Mats Zuccarello tallied his fifth and sixth points of the season in the Wild's 4-to-2 victory over the Ducks on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Zuccarello has three goals and three assists for a total of six points through 11 games. The 11-year veteran is hot right now with a four-game point streak and goals in three straight. Zuccarello's opportunities to score will continue as a member of the first power-play unit and he should be rostered in all leagues right now.

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.

Zucker notched a first-period goal and added an assist on Parise's game-winning goal in the third period.

Fantasy Impact: Zucker snapped a three-game pointless streak with a strong performance on Sunday night. 2018-2019 was a disappointing follow up to his career-best 64-point season in 2017-2018. It's early in the year, but he is currently on a .5 PPG pace which is much closer to his career average (.52 PPG). At this point, it's best to treat Zucker as if his point total two years ago was an anomaly and that a .5 PPG game production level is what we can expect.

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.

Dubnyk had a rough night between the pipes, allowing 5 goals on just 26 shots against.

Fantasy Impact: On a night when the offense actually gave him four goals, he was only able to stop .808 percent of the shots against him. He's been roughed up in four of his past five games as the Wild continue to struggle.

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.

Matthew Dumba recorded his 10th assist of the season in the Wild's 5-1 win over the Panthers on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Dumba now has 10 assists and 12 goals for 22 points in 31 games. While his -4 rating isn't ideal, his point total and 12 total power-play points make him a good offensive defenseman option for fantasy owners.

Category: Game Recaps


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.

Kuemper came in relief of an ineffective Devan Dubnyk and stopped 18-of-20 shots during Minnesota's 4-2 loss to Chicago. He entered the game after just 4:38 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Kuemper is clearly the backup goalie in Minnesota, so even with Dubnyk's struggles lately Kuemper will continue to see backup duties as the Wild seek to get Dubnyk right and playing well for the playoffs. This season in 16 games, Kuemper has a record of 7-4-3 with a 3.21 GAA and a .904 save percentage.

Hanzal had an assist and three shots on goal during Minnesota's 3-1 win versus San Jose. He played 15:24 minutes in the win.

Fantasy Impact: In four games with the Wild he now has three assists and a total of nine shots on goal with his new team. Hanzal is proving to be a nice depth addition to a Wild team with eyes on a long playoff run this season.

Pominville had two goals and two assists in Minnesota's 4-2 win versus Winnipeg.

Fantasy Impact: His big game gives him three goals and five assists in his last six games. For the season, Pominville has eight goals and 19 assists.
