Wild's Luke Kunin: Added to Team USA roster
Kunin will join the United States at the 2019 IIHF World Championship in Slovakia.
Kunin split time between the NHL and AHL this season, making 49 appearances for Minnesota in which he tallied six goals, 11 helpers and 88 shots (all career highs). The center figures to be a near lock for next season's Opening Night roster and will almost certainly remain with the big club for the majority of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Gerald Mayhew: Secures two-year contract
Mayhew inked a two-year, two-way deal with Minnesota on Friday.
Mayhew went undrafted coming out of Ferris State, but was able to land a spot with AHL Iowa for the past two seasons. After racking up 27 goals and 33 assists in 71 outings this year, the 26-year-old caught the attention of the Wild and will now be playing under an NHL contract. The center figures to start the 2019-20 campaign in the minors, but could earn a call-up or two during the season.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Mason Shaw: Back under knife
Shaw underwent an additional procedure on his surgically repaired ACL in his right knee, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Shaw missed all but one game of the 2017-18 campaign after injuring his knee in a prospect tournament and now could be in doubt heading into 2019-20. After putting up 33 points in 76 games with AHL Iowa this season, the 20-year-old was certainly trending in the right direction. If he is able to suit up for training camp this fall, it could open the door for a potential call-up during the year.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Brandon Duhaime: Inks entry-level deal
Duhaime signed a two-year, entry-level contract with Minnesota on Wednesday. The contract will begin with the 2019-20 campaign.
The Wild selected Duhaim in the fourth round of the 2016 NHL draft. The 21-year-old American just finished his junior season at Providence College, during which he racked up an admirable 11 goals and 34 points in 42 games. The 6-foot-1 winger will immediately report to AHL Iowa on an amateur tryout offer for the remainder of the 2018-19 campaign and will be eligible to participate in the Calder Cup playoffs....

Wild's Zach Parise: Won't require surgery
General manager Paul Fenton is confident that Parise (knee/foot) should be able to recover fully while resting over the next four weeks.
A broken foot and a knee injury forced Parise to miss the last two games of the regular season, but it sounds like he'll be able to make a full recovery well ahead of next season's training camp without undergoing surgery. The 34-year-old winger enjoyed a bounce-back campaign in 2018-19, notching 28 goals and 61 points in 74 games after totaling just 24 points in 42 appearances in 2017-18. Parise's production will likely begin to decline over the next few seasons, but he'll still be a desirable secondary piece in all fantasy formats next year.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Zach Parise: Recovering from knee injury
General manager Paul Fenton believes Parise (knee) will make a full recovery while resting during the next four weeks.
Parise missed the final two games of the regular season due to a knee injury, but it appears as though he'll make a full recovery well ahead of next campaign's training camp without going under the knife. The veteran winger enjoyed a bounce-back campaign in 2018-19, notching 28 goals and 61 points in 74 appearances after totaling just 24 points in 42 games in 2017-18, and will remain a desirable complimentary piece in all fantasy formats next season....

Wild's Mathew Dumba: Expected to be ready for camp
Dumba (pectoral) should be ready for training camp, according to Wild GM Paul Fenton.
A ruptured right pectoralis muscle wiped out 50 games from Dumba's 2018-19 campaign and ultimately required surgery. The 24-year-old defenseman -- who has been universally owned in fantasy games when healthy -- finished with 12 goals, 10 assists and 12 power-play points through 32 contests.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Ryan Donato: Reassigned to minors
Donato was sent down to AHL Iowa on Tuesday.
Iowa has three regular-season contest remaining as it tries to secure a spot in the Calder Cup Playoffs and the addition of Donato should bolster the club's chances. The center logged 22 games with Minnesota this season after being acquired via trade from Boston, in which he registered four goals, 12 helpers and 64 shots. The center saw his ice time jump by over three minute per game with his new club and should benefit from an increased role next season.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Jordan Greenway: Sent to AHL affiliate
Minnesota reassigned Greenway to AHL Iowa on Tuesday.
AHL Iowa still has two games remaining on its schedule, so Greenway will head down to get a little more ice time before the 2018-19 campaign officially comes to an end. The 2015 second-round pick was pretty solid during his first full season with the big club, notching 12 goals and 24 points in 81 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Luke Kunin: Shipped back to minors
The Wild sent Kunin back to AHL Iowa on Tuesday.
Kunin should get some more games on his resume as AHL Iowa makes a push for a postseason berth. While he has yet to click at the top level, owning just 17 points through 49 contests, the 15th overall pick in 2016 could be a breakout candidate next year if they Wild invest in some surrounding talent this offseason....

Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Enjoys career year
Spurgeon produced 14 goals and 43 points while averaging 24:09 of ice time in 82 games this campaign.
Spurgeon put up his best offensive season with 43 points -- 14 goals, 29 helpers -- in 82 games, all of which are career highs. On top of the offensive production, the 29-year-old had 152 shots, 145 blocks and 91 hits, too. Look for continued development from the diminutive rearguard in 2019-20.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Ryan Suter: Leads league in ice time
Suter put up seven goals and 47 points while averaging 26:42 of ice time in 82 games this campaign.
Suter was the epitome of an ironman this campaign, playing in all 82 games for the seventh time in his career. The 47 points were good for 14th among league defensemen, and he also finished tops in the NHL in ice time. The Wild missed the playoffs for the first time since he and Zach Parise signed in 2012, so don't be surprised if both come out with extra motivation next fall.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Jordan Greenway: Solid in first full NHL campaign
Greenway produced 12 goals and 24 points while averaging 13:38 of ice time in 81 games this season.
Greenway was solid during his first full NHL campaign, receiving an average of 40 seconds of power-play ice time throughout the season as well. Ups and downs for the 22-year-old were expected, and Greenway ended the season with just two points in his last 15 games. The Boston University product is still on his entry-level contract, so he's a solid dynasty league stash with large upside possibility going forward.... See More ... See Less
Wild's J.T. Brown: Dealing with off-ice incident
Brown was allegedly arrested early Saturday in Dallas on suspicion of public intoxication, Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune reports.
Brown sat out the Wild's final game of the season against the Stars with what was deemed an illness. With the season over, we'll keep you posted if and when Brown receives any discipline from the league that would impact his status for 2019-20.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Zach Parise: Reaches 60-point plateau
Parise (lower body) recorded 28 points and 61 points while averaging 18:40 of ice time in 74 games this season.
Parise was shut down for the final two regular-season contests due to an illness and lower-body injury that had been lingering. The 61 points were the most Parise has produced in a season since the 2014-15 campaign, when he had 62 points. The Wild missed the playoffs for the first time since he and Ryan Suter signed in 2012, so don't be surprised if Parise has an extra chip on his shoulder next year.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Jason Zucker: Fails to hit 50-point mark
Zucker had 21 goals and 42 points while averaging 17:05 of ice time in 81 games this year.
It was a down year for the University of Denver product relative to his 64-point outburst during the 2017-18 campaign. Zucker still produced 14 power-play points during the season, so that's certainly a positive sign for his fantasy value for next season. The 27-year-old signed a large five-year, $27.5 million extension with the team last summer, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see Zucker in a prominent role next season.... See More ... See Less
Wild's J.T. Brown: Decent campaign, limited role
Brown (Illness) had three goals and eight points while averaging 9:10 of ice time in 56 games this season.
Unfortunately, Brown's season came to an abrupt end after he missed Saturday's clash against Dallas due to an illness. Even in a limited role, eight points is Brown's highest output for a season since he had 22 in 2015-16.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Luke Kunin: Solid in abbreviated season
Kunin accumulated six goals and 17 points while averaging 15:53 of ice time in 49 games this campaign.
Kunin was able to run his career point total up to 21 in 68 career games. The Missouri native will be entering the final year of his entry-level contract, so it'll be important for him to play well in what will most likely be his first full NHL season in 2019-20.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Eric Staal: Down year in 14th season
Staal registered 22 goals and 52 points in 81 games while averaging 18:08 of ice time this season.
After a resurgent 74-point season last campaign, it was going to be tough for the 34-year-old to follow that up in 2018-19. The 52 points is the Ontario native's lowest mark in a season since the 2015-16 campaign. Staal is under contract for two more seasons with the Wild following a contract extension he signed in February.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Alex Stalock: Seemingly gives it his all in finale
Stalock turned away 41 of 44 shots in a 3-0 loss to host Dallas on Saturday.
Stalock permitted only five goals on 78 shots between the Bruins and Stars for his final pair of starts to close out the season, but Minnesota's No. 2 netminder still hasn't won since Jan. 15. Finishing with a 6-8-3 record, 2.99 GAA and .899 save percentage, Stalock remains a solid insurance handcuff for Devan Dubnyk owners, but he can be had near the end of most fantasy drafts ahead of the 2019-20 campaign....
