Kevin Fiala arrived in St. Paul at the trade deadline in an effort for the team to get younger, faster, and less expensive. He was touted as a player with game-breaking potential, but in his nineteen games in a Wild sweater, he only had three goals and four assists. For eighty-two games, he would be on pace for about 13 goals and 17 assists; hardly “game-breaking”. In Nashville, he would consistently get second-line minutes, meaning his lack of production wasn’t entirely because of a lack of opportunity. Yet, he’s posted some impressive years with Nashville. So what should we expect out of the Swiss winger in his first full year as a member of the Minnesota Wild?
