Boldy is a young kid at only 20 and as such, still needs to develop to become an effective NHL player. As such, he may find himself playing less minutes until he shows the coaching staff what he can provide for the Wild at his max potential.

Boldy certainly provided a spark to the Iowa Wild when he arrived there and the same could be said for the NHL. One comparable situation could be Cole Caufield and the Montreal Canadiens this year.  Caufield played some time in the AHL before stepping in the NHL and helping the Canadiens reach the Stanley Cup Final

Let’s not jump the gun here, with perhaps playing a lower amount of minutes he may not produce to how Caufield does for Montreal.
