The Minnesota Wild play their season opener in 17 days. Until that time we will be counting down the 10 most important Wild players for the upcoming season. Thus far, Kevin Fiala came in at number 10. Ryan Donato checked in at number nine. Eric Staal was number eight on the list and Jared Spurgeon was number seven on the countdown.
Ryan Suter is the model of consistency. The 34-year old defenseman just keeps chugging along and one could argue that he’s getting better with age.
This past season Suter posted 47 points, which ranked 14th among defenseman.
