Mikael Granlund picked up a pair of points during Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars.
Granlund kicked off the night's scoring just 3:32 in to the game, and would later be the primary helper on Mikko Koivu's late third period tying goal. So one can say that Granlund picked up his first two points of the series in style. He now has 15 points in 28 career playoff games. Apr 23 - 1:35 AM

Despite having several quality scoring chances in Game 2, Mikael Granlund couldn't convert on any of them.

Granlund missed three golden opportunities in the first period alone (he missed the net from point-blank range). Granlund also wasted a 3-on-1 shorthanded break for the Wild because he took too long to shoot the puck. The Wild are down 0-2 in their series against Dallas and they've received no goals from their forwards.
Apr 17 - 11:55 AM

The Wild have shuffled their lines in advance of Game 2 Saturday against Dallas.

Mikael Granlund will line up as a winger on a line alongside Mikko Koivu and David Jones, while Charlie Coyle will center a unit featuring Jason Zucker and Justin Fontaine. Erik Haula (provided he returns to action) took his usual spot between Nino Niederreiter and Jason Pominville, while Jarret Stoll centered Ryan Carter and Chris Porter. It is unclear if this is how John Torchetti's troops will line up for Saturday night's game but there is a pretty good possibility he's going to give this a try to start. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
Apr 16 - 11:50 AM

Mikael Granlund scored in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Granlund cut Winnipeg's lead to 2-1 with under 13 minutes remaining in the third period, but that's as close as the Wild would come to tying the game. Granlund has 13 goals and 44 points in 80 games this season. Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise picked up the assists on the Wild's only goal of the game.
Apr 3 - 10:43 PM

Mikael Granlund had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

Granlund picked up the only assist on Zach Parise's opening goal and he scored a shorthanded goal into an empty net at the 11:06 mark of the third period (yes, Patrick Roy pulled his goalie very early). Granlund has 11 goals and 41 points in 76 games this season.
Mar 27 - 10:16 AM

Mikael Granlund scored twice in the Wild’s 4-1 win against the Canadiens on Saturday night.

He scored one at even strength and one on the power play, the 13th game in a row on the road in which the Wild have converted on the man advantage. The Wild hoped Granlund would develop into a top-line center this season. That hasn’t been the case, as he has 10 goals and 36 points. Nino Niederreiter and Erik Haula got the other goals.
Mar 12 - 10:19 PM

Mikael Granlund scored the game winning goal in Minnesota's victory over Toronto on Thursday night.

Granlund has eight goals and 34 points in 65 points this season, nine of which have come in the past 16 games.
Mar 4 - 12:45 AM

Mikael Granlund potted his seventh goal of 2015-16 in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Philadelphia.

He tied the game at 2-2 before the end of the second period. Granlund has had a disappointing season, but he has been playing much better lately. He has three goals and four assists in the past eight games.
Feb 26 - 9:39 AM

Mikael Granlund notched a goal and an assist in a 5-2 win against Edmonton on Thursday night.

He has been heating up with two goals and three assists in the past five games. Granlund has scored just six markers this season, but his recent scoring surge is encouraging.
Feb 19 - 9:52 AM

Mikael Granlund ended a 14-game goalless drought Thursday night in a 4-3 loss to Washington.

Granlund had one goal in 34 games going into Thursday's match against the Capitals and that was scored in to an empty net on Jan. 5 versus Columbus. The 23-year-old center has disappointed this season five goals and 27 points in 54 games.
Feb 12 - 10:11 AM

Mikael Granlund's empty-net goal on Jan. 5 is his only marker in the past 30 games.

Granlund also has just one assist in 10 games. He isn't the only member of the Wild who is struggling to produce, but he sees most of his playing time alongside Zach Parise and he hasn't made the progress that many were hoping for. Granlund has four goals and 25 points in 49 games this season.
Jan 27 - 1:15 PM

Despite centering Minnesota's top line alongside Zach Parise and Jason Pomminville, Mikael Granlund does not play on the Wilds' first power-play unit.

Parise, Pomminville, Mikko Koivu, Thomas Vanek and Ryan Suter comprise the first unit, while Granlund gets ice time on the second team. When the season started he was a fixture on the first squad but the Wild have struggled with the man advantage and Granlund was a casualty. Needless to say, this impacts his fantasy value somewhat.
Jan 23 - 12:57 PM

Aside from an empty-netter on Jan. 5, Mikael Granlund hasn't scored a goal in 26 straight games.

Granlund's drought has been compounded by the fact that Minnesota as a whole has been struggling offensively lately. To be fair though, this isn't a huge deviation from the norm for Granlund as he had just 18 goals in 158 career games going into this season. It is disappoint though that the 23-year-old hasn't been able to take a big step forward this season when it comes to his offensive production.
Jan 17 - 10:48 AM

Mikael Granlund compiled three points in a 4-2 win versus Columbus on Tuesday night.

He assisted on two of Zach Parise's three goals in the contest prior to potting an empty netter. It was Granlund's first goal since Nov. 21 and he ended a five-game point skid as well. The Wild will need him to step up if Mikko Koivu is sidelined for any stretch of time.
Jan 6 - 9:37 AM

Mikael Granlund has 16 points in his last 20 games.

He has scored two of his three goals this season during that span, but his unwillingness to shoot most of the time is holding him back. "He's kind of on the bubble right now of showing that he can be a full-time producer, but he's still struggling to learn how to do it a little bit," coach Mike Yeo said. The 23-year-old center has 21 points in 33 contests.
