Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau has shuffled his lines in the last few days.

Jason Zucker, who's scored in five straight games, found himself skating with Mikko Koivu and Mikael Granlund.

The fourth line was made up of Chris Stewart, Matt Cullen and Tyler Ennis. "Yeah," Boudreau said, "and they may change in the first period [Saturday]. … I tried Marcus on that [Staal] line about a week ago, and he didn’t have very good games. But I wanted to give him a crack at it again, and I thought he came in and did a lot of good things."

The 25-year-old is coming off his best season as an NHLer, as he scored 22 goals and 47 points in 79 games. The Wild are a deep team, but he should be able to reproduce similar numbers in 2017-18. He'll only have fantasy value in deep of standard leagues.

Jason Zucker is gearing up for what he sees as his "biggest year that I've had to date."

Zucker, 25, set new career-highs in 2016-17 with 22 goals and 47 points in 79 contests, so the question now is if he can build on that further or at least maintain that level of play going forward. "Last year was big coming off a down year for me the year before," Zucker said. "I think being able to prove that I can follow it up and be better is an even harder task and a bigger task. I'm excited for it. I know I'll be more ready. In my eyes, I'm expecting a lot more this year than I ever have." This coming campaign will also likely have huge ramifications for him financially as he's heading into the second half of his two-year, $4 million contract. If he has another strong campaign then he could be in line for a big payday.
