Granlund scored a goal in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Arizona. The second-period marker gave Granlund points in his last three games, bringing his season total to four in six contests. The ninth overall pick in 2010 has looked dangerous in the early stages of 2018-19 and should continue to produce consistently for his fantasy owners. Coming off two straight campaigns of 60-plus points, there's little reason to doubt Granlund's ability to do it yet again.
Granlund registered a primary assist in Monday's 4-2 road loss to the Predators. Granny has points in back-to-back games after dropping box-score goose eggs in the first three. Considering the 2010 ninth overall pick scored 21 times to go with 46 helpers over 77 regular-season games in 2017-18, it probably cost fantasy owners a pretty penny to acquire him, but the Finn is starting to pay dividends for those that have shown patience in the 26-year-old forward.
Granlund picked up his first points of the season, scoring a goal and adding an assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to Carolina. It took four games for Granlund to contribute offensively. He has averaged 68 points over the last two seasons, so we're sure his owners are as happy as Wild management that he's finally woken up. Stay patient.
Granlund had two shots on goal in 19:23 of ice time in Thursday's loss at Colorado. Granlund begins the season on the top line wtih Jason Zucker and Eric Staal. The top line didn't generate any offense Thursday, but that line should improve since it clicked last year and combined for 75 goals.
Granlund scored a goal and pitched in a helper in a 6-2 Game 3 victory over the Jets on Sunday. Granlund's power-play tally 9:47 into the first period got the party started for the Wild, who pumped in five more goals to cruise to victory on home ice. He also skated 18:45, which is the most of the young series for the 26-year-old Finn, as well as the most among Minnesota forwards in Game 3.
