  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Supplies two points Thursday

    Kaprizov provided a power-play goal and registered an assist in Minnesota's 6-1 win over Nashville on Thursday.

    Of Kaprizov's seven goals this season, five of them have been scored with the man advantage. His lack of even-strength tallies helps explain why he's currently on pace for just 27 markers after finishing with at least 40 in each of his previous two campaigns. In those past two seasons, 31 of his 87 goals were scored on the power play. Kaprizov should eventually start to do better at even strength, but in the meantime, he also has 13 assists this year, which brings him up to a solid 20 points through 21 contests.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Collects two points in loss

    Kaprizov scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Kaprizov failed to record a point during the Wild's two-game stint in Sweden, but his offense came back to him with a return to the USA. The winger has four goals and four helpers over nine outings in November. The 26-year-old is up to 17 points (10 on the power play), 62 shots on net, 10 hits and a minus-8 rating through 18 appearances this season, though that's a bit low for a player who's been over a point-per-game pace in each of the last two campaigns.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Two PP points in loss

    Kaprizov scored a goal and added an assist, both on the power play, in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Sabres.

    He got the Wild on the board with 30 seconds left in the first period, wiring a one-timer past Devon Levi from the faceoff dot to the goalie's left. He also set up Joel Eriksson Ek for a nearly identical goal midway through the third, as Minnesota tried to rally from a 3-1 deficit. It's only Kaprizov's third multi-point performance through 14 games, but his production's been steady with five goals and 14 points. He also has four tallies and four helpers on the power play.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Scores goal vs. Devils

    Kaprizov supplied a goal in a 5-3 loss to New Jersey on Thursday.

    Kaprizov brought an end to his three-game scoring drought and his five-game goal slump. He's up to three markers and 10 points in 10 outings this season. Kaprizov entered Thursday's action with a 5.4 shooting percentage, which was well below his career average of 15.6, so he was due for a goal, and it's entirely plausible that tally will mark the start of a hot stretch.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Helps out three times in win

    Kaprizov registered three assists in Tuesday's 7-4 victory against the Oilers.

    Kaprizov ended up with a plus-3 rating and three shots on goal in 18:05 of ice time across 17 shifts. The 26-year-old Novokuznetsk, Russia native has a pair of three-point games across the past four outings, and he is good for two goals and nine points overall, averaging 1.5 points per game through six contests. Although he's off to a slow start from a goal-scoring standpoint, Kaprizov has converted just 9.1 percent of his 22 shots on net this season -- a positive regression toward his career average of 15.9 percent seems likely for the winger as the season progresses, so fantasy managers shouldn't be hitting the panic button yet.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Huge night on power play

    Kaprizov collected a goal and two assists, all on the power play, in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens.

    All five Wild tallies came on special teams, as they jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period on a pair of shorties before Kaprizov and the power play got to work over the final two frames. The 26-year-old is off to a flying start to the season with a goal and five points in three games, and only one of his helpers has come at even strength.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Garners power-play assist

    Kaprizov registered a power-play assist and four shots versus the Panthers on Thursday.

    Kaprizov has racked up 30-plus power-play points in each of his previous two campaigns and should be capable of doing so again this season. Due to his limited number of games, just 67 last season, the 26-year-old winger fell shy of the 108-point mark he set in 2021-22. If he can stay healthy, Kaprizov should be able to challenge that threshold again in 2023-24.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Opens scoring on power play

    Kaprizov scored a power-play goal on six shots and added three hits in Monday's 3-2 double-overtime win over the Stars.

    Kaprizov got a subtle tip on a Jared Spurgeon shot to open the scoring at 19:12 of the first period. While Kaprizov played in just two of the Wild's last 17 games due to a lower-body injury and rest, he'll likely gut things out during the playoffs. The 25-year-old was excellent in 2022-23 with 40 goals, 35 assists, 261 shots on net, 66 hits and a plus-4 rating over 67 appearances.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Ready for Game 1

    Per Joe Smith of The Athletic, Kaprizov (rest) practiced on the first line Saturday, putting him on track to play in Monday's Game 1 versus Dallas.

    Kaprizov was always expected to be ready for Game 1 against the Stars after getting a night off to rest Thursday against Nashville. He racked up 40 goals and 75 points through 67 contests during the regular season.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Getting night off

    Kaprizov will not be in the lineup against the Predators on Thursday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Kaprizov has played in just two games since early March but did manage to put up decent numbers with one goal 11 shots and one hit in those pair of appearances. With several Wild players sitting out, Minnesota's top line will likely be Gustav Nyquist, Frederick Gaudreau and Marcus Foligno. Once the playoffs start, look for Kaprizov to retake his place on both the first line and No. 1 power-play unit.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Reaches 40-goal milestone

    Kaprizov (undisclosed) scored a power-play goal in Minnesota's 3-1 loss to Winnipeg on Tuesday.

    It was just Kaprizov's second appearance over Minnesota's last 16 games because of injury troubles. Even after missing all that time, Kaprizov's marker Tuesday was his 40th of the season, making this the second straight campaign in which he's reached that milestone. The 25-year-old also has 35 assists, 32 power-play points and 261 shots in 67 appearances in 2022-23.

    Kaprizov has played in just one game over the team's last 15 contests in which he registered three shots while averaging 20:26 of ice time, including 6:03 with the man advantage. With Kaprizov back in the lineup, he figures to return to both the first line and No. 1 power-play unit where he will be capable of offering top-end fantasy value.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Won't play Monday

    Kaprizov (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup Monday against Chicago, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Head coach Dean Evason said Monday that Kaprizov could play Tuesday against Winnipeg despite being "banged up." It sounds like Minnesota is being cautious with Kaprizov after he played Saturday against St. Louis for the first time since March 8 because of a lower-body injury.
