The 24-year-old spent 21 games with the Wild last year after being traded from Colorado for Nico Sturm. Of course, the Avs went on to win the Stanley Cup and Jost was reminded and harrassed by some Colorado fans in the offseason.
Jost had a strong training camp with the Wild and is projected to be paired on a line with Joel Eriksson-Ek and Marcus Foligno to open the regular season with Greenway out. Jost got a look on that line last season with so-so results, and will get another opportunity now.
Jost finished with eight goals and 20 points between the Avs and Wild last season. He finished the preseason with seven points in five games.
