Top Wild News

  • Wild's Marc-Andre Fleury: Allows four goals Wednesday

    Fleury stopped 22 of 26 shots in a 5-3 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

    Minnesota had a 2-0 lead going into the first intermission, but Fleury was beaten twice in each of the second and third periods. The Flames' final goal was scored on an empty net. Fleury has allowed at least three goals in each of his last five games. The 38-year-old is 9-6-1 with a 3.10 GAA and .892 save percentage in 17 contests this season.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Records assist vs. Flames

    Dumba registered an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Calgary.

    Dumba has two goals and eight points in 25 games this season. He had 14 goals and 50 points in 82 contests in 2017-18, but since then he hasn't even reached the 30-point milestone. The 28-year-old consequently isn't expected to score regularly this season, though his offensive pace might improve a bit.

  • Wild's Jon Merrill: Contributes two points Wednesday

    Merrill scored a goal and registered an assist in a 5-3 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

    Merrill found the back of the net at 15:45 of the third period to even the game at 3-3, but Calgary retook the lead just 12 seconds later. Merrill has a goal and six points in 21 contests. The 30-year-old typically isn't much of an offensive contributor, but he does have four points in his last four games.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Goals keep coming

    Kaprizov found the back of the net in Minnesota's 5-3 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

    Kaprizov's goal came at 1:27 of the first period to give the Wild a 1-0 lead. Minnesota ultimately couldn't maintain that early edge, but on the plus side, Kaprizov is now on an unreal seven-game goal scoring streak and has at least a point in 13 straight contests. The 25-year-old is up to 17 markers and 33 points in 25 games. Even with his goal scoring pace, Kaprizov's 15.9 shooting percentage is still a hair below his 16.3 from 2021-22. Kaprizov's advantage in the current campaign is that he's averaging 4.28 shots per game, up from 3.57 last season.

  • Wild's Mats Zuccarello: On four-game point streak

    Zuccarello registered an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Calgary.

    Zuccarello has recorded at least a point in four straight games and six of his last seven contests. He's up to eight goals and 25 points in 25 games this season. That's a scoring pace that the 35-year-old proved he's capable of maintaining when Zuccarello finished 2021-22 with 24 goals and 79 points in 70 contests.

  • Wild's Connor Dewar: Chips in two helpers Wednesday

    Dewar provided two assists in a 5-3 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

    Dewar extended his point streak to three games, giving him three goals and nine points in 24 contests this season. He was averaging just 11:04 of ice time entering Wednesday's contest and logged 12:09 versus the Flames. Unless the 23-year-old gets a bigger role, it's unlikely that he will make regular offensive contributions.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Gets two points vs. Flames

    Shaw scored a goal and registered an assist in Minnesota's 5-3 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

    Shaw scored at 2:25 of the first period to put the Wild ahead 2-0, but by the time he registered an assist at 15:45 of the third, Shaw was only helping put Minnesota in a 3-3 tie. That lasted just 12 seconds before Rasmus Andersson netted the game-winning goal for Calgary. Shaw has four goals and 10 points in 20 contests this season. The 24-year-old is on a three-game point streak.

  • Wild's Jonas Brodin: Still sidelined

    Brodin (lower body) won't play Wednesday against the Flames, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Brodin returned to practice Tuesday, so he should be ready to return sooner rather than later, but he'll nonetheless miss a fourth straight contest Wednesday. Once given the green light, look for Brodin to retake his spot on the top pairing.

  • Wild's Marc-Andre Fleury: Starting in Calgary

    Fleury will guard the road net Wednesday versus Calgary, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Fleury has won his past three outings, including a 30-save effort in Sunday's 6-5 shootout victory versus Dallas. He has a 9-5-1 record this season with a 3.04 GAA and an .895 save percentage. Calgary has won two consecutive contests going into Wednesday's matchup with the Wild.

  • Wild's Jonas Brodin: Ruled out for Wednesday

    Brodin (lower body) won't play Wednesday against Calgary, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Brodin is not ready to return yet even though he looked good during Tuesday's practice. The Wild defender has been out since Nov. 27. Brodin has collected four assists, 29 shots on goal, 34 blocks and 19 hits in 19 games this season.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Provides two helpers Sunday

    Spurgeon registered two assists in Sunday's 6-5 shootout win over Dallas.

    Spurgeon has 10 points in 24 games this season, including one goal and three helpers in his past four outings. He also had three shots on goal, one hit and two blocks across 21:49 of ice time during Sunday's win.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Scores again in shootout victory

    Kaprizov scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 6-5 shootout victory over the Stars.

    Kaprivoz opened the scoring with a power-play goal early in the first period. He would also score in the shootout en route to the Minnesota victory. With Sunday's goal, Kaprizov has now scored in six consecutive games while extending his point streak to 12 contests. The 25-year-old winger has eight goals and 11 assists over the span of his streak. He's up to 32 points (16 goals, 16 assists) through 24 games this season.

  • Wild's Ryan Reaves: Two helpers in victory

    Reaves logged a pair of assists in Sunday's 6-5 shootout win over the Stars.

    Reaves picked up his first helper on Jacob Middleton's goal in the second period before adding a second on Jordan Greenway's tally just 15 seconds later. The 35-year-old winger now has three helpers in his last two contests after he was held without a point in his previous 15 games. While Reaves seems to have found a role in Minnesota's bottom six, he's more likely to serve as a physical presence rather than a consistent point producer.

  • Wild's Marc-Andre Fleury: Stops 30 in shootout win

    Fleury allowed five goals on 35 shots in Sunday's 6-5 shootout victory over Dallas.

    Fleury and the Wild held a 5-1 lead early in the third period before Dallas' potent offense exploded for four goals to tie the game 5-5 and force overtime. Minnesota managed to hang on and win in a shootout, giving Fleury a third consecutive win. The 37-year-old netminder improves to 9-5-1 on the season with an .895 save percentage.

  • Wild's Jonas Brodin: Remains sidelined

    Brodin (lower body) won't play Sunday against Dallas, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Brodin, who hasn't played since Nov. 27, is still considered to be day-to-day. It remains unclear when he will be ready to return. Minnesota is off until Wednesday versus Calgary following Sunday's contest.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Earns shootout triumph

    Gustavsson made 29 saves during Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over the visiting Ducks.

    Gustavsson, who recovered from an upper-body injury to earn his first start since Nov. 23, claimed his third consecutive win. The 24-year-old netminder stopped two of three skaters in the shootout. Despite surrendering two one-goal leads during the opening 30 minutes Saturday, Gustavsson (4-4-1) helped the Wild extend their winning streak to a season-high three games.
