  • Winnik failed to score a goal for the eighth consecutive game during Tuesday's 3-0 win over Philadelphia. Winnik has carved out an important defensive role in his first campaign with the Wild. He's beginning 54.0 percent of his five-on-five shifts in his own zone and is averaging 2:16 per contest killing penalties. Unfortunately it's led to just two goals, five points and 16 shots through 17 games, and it would be surprising if the offense began to pick up. As a result, it's difficult to rely on Winnik in the majority of fantasy settings.

    Winnik had five blocks and 1:35 of power play ice time, but did not have a shot on goal in Thursday's win over Chicago. Winnik is rarely used on special teams, but he could get some time on the power play the next few games with the Wild having several skaters out with injuries.

    Winnik's (personal) visa was expedited to allow him to suit up versus Detroit on Thursday. Winnik was in camp on a professional tryout before signing a one-year deal Wednesday. With the ink on his contract still drying, the Ontario native needed to quickly establish a work visa in order to be eligible to play. The 32-year-old will join fellow veteran and new addition Matt Cullen on the Wild's fourth line.

    Winnik may not be able to resolve his visa issues in time for Thursday's road match with the Red Wings. There's apparently still hope that he can get cleared, but it's a race against time for the Wild newcomer at this point. Winnik joined training camp with Minnesota and ended up signing a PTO just Wednesday. Prepare alternatives in fantasy in case the winger isn't eligible to play.

  • Wild's Daniel Winnik: Joins Wild on full-time basis
    By RotoWire Staff

    Winnik signed a one-year deal worth $660,000 with Minnesota on Wednesday. The 10-year NHL vet joins his eighth team after winning a spot while playing on a professional tryout contract during training camp. Winnik brings experience and penalty-killing ability, and is coming off a 2016-17 campaign that saw him score a career-high 12 goals. From that sense, Minnesota appears to have gotten a great bargain in adding Winnik, though from a fantasy standpoint, he won't be much of a factor outside of the deepest of leagues.
