Luke Kunin (knee) hopes to resume skating this week.
Kunin sustained an ACL tear in his left knee on March 4, which ended his season. He underwent surgery and was originally projected to miss seven months. That puts his availability for the start of the season in question, though his rehab has been going well so far. "I’m not going to put a timeline on it or anything like that," Kunin said. "Obviously, I would love to be ready by training camp. That’s my goal. I want to play. That said, at the end of the day, it’s up to the doctors and what they say as far as how it’s going. It’s one of those things that I know I can’t rush. Just trying to stick with it and trust the process." Jul 17 - 3:55 AM

Luke Kunin registered the first two points of his NHL career on Saturday.

Kunin assisted on goals by Ryan Suter and Daniel Winnik. Kunin was playing in his third game of the season and logged a modest 11:57 minutes. He's a good prospect and one worth keeping an eye on, but we'd caution against getting too optimistic about his outlook for the 2017-18 campaign. He still doesn't have a particularly big role and might not stick with the Wild once some of their key forwards are able to return from their respective injuries.
