Fantasy Spotlight: MIN at CHI

Fantasy Pick: Mikko Koivu

The Wild's top line has looked especially impressive in the last few Wild games, and leading that charge has been center Mikko Koivu. He might not have registered a point in the Wild loss to Vancouver last night, but that certinaly wasn't from a lack of chances. Kaptain Koivu always plays with intensity, but his aggressiveness in the past few games make him a good selection for your fantasy lineup tonight; he simply can't be kept off the score sheet much longer with the level of play he's showcased recently.

Against tonight's opponent, the Chicago Blackhawks, Koivu has already tallied two assists in two games this season and owns 17 points (3-14=17) in 21 contests throughout his career. He's been especially hot against the Blackhawks recently, tallying seven points (2-5=7) in his last eight games against Chicago.

Beyond fantasy hockey points, Wild fans should hope Koivu registers a big game tonight as the Wild is 9-2-0 all-time vs. Chicago when he registers a point. He has also been a big part of the Wild's recent 9-3-0 stretch, posting nine points (3-6=9) in that span. On the season, Koivu ranks first on the Wild with 33 assists, second with 47 points (14-33=47) and a +6 rating and third with 148 shots in 56 games.
