StaTuesday: Wild players on franchise all-time leaderboard
The Minnesota Wild begin their 15th season Thursday and as the year goes along several players have a chance to move up the franchise’s all-time leaderboard.
Specifically, start tracking the statistics of Mikko Koivu, Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Koivu, the team’s No. 1 overall pick in 2001, already is the Wild’s all-time leader in points and assists, but here’s a look at some other categories in which Minnesota players can move up this season.
If Koivu can stay healthy, he’ll be No. 1 overall three-fourths of the way into the season.
WILD ALL-TIME GAMES PLAYED
Koivu won’t move up, but Parise has a chance to move up to No. 4 — and No. 3 if he can put up 40 goals, which Wild fans certainly wouldn’t mind.
WILD ALL-TIME GOALS
Again, Koivu is already No. 1, but Ryan Suter, heading into his fourth season with the Wild, is poised to make the top-five this season.
WILD ALL-TIME ASSISTS
Parise needs just 47 points to move into fifth place all-time. Seeing as how he had 62 points last season and 56 in 2013-14, that’s more than doable.
WILD ALL-TIME POINTS
Wild fans no doubt would like to see Parise and/or Jason Pominville move well up on this list this season.
WILD ALL-TIME GAME-WINNING GOALS
Not necessarily a statistic that people keep track of, but it is a stat nonetheless and Koivu is poised to be the all-time leader while Parise is also working his way up.
