options or a hot hand.

Carson Soucy scored the game-winning-goal in the Wild’s 4-2 victory over the Panthers on Tuesday. He was a plus two with a goal on a SOG in 17:04 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Soucy is not fantasy relevant. He has two goals and one assist thru 25 games played this season. He does not see any run on either special teams’ unit. His ice-time saw an uptick in this contest due to an injury to Jared Spurgeon.

Kaapo Kahkonen allowed two goals in his second career outing to lead the Wild to a 4-2 win over the Panthers on Tuesday. He saved 44-46 shots against while recording his second victory.

Fantasy Impact: Kahkonen could be added for spot starts but it does not look like he will take the starting job at any point. He is now 2-0-0 with a 2.00 GAA and a .950 SV%. He is worth an add in deep daily leagues because of his performances to start his NHL career.

Mathew Dumba intercepted a clear attempt and found the back of the net in the second period as the Wild lost to the Kings Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Dumba continues to provide offense from the blue line with three goals and five assists for eight points through 18 games. That said, his -13 rating should make fantasy owners weary. Dumba remains an offensive only option at the defensive position for fantasy owners.

Dubnyk stopped 28 shots on Tuesday as the Wild fell to the Kings 3-to-1.

Fantasy Impact: Dubnyk is just 3-8-1 on the season with 3.43 GAA and an .893 save percentage. Currently, Dubnyk sits at 49th in the league for save percentage and 52nd in goals allowed. He should not be rostered in fantasy at this point.

Fiala scored his second goal of the season in the Wild's win on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Fiala now has three points through 10 games this season and is a -3. The former 11th overall pick in 2014 has never scored more than 48 points in a season. On pace for 16 goals at this juncture, fantasy owners will need to see more from Fiala before he's worth a pick-up.

Charlie Coyle was sent to Boston on Wednesday for Ryan Donato and a 5th round pick. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Coyle's role isn't clear yet, but Coyle's versatility will most likely be used until Pastrnak returns to the Bruins lineup. Reports are that the Bruins are still very active and if they acquire a winger it seems likely that Coyle will be running center on the third line.

Spurgeon had two assists and a goal in Tuesday night's loss to the Flyers.

Fantasy Impact: This breaks a three game scoreless streak. The blue liner now has 35 points on the season. He is averaging of 23:32 minutes of ice team per game.

Granlund scored Minnesota's lone goal in their loss to the Islanders.

Fantasy Impact: The goal came on a second period power play and tied the game at one. The offense couldn't muster anything up in this one as the Wild stayed cold. It was Granlund's 13th goal of the season.

According to Michael Russo of The Athletic, Koivu tore his ACL and Meniscus in last night's contest against the Sabres. (Source: Michael Russo of The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Koivu will miss the remainder of the season and can be dropped in all formats. He finishes the season with 29 points.

Parise tallied a helper on one of the three goals Minnesota scored.

Fantasy Impact: This was Parise's 25th assist of the season to go along with the 20 goals he has. The 45 points leads the Wild and he will look to continue his 0.88 point per game pace.

Stalock got the start in favor of Devan Dubnyk in the second half of back to back games. He allowed four goals on 31 shots.

Fantasy Impact: The offense provided three goals for the net-minder, but the Wild fell in overtime. Stalock had an underwhelming .871 save percentage in this one. He'll continue to spell Dubnyk when he requires a night off.

Staal recorded an assist in Minnesota's loss in Dallas.

Fantasy Impact: The Wild fell 3-1 in their first game back but Staal was able to chip in his 20th assist of the season. He ended the first half on fire, and now has 11 points in his last nine games. With the deadline coming up in a few weeks Staal's future in Minnesota is uncertain. He'll look to stay hot Saturday night against the Blackhawks.

Ryan Suter notched his 23rd assist of the season as Minnesota fell to Chicago.

Fantasy Impact: Suter has four goals and 23 assists for 27 points in 36 games. Suter remains a high-end defensive coring option.

Jonas Brodin tallied his sixth assist of the season the Wild's Thursday night loss to the Penguins.

Fantasy Impact: Brodin has four goals and six assists for 10 points on the season and he carries a -4 rating. He is not fantasy relevant.

Jordan Greenway was the lone Minnesota goal scorer in their 2-1 loss at the hands of Pittsburgh Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact: Greenway has six goals and five assists for 11 points in 33 games played. He has no fantasy value at this time.

Nino Niederreiter netted two goals and assisted on another for a three-point game in the Wild's win over the Panthers on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Niederreiter has seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points through 31 games this season. Niederreiter has five points over the last three games, but overall his year to date numbers are average at best. If he can extend this hot streak he'll have some fantasy value, so it is worth monitoring at this time.

Chris Stewart scored a goal and had an assist during the Wild's 4-2 loss to Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: He made the most of his 11:24 minutes of ice time by posting the two points and having a plus-one rating with two hits. Last year he scored 13 goals with eight assists and is more suited as a character role player for the Wild than a fantasy point producer.
