      Wild C Mikael Granlund dazzles with two assists in win

      Wild center Mikael Granlund notched two assists in Thursday's wild comeback against Colorado in the season opener. Granlund finished first among Wild forwards with 21:28 and a plus-3 rating. He showcased his passing ability on Zach Parise's first goal of the game and continued to dazzle with another pass to Thomas Vanek. Granlund's ceiling is sky high and he should be added in pretty much all standard leagues after this performance.

The 22-year-old tallied eight goals and 31 points in 68 games in 2014-15, nearly identical production to what he posted a season earlier.

      Analysis: Mikael Granlund finished the regular season strong with a point in five of his final six contests and his playoff campaign has picked up where he left off as he's totaled three points through the three games thus far. The 23-year-old's scoring wasn't consistent enough over the course of the season to earn much consideration outside of deeper leagues, but he finished the year with a plus-17 rating and is now up to plus-4 in the playoffs, giving him some value in that department.

    • Wild's Granlund Registers Assist In Loss

      News: Mikael Granlund registered an assist in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.
      Analysis: The 23-year-old hasn't taken the leap forward some might have hoped for this season, as he's posted 35 points through 65 games after contributing 41 through the same amount of contests in 2013-14. However, his overall fantasy value has probably still grown from a year ago, largely by virtue of his sterling plus-17 rating. Mikael Granlund is quality roster filler in mid-sized or deeper leagues, but it might still take another year or two for him to realize his ceiling.
    • Wild's Granlund Distributes Puck In Loss

      News: Mikael Granlund assisted on both Minnesota goals -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Capitals.
      Analysis: He'd gone three straight off the scoresheet -- including going without a shot in the last two -- entering Thursday's action, but you can't keep a slick playmaker like Mikael Granlund down for long. Still, this has been a bit of a disappointing campaign for the 23-year-old, as he owns only a modest 32 points in 57 games, a scoring rate lower than last year's. A cool start to the year and a wrist injury derailed this campaign to some degree, but he's still got as much long-term upside as anyone.
    • WiId's Granlund Nets GWG Vs. Canes

      News: Mikael Granlund scored the game-winning goal and had an assist in Friday's win over Carolina.
      Analysis: Mikael Granlund has heated up of late, recording a plus-7 rating in his last three games and compiling 11 points in his last 11 games. Centering the top line with Zach Parise and Jason Pominville, Granlund is worth looking at right now, as he's an elite playmaker and has a very unique skill set. Keep in mind that while he sports an impressive plus-16 rating, he's only picked up 12 PIM and rarely shoots the puck. If you're looking for points though, give the 23-year-old a look.
