Wild: Kirill Kaprizov notches 100 points

Heading into tonight’s game, the Minnesota Wild have clinched the playoffs as they are set to have a first-round matchup with the St. Louis Blues. Before that happened, Kirill Kaprizov had other plans as he entered tonight’s game with 97 points. There’s no secret that the 5th round pick has insane offensive output, as only in his second season he has produced. He has exceeded expectations as he becomes a legitimate scoring threat and team leader in goals and points as he builds on his Calder Trophy-winning season.

With tonight’s matchup against the Seattle Kraken, Kaprizov continued his hot streak as he has one goal and three assists which now puts him at eight points over his last three games. With his second assist of the night, Kaprizov reached the 100-point mark for the first time in his career and became the first player in franchise history. With his offensive output tonight, he now has 45 goals and 56 assists for 101 points on the season. Kaprizov already owns the Wild single-season record for goals and points as he continues to add to his totals. At this rate, the way he plays, the records will be his for many years as no one will come close.

The sky is the limit for Kaprizov, as the Russian native is just at the beginning of his career. The 24-year-old has taken the NHL by storm since he stepped foot on the ice as he has become the heart and soul of the wild, making everyone around him better. Both Ryan Hartman and Mats Zuccarello are having career years playing with this guy as the Wild have one of the best offenses in the league.
