by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin (upper body) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Predators, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin (upper body) won't play in Sunday's game against Washington but could be available for Tuesday's game against Nashville, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Kunin has missed the past four games with the upper-body injury he suffered in Feb. 21's game against Edmonton. Although the 22-year-old could be available Tuesday, head coach Dean Evason said Sunday that Kunin will definitely accompany the team on it's road trip that starts Thursday in San Jose. Expect another update regarding Kunin's status in the coming days.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin is expected to miss about two weeks while dealing with an upper-body injury, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

The specifics surrounding the injury remain unclear, but the 22-year-old suffered the injury during the first period of Friday's game against the Oilers. Kunin is enjoying a career-best season, racking up 27 points, 119 shots and 61 hits across 59 games. As long as he's sidelined, look for Victor Rask, Ryan Donato and call-up Gerald Mayhew to vie for the lineup spot vacated by Kunin.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin (upper body) will not return to Friday's game against the Oilers.

Kunin played only 5:20 during the first period and did not return to the bench for the second. The 22-year-old should be considered day-to-day for now. The Wild's next game is Sunday against the Blues.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wild's Luke Kunin: Deposits pair of goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin scored two goals, including one while shorthanded, in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Panthers.

Kunin's hot stretch continued -- he's up to three goals and five assists in his last eight games. The 22-year-old is already on a career year with 24 points, 98 shots and 48 PIM in 48 contests. A first-round pick from 2016, Kunin is beginning to show some offensive promise in a third-line role.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Hot streak continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin recorded an assist, three shots on net and four hits in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.

Kunin generated 12 points over the first 34 games, but he's hot right now with nine points over the past 11 contests. The 2016 first-round pick is working on the third line and averaged 14:36 in that stretch, so his depth scoring will be integral if the Wild want to climb back into the playoff mix.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Stays hot with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin registered an assist, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Flames.

Kunin has two goals and four assists over his last six outings, with a plus-4 rating and 17 shots in that span. He's at 19 points, 87 shots, 44 hits and 32 PIM through 42 games this season. A first-round pick in 2016, Kunin is beginning to show some offensive promise at the NHL level, which should earn him a little interest in DFS formats.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Five points in last five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime victory over Winnipeg.

The 22-year-old isn't without talent -- he just hasn't fulfilled it. Yet. But quietly, Kunin has put up five points in his last five games, including a couple goals. He now has a career-high 18 points in 41 games, and he might be a sneaky waiver pickup in deep formats if his mitts continue to stay warm.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Two points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-0 win over the Flames.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Second multi-point outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Thursday's 6-5 win over Edmonton.

Kunin's seventh goal of the season at the 16:21 mark of the third period was enough for the Wild to secure the victory. The 22-year-old is on pace for his best NHL season from a statistical perspective, as he's now up to 12 points, 31 hits and 65 shots on goal in 31 games this campaign. Kunin has developed some solid chemistry with his linemates and fellow youngsters -- Joel Eriksson Ek and Jordan Greenway -- on the team's third line.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Producing in first full season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin racked up three goals and six points while averaging 16:18 of ice time in 12 November games.

The 21-year-old is coming along nicely in his first NHL season, on pace for career highs in ice time, goals and points. Coach Bruce Boudreau has moved Kunin around in his top-nine forward group, giving him more chances to produce on offense rather than in a defensive checking role. Kunin has developed nice chemistry with fellow youngsters Joel Eriksson Ek and Jordan Greenway this season, and all three are developing into intriguing fantasy options, especially in dynasty leagues.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Good to go Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin (illness) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Kings, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Wild's Luke Kunin: Out with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunin (illness) will not suit up for Saturday's road game in Arizona, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

With Kunin too sick to play, Minnesota will have seven defensemen in its lineup Saturday. Kunin's absence comes at a particularly bad time considering he had notched three points in his last two games. Kunin will hope he's feeling better by Tuesday when the Wild visit LA to battle the Kings.
