Fantasy Spotlight: MIN vs. DAL

Fantasy Spotlight: Mikko Koivu

As the Wild closes out its 2010-11 season tonight against the Dallas Stars, it should come as no surprise that you'll want to have Mikko Koivu on your fantasy hockey roster. Really, it would've been a safe bet to have Kaptain Koivu marked down in pen on your lineup card all season because he's brought the effort and skill he's famous for to every game he's suited up in this season.

The Finn's competitiveness and desire to make the home crowd happy are good reasons to pick him for a few points tonight, but it's an even safer selection when you look at his current hot streak and tonight's opponent. Koivu factored into every Wild goal Friday, as he helped lead Minnesota to a 3-1 win in Edmonton with three assists. The 28-year-old also has five points (3-2=5) in his last five home games against the Stars.

The centerman leads the Wild with 43 assists and ranks second on the team with 60 points (17-43=60) in 70 games this season. He is also tied for the team lead and is the top Wild forward with a +4 rating on the year.
