    Wild’s Victor Rask: Sparks comeback

    Victor Rask scored a goal and went plus-2 in Thursday’s 4-3 overtime win over the Kings.Rask was listed as the fourth-line center, but he saw enough time with Kirill Kaprizov to convert on one of the latter’s passes in the third period. There’s plenty of opportunity for the 27-year-old Rask in 2020-21, as the Minnesota Wild have rather poor center depth. The Swede shouldn’t have as much trouble staying in the lineup as he did last year, but most fantasy managers can still leave him on the waiver wire for now.

    Victor Rask posted an assist and two hits in Friday’s 5-3 win over the Oilers.Rask finally got back into the lineup after eight straight games as a healthy scratch.

    Wild’s Victor Rask: Stuck in press box

    Victor Rask is expected to serve as a healthy scratch for Sunday’s game against Colorado, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.Sunday will mark the fourth straight time that Rask will be stuck in the press box as the team’s healthy scratch at forward. He’s had quite an inconsistent year for the Minnesota Wild, with only 11 points, 34 shots on goal and 23 hits in 40 games. Even when he gets another opportunity in the lineup, Rask fails to warrant any fantasy consideration.

    Wild’s Victor Rask: Provides helper in win

    Victor Rask notched an assist, a pair of hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday’s 8-5 win over the Coyotes.Rask had the secondary helper on Marcus Foligno’s go-ahead goal at 3:25 of the second period. Rask has nine points and a plus-9 rating through 26 contests, matching his offense from 49 games between the Minnesota Wild and Hurricanes last season. He’s not close to the pace necessary to match his career-high 48 points from 2015-16.

    Wild’s Victor Rask: Primed for increased role

    Victor Rask will likely center the second line for Thursday’s game against Edmonton with Eric Staal (undisclosed) injured, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.Staal exited Tuesday’s game after colliding with an official, and his status for Thursday is uncertain. Rask has been used exclusively in a bottom-six role with the Minnesota Wild to this point in the season, averaging just 9:50 of ice time. The 26-year-old will likely see his ice time number rise as early as Thursday, especially considering he’s racked up three points in his last five games.

    Wild’s Victor Rask: Notches helper Saturday

    Victor Rask dished out an assist in 7:32 of ice time in Saturday’s 4-3 loss to Carolina.Rask finally got back on the scoresheet, nabbing his first point since Oct. 14. He’s been a non-factor from a fantasy perspective this season, only notching three points and skating in 9:24 of average ice time in 11 games. Coach Bruce Boudreau has planted Rask on the fourth line for much of the year through the first 20 games, so don’t expect Rask to be a reliable fantasy option for the time being.
