Kirill Kaprizov News
Minnesota Wild forwards Kirill Kaprizov and Mats Zuccarello haven't traveled with the team to Chicago and will sit out the game against the Blackhawks. The team has just lost a top-six forward in Joel Eriksson Ek (lower body) and clearly doesn't want to take unnecessary risks with its two top scorers. Kaprizov is fresh back from a month-long absence as well, and the Wild will be extremely cautious with him, as the playoffs are just around the corner. With Kaprizov and Zuccarello out, Marcus Johansson, Frederick Gaudreau and Matthew Boldy will link up on the first line Monday, while highly-rated Marco Rossi will see NHL action for the first time since November.
Minnesota Wild left wing Kirill Kaprizov (lower body) will return to the lineup Saturday against St. Louis. The 25-year-old star, who has registered 39 goals and 74 points in 65 outings, returned to practice at the start of the week and will be back from a 13-game absence. Kaprizov's return is great news for a team that has just lost another top-six forward Joel Eriksson Ek (lower body) to injury. Kaprizov should team up with Ryan Hartman and Mats Zuccarello on the top line, with Sam Steel moving down and possibly taking over Eriksson Ek's spot as the second-line center.
Minnesota Wild left wing Kirill Kaprizov (lower-body) practiced with the team on Wednesday for the first time since he sustained an injury on March 8, and the star forward could return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blues. Kaprizov wore a non-contact jersey during the practice and will not play in Thursday's contest against the Penguins. The Wild could also have forward Gustav Nyquist (shoulder) return to the ice and make his team debut in Saturday's game, as he has not played since late January after suffering a shoulder injury as a member of the Blue Jackets. Kaprizov has totaled a team-high 39 goals, 35 assists and 74 points through 65 games, and his return comes at a perfect time for the Wild as they battle for the top spot in the Central Division heading into the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Minnesota Wild left wing Kirill Kaprizov (lower body) has been ruled out for three to four weeks. He suffered a lower-body injury against Winnipeg on Wednesday, and it looks like Kaprizov will now sit out a minimum of 10 games. It's an awful blow for the team, as Kaprizov is by far the best scorer on the roster and has been outstanding throughout the campaign with 39 goals and 35 assists in 65 outings. Matt Boldy skated with the first line after Kaprizov departed the game Wednesday, and Marcus Johansson is also a candidate to move into his role.
