The wild are testing the market for Kevin Fiala


  • Kevin Fiala could be on shaky ground with the Minnesota Wild.
  • The 23-year-old winger has been a healthy scratch twice this season.
  • According to Elliotte Friedman, his talent and favorable contract should make him a good fit with the Wild but they’re going to see what out there in the trade market.

” Coach Bruce Boudreau indicated the winger would be back in the lineup soon, “because we could use his offence,” but it’s clear this marriage is shaky.

It’s a tricky scenario because he hasn’t even been there a calendar year, and was acquired by a previous GM. He’s talented, and the contract is not prohibitive. In a perfect world, he’s part of the solution in Minnesota. But, they’re going to see what is out there.”

  • Fiala had a 23-goal, 48-point performance in 2017-18.
  • If he can’t find his footing with the aging Wild he could regain his form with a younger club.
