Top Wild News

  • Wild's Adam Beckman: Returns to AHL

    Beckman was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Tuesday.

    Beckman wasn't slated to play Thursday versus the Kraken, so he'll head back to Iowa to close out the season. The 22-year-old produced two assists, 13 hits and 12 PIM over 11 NHL contests this season.

  • Wild's Jesper Wallstedt: Sent back down

    Wallstedt was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Tuesday.

    Wallstedt won both of his games during this stint on the NHL roster, but those were against the Blackhawks and the Sharks. Marc-Andre Fleury will start Thursday's season finale versus the Kraken, so there's no need to keep Wallstedt in the NHL to close out the campaign.

  • Wild's Jacob Middleton: Assists in consecutive games

    Middleton logged an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

    Middleton has a helper in each of the last two games following an eight-game point drought. The 28-year-old defenseman is up to 24 points through 79 outings, by far the best season of his career. He's added 145 hits, 158 blocked shots, 84 shots on net and PIM, though his minus-16 rating is one negative mark on an otherwise solid campaign for a stay-at-home blueliner.

  • Wild's Brock Faber: Snags helper Monday

    Faber notched an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

    Faber is putting together a strong finish to the campaign with five helpers over his last six games, though he's also gone minus-3 in that span. The rookie defenseman is up to 46 points, 133 shots on net, 150 blocked shots and 64 hits through 81 outings overall. He was able to command a top-pairing role throughout the campaign as one of the best rookies in the league.

  • Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Sends assist in win

    Eriksson Ek registered an assist, three shots on goal, two PIM and two blocked shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

    Eriksson Ek helped out on a Ryan Hartman tally late in the second period, which ended up being the game-winner. The helper was Eriksson Ek's second in as many contests, but he's been limited to three assists over eight games in April. The center has put together a career year with 64 points, 266 shots on net, 167 hits, 60 PIM and a plus-18 rating, all personal bests, in 76 outings, but he's faded late in the campaign.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Earns two assists in win

    Rossi provided a pair of assists, including one on the power play, in Monday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

    Rossi had been limited to three goals with a minus-7 rating over his previous 12 contests. The 22-year-old set up goals by Matt Boldy and Kirill Kaprizov in Monday's victory. The pair of helpers got Rossi to the 40-point mark, and he's added 167 shots on net and a minus-3 rating over 81 appearances in his rookie campaign.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Tallies late in second period

    Hartman scored a goal on two shots and blocked three shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

    Hartman's goal came in the dying seconds of the second period, and it stood as the game-winner. Three of his 21 tallies this season have been game-winners. The 29-year-old forward has 44 points, 173 shots on net, 74 hits, 72 PIM, 64 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 73 appearances as a solid and physical two-way forward capable of playing just about anywhere in the lineup.

  • Wild's Matt Boldy: Strikes on power play Monday

    Boldy scored a power-play goal on four shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

    Boldy extended his point streak to five games (three goals, four assists) with the first-period tally. The 23-year-old has 14 points over his last 13 outings as he's continued to thrive in a top-line role. Boldy is up to 29 goals, 38 helpers, 224 shots on net, 48 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 74 appearances this season.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Goal, assist in win

    Kaprizov scored a goal on five shots and added an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

    Kaprizov recorded his fourth multi-point effort over the last six games. The winger hasn't gone quietly even with the Wild missing out on the playoffs this year. He's up to 45 goals, 95 points, 271 shots on net, 55 hits and a plus-12 rating through 74 appearances. He'll have one more chance to add to those numbers in Thursday's season finale versus the Kraken.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Strong in win

    Gustavsson stopped 23 of 24 shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

    Gustavsson had a shutout bid deep into the third period, but Blake Lizotte broke it up with 5:24 left in the game. The 25-year-old Gustavsson held on for the win, his first since March 28. The Swede was able to get to the 20-win mark for the second year in a row, but it was a challenging campaign. He's 20-18-4 with a 3.11 GAA and an .898 save percentage through 45 appearances this season. Marc-Andre Fleury is scheduled to start the season finale Thursday versus the Kraken, so Gustavsson is likely done for the campaign.

  • Wild's Marc-Andre Fleury: Gets starting nod for Thursday

    Fleury will patrol the blue paint for the season finale against Seattle at home Thursday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Fleury could be playing in his final career game, given his expiring contract and the fact that he has publicly stated he would only sign in Minnesota. If the Wild opt to go in a different direction, the three-time Stanley Cup winner is reportedly poised to hang up the skates. On the year, he is 17-14-5 with two shutouts, a 2.98 GAA and an .895 save percentage through 39 contests.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Starting in LA

    Gustavsson will guard the road goal Monday against the Kings, according to Michael Russo of The Athletic.

    Gustavsson has surrendered 10 goals on 97 shots during his three-game losing streak. He has a 19-18-4 record this season with a 3.11 GAA and an .898 save percentage across 44 games played. The Kings sit 16th in the league with 3.10 goals per contest this campaign.

  • Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Yet to rejoin team

    Zuccarello (personal) was not on the ice for Monday's game-day skate, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports, indicating he'll be unavailable versus the Kings.

    Zuccarello remains mired in a 20-game goal, but he has produced 16 helpers over that stretch, including seven with the man advantage. At this point, Zuccarello should probably be considered questionable to play in the Wild's season finale at home versus the Kraken on Thursday.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Back with team

    Gaudreau (personal) took part in Monday's game-day skate and should be available versus the Kings, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Gaudreau will be back in action following a two-game stint on the sidelines while attending to a personal matter. The 30-year-old forward has scored just once in his last 16 outings while chipping in two assists. Even with Mats Zuccarello (personal) still in doubt, Gaudreau is unlikely to see anything more than a bottom-six role for the Wild's last two games.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Gets on scoresheet with assist

    Goligoski posted an assist and blocked four shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

    Goligoski has been in the lineup for four of the Wild's last six games after sitting out all but one game in February and March combined. The 38-year-old defenseman is up to 10 helpers, 30 shots on net, 37 blocked shots, 25 hits and a minus-8 rating through 34 appearances this season. Goligoski's limited role gives him virtually no fantasy appeal this late in the campaign.

  • Wild's Jacob Middleton: Gets assist in win

    Middleton notched an assist in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

    Middleton snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper on a Matt Boldy goal in the first period. The 28-year-old Middleton has enjoyed a career year with 23 points, 84 shots on net, 157 blocked shots, 144 hits, 77 PIM and a minus-16 rating. He remains a fixture in a top-four role, though his usage is exclusively defensive in nature.

  • Wild's Marat Khusnutdinov: Nabs assist Saturday

    Khusnutdinov notched an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

    Khusnutdinov is starting to find a groove at the NHL level with three points over his last four games. The center has remained in a third-line role, but he's seen a bump in ice time during his warm-up. Khusnutdinov has four points, six shots on net, 16 hits and a minus-3 rating through 14 appearances for the Wild.

  • Wild's Brock Faber: Registers assist in win

    Faber notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

    Faber has a goal and six helpers over his last 10 contests. The 21-year-old defenseman looked to be slowing down on offense in mid-March, but he's rebounded nicely late in the campaign. He's at 45 points, 130 shots on net, 149 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating through 80 appearances this season. Faber will be in the conversation for the Calder Trophy, but he faces an uphill battle to win more votes than Connor Bedard.
