It also just so happens to be the debut of Marc-Andre Fleury, the legendary goaltender that the Wild traded for at the NHL Trade Deadline. Dmitry Kulikov will be playing in place of Jon Merrill, after the former was a healthy scratch for the first time this season on Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks. With the addition of Jacob Middleton at the deadline as well, this has created a little bit of a shift on the blue line that will get sorted before the post-season.
Projected Wild lineup:
Kirill Kaprizov—Ryan Hartman—Mats Zuccarello
Kevin Fiala—Frederick Gaudreau—Matt Boldy
Jordan Greenway—Joel Eriksson Ek—Marcus Foligno
Brandon Duhaime—Tyson Jost—Nicolas Deslauriers
Jonas Brodin—Matt Dumba
Jacob Middleton—Jared Spurgeon
Dmitry Kulikov—Alex Goligoski
Marc-Andre Fleury is in net for your Minnesota Wild.
