Mikael Granlund has been one of the stars at the IIHF World Hockey Championships in Russia.

He has scored four goals and registered 11 points in eight games and has an assist in Saturday morning's semifinal game which Finland is leading 3-1 over Russia. Granlund has been an enigma in his NHL career to date. His skills should render better scoring results. We recommend you give Granlund the 2016-17 season before giving up on him, though. Granlund is still a candidate for a breakout season.

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.
