If you’re unfamiliar, we’re going player-by-player in a ranking of the top 25 Minnesota Wild players that are under the age of 25. It’s fairly simple. Enjoy! Brock Faber has come into the Wild’s system and jumped a lot of folks in the depth chart, and our overall excitement ranking. Since being one-half of the return for Kevin Fiala from the Los Angeles Kings, the reason for the acquisition has become clearer and clearer with every...

Wilderness Walk: Jost received hateful messages from Avs fans

Wilderness Walk: Jost received hateful messages from Avs fans

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports Your daily dose of Wild news, along with other interesting stories from around the NHL. That’s Wild Tyson Jost is quickly becoming a fan favorite in Minnesota. He has been scoring a whole lot in the preseason and might end up taking Kevin Fiala’s role in the lineup for the foreseeable future. But he did suffer what he called some “dark days,” as he saw his former teammates on the Colorado Avalanche lift the Stanley Cup just a few months after he was traded. After the championship celebrations, Jost reportedly received a lot of...

Recap: Wallstedt calmly earns Wild 5-2 win over Stars

Recap: Wallstedt calmly earns Wild 5-2 win over Stars

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports No panic, whatsoever. Wild go 3-0-0 in the preseason. Jesper Wallstedt had a lot to prove coming into this season, and he might have just sorted it out within the first two appearances in a Minnesota Wild sweater. A massive asterisk over any statement at this time of year — since it is the preseason — but a 19-year-old goaltender just showing up, after putting in a below-average performance on Sunday during a half-game stint against the Colorado Avalanche, and taking over a full 60 minutes to nullify a team’s offense, is incredibly...

Preview: Wild visit Stars in another preseason matchup

Preview: Wild visit Stars in another preseason matchup

Photo by Tom Pennington/ Just another exhibition game before everything matters. It’s another Minnesota Wild gameday that doesn’t really mean anything in the end. Yes, it still feels good that our favorite hockey club is 2-0-0 in this preseason and both wins come over the reigning Stanley Cup champions — but, it’s just too bad that this is just a little warm-up and it is too early in the preseason to really get an understanding of what this team looks like. The Wild have made two rounds of cuts at training camp, but both of them involve players that we knew for...

Top 25 Under 25: Ohgren debuts at No.6 on the list

Photo by Andy Devlin/ After being selected in the first round of the 2022 Draft, he makes his Top 25 U25 debut at sixth on the list. Another year, another great draft for Judd Brackett and his team with the Minnesota Wild. The first round especially was shocking, as Liam Öhgren and Danila Yurov fell into their laps. We covered Yurov earlier in this ranking (you can find that article here or down below), but the other pick that they made five selections prior was even better. Öhgren is one of the most fun players I and many others had the privilege of watching,...

Top 25 Under 25: Marat Khusnutdinov earns No. 7 spot

Photo by Maksim Konstantinov/SOPA Images/LightRocket via The 20-year-old Russian jumps up two places from his previous ranking. There are so many underrated prospects around the NHL. Every system seems to have one or two. The Minnesota Wild are no exception. Despite Marat Khusnutdinov coming in seventh overall in our Top 25 Under 25 rankings this year, it doesn’t feel as if he gets the recognition around the league that he deserves. The kind of production he has had with all kinds of different players, from those his own age to men in the KHL, is extremely...

Will Jordan Greenway miss a week to start the Wild's season? Two weeks? The first month? For now, his script will remain the same. Go to rink. Get treatment. Skate. Avoid contact.
