Jason Pominville hit a number of marks in his first full season as a member of the Minnesota Wild. He led the team in goals (30) and points (60).

On Oct. 26, 2013 the winger skated in his 600th career game against the Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center. He celebrated the milestone by scoring a pair of goals, including the game winner against the Hawks.

This game marked the first glimpse of the connection between Pominville and center Mikael Granlund. On the Pominville’s first, Granlund feathered a pass to the wing in the slot, and the 31-year-old finished high on goaltender Corey Crawford.

On the game winner, Granlund picked off an outlet pass at the Hawks blue line, walked into the slot and slid a pass onto Pominville’s tape. Pominville wasted no time, putting the puck over an outstretched Crawford.
