Top Wild News

  • Wild's Connor Dewar: Produces assist in win

    Dewar logged an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Dewar has two helpers over seven games since he returned from a lower-body injury. The 24-year-old forward is up to 11 points, 47 shots on net, 87 hits and a minus-9 rating through 52 appearances. Dewar plays on the fourth line, and his lack of offense makes him a no-go for most fantasy managers.

  • Wild's Jacob Middleton: Assists in consecutive games

    Middleton posted an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Middleton has turned things around with a helper in each of the last two contests to break out of a 10-game slump. The tough defenseman had the secondary assist on Marcus Johansson's first-period marker. Middleton is up to 20 points, 64 shots on net, 119 hits, 121 blocked shots and a minus-8 rating through 58 appearances. Aside from the ugly plus-minus, he's on track for career-best marks across the board.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Nabs helper in win

    Hartman posted a power-play assist, two shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Hartman helped out on the first of Kirill Kaprizov's two tallies in the contest. This was Hartman's third helper over the last four games. The 29-year-old forward is up to 30 points (seven on the power play), 119 shots on net, 56 hits, 36 blocked shots, 40 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 53 outings. He's played on the second line recently, which has likely helped to steady his offense.

  • Wild's Brock Faber: Reaches 30-assist mark

    Faber posted an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Faber snapped a five-game point drought with the helper, his 30th of the season. The 21-year-old defenseman has had a handful of scoring slumps, but his strong defensive play has more than made up for when his offense is quiet. Faber has 34 points, 91 shots on net, 114 blocked shots, 49 hits and a plus-2 rating over 58 appearances in a top-four role.

  • Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Distributes four helpers

    Zuccarello notched four assists, three shots on goal, four PIM, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Two of Zuccarello's assists came on the power play. The 36-year-old winger has 10 points over his last four games, with seven of those points coming with the man advantage. The playmaker has 11 goals, 39 assists, 121 shots on net, 39 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating through 49 outings overall. He is defying the NHL's aging curve again and could end up with one of his best seasons if he stays healthy.

  • Wild's Dakota Mermis: Nets goal Saturday

    Mermis scored a goal and blocked four shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Mermis capped a run of three goals in 5:49 during the second period. He snapped a six-game point drought with his first goal since Oct. 26. The 30-year-old defenseman has seen steady playing time this season, posting eight points with 36 shots on net, 53 blocked shots, 34 hits, 31 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 40 appearances. That's not enough offense to help in most fantasy formats.

  • Wild's Marcus Johansson: Scores in Saturday's win

    Johansson scored a goal, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

The 33-year-old winger is up to nine goals, 27 points, 88 shots on net and a minus-9 rating through 58 appearances. He remains in a second-line role, though his offense is on the low end of effectiveness for fantasy managers.

  • Wild's Matt Boldy: Stays hot with power-play goal

    Boldy scored a power-play goal on three shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Boldy has turned up the heat with seven goals and seven assists over nine outings in February. The winger's tally early in the second period stood as the game-winner. Boldy is up to 23 goals, 47 points (16 on the power play), 155 shots on net and a plus-5 rating over 51 contests this season in a top-six role.

    Kaprizov scored twice on four shots and added an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Two of Kaprizov's three points came on the power play. He put the Wild ahead in the first period and helped build the lead further early in the middle frame. The 26-year-old has seven goals and 11 assists during his eight-game point streak, making him one of the hottest scorers in the league. For the season, Kaprizov has 26 goals, 63 points (30 on the power play), 177 shots on net and a plus-7 rating through 51 appearances.

  • Wild's Marc-Andre Fleury: Makes 30 saves in win

    Fleury stopped 30 of 32 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Fleury played well in the second half of a back-to-back. He earned his fourth win in his last five outings, a span in which he's allowed just 12 goals. The 39-year-old is up to 12-10-3 with a 2.92 GAA and an .899 save percentage over 28 appearances. Fleury's name has popped up in trade rumors, but he'll have plenty of control over the destination with a no-move clause. With the Wild working back into the playoff race, they may be hesitant to deal the veteran away unless he requests a move.

  • Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Hurt in Saturday's contest

    Eriksson Ek (undisclosed) went down awkwardly along the boards in the third period and did not finish Saturday's game versus the Kraken, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Coach John Hynes said after the contest that Eriksson Ek "should be good," according to Darren Brown of NHL.com, so the Wild forward could be fine for Tuesday's matchup versus Carolina. The center had an assist Saturday, his 15th point over the last eight appearances and his 54th point through 58 outings overall.

  • Wild's Zach Bogosian: Unavailable Saturday

    Bogosian (upper body) won't return Saturday against Seattle, per Joe Smith of The Athletic.

    Bogosian has a goal, nine points, 37 PIM, 83 hits and 53 blocks in 44 outings in 2023-24. With Bogosian unavailable, Jon Merrill will remain in the lineup.

  • Wild's Declan Chisholm: Playing well

    Chisholm logged an assist, three blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    Chisholm has earned three points over four contests since he joined the Wild off waivers from the Jets. The 24-year-old has seen steady bottom-four usage with Zach Bogosian (upper body) hurt and Alex Goligoski struggling to stay in the lineup. Chisholm has four points, two shots on net, nine blocked shots, three hits and a plus-2 rating over six outings overall and should stick in the lineup as long as the Wild don't make additions at the trade deadline.

  • Wild's Jacob Middleton: Snaps slump with helper

    Middleton provided an assist, logged three hits and went plus-2 in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    Middleton snapped a 10-game point drought with the helper. The 28-year-old defenseman had been surprisingly solid on offense earlier in the season -- he already has a career-high 19 points through 57 outings. Middleton tends to make his biggest contributions with physical play, racking up 120 blocked shots, 119 hits and 63 PIM while seeing top-four minutes.

  • Wild's Marcus Johansson: Collects helper

    Johansson notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    Johansson's offense has been missing in action lately -- this was just his second assist over his last 10 games. The 33-year-old has maintained a middle-six role through the dry spell, but his December surge is a distant memory now. Johansson has 26 points, 87 shots on net, 31 hits and a minus-11 rating over 57 contests. With little in the way of non-scoring production, Johansson's tough to roster in fantasy when he isn't generating offense.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Offers assist Friday

    Hartman recorded an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    Hartman's goal drought is over a month long -- he has five assists over 12 contests since he last scored. The 29-year-old has moved up and down the lineup this season, but he's been on the second line and second power-play unit recently. He's up to 29 points, 117 shots on net, 56 hits, 40 PIM and a minus-5 rating through 52 appearances this season.
