The Minnesota Wild prospects played well on Monday in Michigan vs. the St. Louis Blues. The Wild won 7-3 after an amazing first period with four goals. The Wild came off a day of rest and played like they were on fire. Minnesota Assistant General Manager Tom Thompson was there to take notice.
"Our team played extremely well in today’s game," Thompson said. "[The Blues] best player was definitely Erik Johnson, a Bloomington (Minn.), native, and they gave us a very tough game. But we moved the puck well and got some key goals."
There were a few other Minnesota natives that played well for the Wild including former University of Minnesota Golden Gopher Danny Irmen who scored two goals in the victory and former Gopher Tyler Hirsch who also tallied a goal. Hirsch has now scored one point in each game so far.
Let’s go Wild!
