Wild's Nico Sturm: Earns first postseason assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sturm produced an assist, two shots on goal and three hits in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 6.

He's added five shots on net, 14 hits and a plus-1 rating through six playoff contests. The German forward has centered the fourth line throughout the first round, and it's unlikely that role changes much heading into Friday's Game 7.
