At some point or another, minor league hockey players become too good to play in the minor leagues as could be the case for a few players who have been with the Iowa Wild this season. With this, we will discuss three prospects that we could see with the Minnesota Wild next season.
The guy Wild general manager Bill Guerin selected ninth overall in the 2020 Entry Draft Marco Rossi, who some have tabbed as the Wild’s future No. 1 center had to sit out an entire season due to health reasons.
He has had an unbelievably strong first season with the Iowa Wild, scoring 18 goals and 35 assists and has also played two games this year with Minnesota. Rossi has shown that he can play and his compete level is there to be a full-time NHL player.
That is something that could possibly happen next season as it would be a situation where he could beat out someone for a final roster spot.
