    News

    Winnik had five blocks and 1:35 of power play ice time, but did not have a shot on goal in Thursday's win over Chicago.

    Impact

    Winnik is rarely used on special teams, but he could get some time on the power play the next few games with the Wild having several skaters out with injuries.

    News

    Winnik's (personal) visa was expedited to allow him to suit up versus Detroit on Thursday.

    Impact

    Winnik was in camp on a professional tryout before signing a one-year deal Wednesday. With the ink on his contract still drying, the Ontario native needed to quickly establish a work visa in order to be eligible to play. The 32-year-old will join fellow veteran and new addition Matt Cullen on the Wild's fourth line.

    News

    Winnik may not be able to resolve his visa issues in time for Thursday's road match with the Red Wings.

    Impact

    There's apparently still hope that he can get cleared, but it's a race against time for the Wild newcomer at this point. Winnik joined training camp with Minnesota and ended up signing a PTO just Wednesday. Prepare alternatives in fantasy in case the winger isn't eligible to play.

    News

    The Minnesota Wild signed Winnik to a one-year, $660,000 contract Wednesday.

    Impact

    Winnik attended training camp on a professional tryout contract. He is expected to skate on the fourth line after collecting a career-high 12 goals, 13 assists and 49 penalty minutes in 72 games last season with the Washington Capitals.

    News

    Winnik signed a one-year deal worth $660,000 with Minnesota on Wednesday.

    Impact

    The 10-year NHL vet joins his eighth team after winning a spot while playing on a professional tryout contract during training camp. Winnik brings experience and penalty-killing ability, and is coming off a 2016-17 campaign that saw him score a career-high 12 goals. From that sense, Minnesota appears to have gotten a great bargain in adding Winnik, though from a fantasy standpoint, he won't be much of a factor outside of the deepest of leagues.
