Hunt managed a power-play assist, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
Hunt notched the secondary helper on Kevin Fiala's first-period marker. The assist snapped a four-game point drought for the defenseman. Hunt also attained a new career-high with 19 points, 10 of which have come on the power play. The 31-year-old blueliner has 101 shots, 36 blocks and a minus-4 rating in 55 appearances.
Hunt registered an assist and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks.
Hunt matched his career high in points with 18, achieving the mark in 50 games this year. The defenseman has added 91 shots on goal, 29 blocks and a minus-3 rating in a limited, third-pairing role. His fantasy value is limited to deeper formats.
Hunt had a goal and an assist with three shots and two blocks in Thursday's 4-2 win over Vancouver.
Hunt opened the scoring with a snap shot from the point just over six minutes into the first period. He also set up Kevin Fiala's power-play marker later in the frame that sent the Wild into the first intermission with a 3-0 lead. A veteran depth defenseman, Hunt is averaging just over 15 minutes of ice time per night and has chipped in with a career-high eight goals and 16 points through 46 games.
Hunt (illness) fired three shots on goal, dished a hit and blocked a shot in 12:13 during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blackhawks.
The defenseman missed seven games due to the illness. Hunt is at 15 points (eight on the power play) and 83 shots in 45 contests. A power-play specialist, Hunt could set a new career high in offense this season, but he's not likely to help outside of filling rosters in DFS.
Hunt (illness) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's clash with Chicago, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Hunt has been sidelined since Jan. 12 due to an illness, so he'll likely have some rust to shake off early on Tuesday. The 31-year-old rearguard, who's picked up 15 points in 44 games this campaign, will skate on Minnesota's third pairing and second power-play unit against the Blackhawks.
Hunt (illness) will not play in Saturday's game against the Bruins.
Hunt will miss a fifth straight game due to illness. The defenseman is only a part-time player for the Wild, so fantasy owners shouldn't miss him as he continues to work on getting back up to speed. His next chance to return is Tuesday versus the Blackhawks.
Hunt (illness) will remain on the shelf for Wednesday's clash with the Red Wings, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Hunt has been sidelined since Jan. 9 versus Calgary due to his lingering illness. While the defender has returned to practice, he is still working his way back up to game speed. With both the All-Star break and the team's bye week coming up, the Wild aren't back in action until Feb. 1 against Boston which should be plenty of time for Hunt to get back to 100 percent.
Hunt (illness) won't play in Monday's game versus the Panthers, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Hunt can't seem to shake this sickness, as he'll miss his third straight game due to the illness. He was a healthy scratch for two games beforehand, though, so his absence won't shake up the team's blue-line dynamic much. Hunt will aim to get back in the lineup Wednesday versus the Red Wings.
Hunt (illness) will miss Saturday's contest versus Dallas.
The 31-year-old will sit with an illness Saturday. Even when healthy, Hunt has found himself on the outside looking in most nights, so best to avoid the veteran blueliner in fantasy.
Hunt was held out of practice Thursday due to illness, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Hunt was a healthy scratch in the Wild's previous two contests and may not have been in the lineup versus the Lightning anyway. If needed, the club has Nick Seeler available to serve as an emergency depth option. Prior to being benched, the 31-year-old Hunt was stuck in a five-game pointless streak. Once healthy, the defenseman should be capable of earning back his spot on the blue line.
Hunt has been a healthy scratch for the past two games.
With Greg Pateryn on the mend from groin surgery Sunday, Hunt lost his spot in the Wild lineup. It's surprising for Hunt, especially considering the 31-year-old had seen 2:17 of average power-play time this campaign. With eight healthy defensemen on the roster, Hunt is locked into a battle with Pateryn, Carson Soucy and Nick Seeler for ice time, which doesn't bode well for his fantasy prospects.
Hunt netted a goal and added a helper in an 8-5 win over the Coyotes on Thursday.
Hunt had the secondary helper on Eric Staal's second-period goal. The Coyotes bounced back from that, but Hunt's sixth tally of the season restored the lead for the Wild. The blueliner is at 14 points and 59 shots on goal through 36 games this season, which is just four points shy of his career high.
Hunt has just one assist while averaging 13:32 of ice time through the first five games of December.
Although Hunt hasn't produced big numbers from a scoring standpoint, head coach Bruce Boudreau has awarded his strong play with 2:26 of average power-play time this season. The 31-year-old is still on pace for his best season in terms of production in his career through just 31 games. With plenty of premium ice time, Hunt is a sneaky fantasy option going forward, especially with Jared Spurgeon (hand) and Greg Pateryn (groin) still managing injuries.
Hunt has racked up 10 points and is averaging 15:27 of ice time through the first 20 games of the season.
Hunt has built off his strong end to the season last year, following it up with a half-point per game average early. He's done so seeing 2:14 of average power-play time, and racking up six of his 10 points on the man advantage. Hunt has already tied a career-high five goals in a season, rocking a stunning 17 percent shot percentage.
Hunt tallied a goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Sharks.
Hunt's marker ignited a three-goal third period for the Wild, but they just fell short. Hunt is up to five goals and nine points through 16 games this year. The power-play specialist is worth an add in most fantasy formats for his solid point production so far.
Hunt registered a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Stars.
The man-advantage maestro was back at it again, recording his fifth power-play point out of seven overall. Hunt managed 12 points in 42 contests last year, with eight of them coming while a man up. The 31-year-old should not be expected as a reliable source of offense -- his career high in points is 18, set in 2017-18.
Hunt scored a power-play goal on his lone shot in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Edmonton.
The former Oiler blasted a one-timer past Edmonton goalie Mike Smith from the right faceoff circle late in the first period, putting the Wild on top 3-0. Hunt, 31, is off to a nice start in 2019-20, with four goals and six points in nine games. Don't expect that 18.8 shooting percentage to hold up -- Hunt will serve as a depth player for the Wild.
Hunt scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Penguins.
Hunt set up Jason Zucker for a power-play tally in the second period, and then the defender scored an even-strength goal in the final frame. Hunt had three shots on goal in the contest. The 31-year-old has four points in as many games to start the year, and he's posted 10 shots on goal.
Hunt scored a goal Thursday and finished Minnesota's 5-2 loss to the Jets with a team-high six shots.
Hunt spent most of Thursday's game trying to be an offensive spark for the Wild. His first marker of the year gave his team life early in the third, but the Jets ultimately pulled away with three straight goals following Hunt's equalizer. The 31-year-old has never eclipsed 18 points in a season, so until further notice, keep Hunt off your fantasy team.
Hunt had an assist on the power play in 14:06 of ice time in Thursday's loss to Nashville.
Hunt begins the season on the third blue-line pairing, but looks to have a role on special teams with 2:23 of ice time on the power play and 47 seconds on the penalty kill. He could have value in deep leagues as a result.
