That’s Wild

  • During Wednesday night’s game against the Colorado Avalanche, Minnesota Wild winger Kirill Kaprizov was in his own world of offensive awareness and skating ability. Gliding around the ice with no care in the world and hunting the puck down like a madman as he created scoring opportunities.
  • The Iowa Wild had a game postponed due to some COVID complications, but the game has now been rescheduled. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • Ever since Mats Zuccarello returned from injury as the Wild resumed play after their forced break, he has been absolutely electric and the key figure in the team’s offense. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • Ryan Hartman has been promoted to third-line center and he has been a welcome surprise so far this season. [The Athletic]
  • Kaapo Kahkonen’s rise as a young netminder means he can share the pipes with Cam Talbot. [10K Rinks]
