Player Outlook

After four seasons, Mikael Granlund finally lived up to his billing as a top-10 pick, blowing way past his old career bests with 26 goals and 69 points in 81 games. Drafted as a center and deployed down the middle up until this past season, he was moved the wing by Wild coach Bruce Boudreau in 2016-17, and that opened up Granlund's offensive game; now, the 25-year-old comes with sky-high expectations for this coming season. Minnesota's historically emphasized two-way play, which has helped Granlund become an all-around player, but there's been more of an emphasis on offense since Boudreau took over. Playing on the first line with veteran distributor and fellow countryman Mikko Koivu has allowed Granlund to focus more on scoring, but Koivu is aging and has never been a point-per-game player, which may limit Granlund from joining the ranks of the league's elite producers even though he possesses the talent to do so.

  • Wild's Mikael Granlund: Training again
    By RotoWire Staff

    Granlund (ankle) has resumed his offseason training regime and should get back on skates in another week, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. Granlund seems to be trending in the right direction as he recovers from this ankle ailment along with a broken hand. After notching 26 goals and 43 helpers -- both career highs -- last year, the 25-year-old is poised for another big season, with 60 points certainly not out of the question.

  • Wild's Mikael Granlund: Injures ankle training
    By RotoWire Staff

    Granlund (hand) hurt his ankle during training, but is expected to resume his offseason regimen in two weeks, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. Granlund is already working through a broken hand he suffered during the playoffs and now will miss two weeks of training with an ankle ailment. At this point, neither malady is expected to impact his availability for the 2017-18 campaign -- although fantasy owners may start to question his durability.

  • Granlund (hand) agreed to a three-year, $17.25 million contract extension with the Wild on Tuesday, the Star Tribune reports. The industrious, point-packing forward has thus avoided arbitration. Last season, Granlund established career highs across the board, with his 26 tallies and 43 helpers representing a 15-point jump compared to his 2015-16 campaign. He's also a mainstay on the man advantage, which gives fantasy owners yet another reason to consider drafting him as a No. 2 forward. The Finn could reach an even higher tier by taking more shots -- he accumulated those at a rate of 2.18 per game last season. He's been rehabbing from a broken hand this summer, but it shouldn't affect his status for the upcoming campaign.

  • Granlund (hand) opted for arbitration -- rather than signing his qualifying offer -- Wednesday, per Michael Russo of the Star Tribune. Granlund will head to arbitration rather than signing his one-year, $3.2 million qualifying offer. Up until the hearing takes place, the center and Minnesota can still agree to a long-term deal. After he racked up 69 points in 81 contests this past season, it's hard to imagine the Wild not wanting to secure the 25-year-old's services for the long run.

  • Wild's Mikael Granlund: Rights retained by Minnesota
    By RotoWire Staff

    Granlund (hand) was extended a qualifying offer by the Wild. Granlund, 25, shattered his previous career highs in goals and points, scoring 26 goals and 69 points, topping it off with a plus-23 rating. It's hard to imagine a scenario where the Wild would let him walk, so expect any offer that Granlund receives to be matched.
