  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Two goals in loss

    Rossi scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Winnipeg.

    Rossi provided a bright spot in an otherwise tough night for the Wild -- the 22-year-old center got Minnesota on the board with a power-play goal in the second period before cutting the Jets' lead to 5-3 late in the third, deflecting a Kirill Kaprizov shot past Laurent Brossoit. Rossi now has points in three straight games and five (four goals, one assist) in his last five contests. He's up to 17 goals and 33 points through 56 outings in his first full NHL season.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Scores go-ahead goal

    Rossi scored a goal in Monday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    Rossi's third-period tally was the first of two in a span of 1:01 that gave the Wild a commanding lead. He had gone four contests without a point and seven games without a goal entering Monday. It's likely just growing pains for the 22-year-old, who is up to 14 tallies, 29 points, 96 shots on net and 37 PIM through 52 outings. As long as Rossi maintains a top-six role and power-play time, he should remain an effective secondary scorer for the Wild at a level that can help in most fantasy formats.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Scores goal, assist

    Rossi scored a goal on three shots and picked up an assist in a 7-3 defeat to Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    Rossi broke out of his five-game pointless streak with his fourth multi-point game of the season. During his slump, the 22-year-old winger was still firing the puck with regularity with 12 shots on net in his last five outings. Even with Connor Bedard (jaw) shelved, Rossi is still chasing the Chicago phenom for the rookie scoring lead with 26 points through 44 games.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Goal, two assists in OT win

    Rossi tallied a goal and two assists in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canadiens.

    Rossi set up Matt Boldy's opening goal on a first-period power play before extending Minnesota's lead to 2-0 later in the frame, beating Sam Montembeault with a wrister. Rossi would add another assist in the third period, giving him his first career three-point game. The 22-year-old Rossi has started to play up to his offensive potential in his second NHL season -- he now has 11 goals and 21 points through 31 games while working on Minnesota's second line and top power-play unit.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Nets insurance tally

    Rossi scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Kraken.

    Rossi tallied at 12:34 of the third period to double the Wild's lead to 2-0. The 22-year-old has three goals and two assists over his last six games. He was moved down to the second line, swapping places with Joel Eriksson Ek in a lineup shuffle Sunday. Rossi may benefit from the move if it gets some of the attention off of him and onto the top line. He's produced nine goals, seven assists, 51 shots on net, 12 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 26 appearances this season.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Contributes assist

    Rossi notched an assist and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Flames.

    Rossi has three goals and five helpers over his last nine games. The 22-year-old center rang a shot off the post early in the second period, with the rebound falling to Kirill Kaprizov for the goal. Rossi is thriving on the Wild's top line and has already set a new career high with 23 appearances, in which the 2020 first-round draft pick has racked up eight goals, seven assists, 46 shots on net, 12 PIM and a plus-6 rating.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Lights lamp twice in Sunday's win

    Rossi scored two goals, one the game-winner on the power play, in Sunday's 4-1 victory over Chicago.

    In a matchup of top rookies, Rossi got the better of Connor Bedard as he potted Minnesota's first two goals of the game in the first period. Rossi's eight tallies on the season is second among rookies to Bedard's 11, and new head coach John Hynes has the 22-year-old skating on the Wild's top line between Kirill Kaprizov and Mats Zuccarello. Rossi's 14 points in 22 contests is already solid, but he could take his production to another level if he hangs onto that assignment.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Lends helper Friday

    Rossi picked up an assist and two PIM in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Rossi set up Kirill Kaprizov's second-period tally. The 22-year-old Rossi has a goal and three helpers during a four-game point streak. That hot stretch coincides with his move to the top line between Kaprizov and Mats Zuccarello. Rossi's minutes continue to be limited compared to his linemates, but he's holding his own in the best place to be in the Wild's lineup. The Austrian center has 11 points, 35 shots on net, four PIM and a plus-2 rating through 18 contests.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Provides only offense in loss

    Rossi scored his sixth goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Senators.

    The 22-year-old opened the scoring midway through the second period by tipping home a Brock Faber point shot, but it was all the offense Minnesota could muster -- even in the shootout, the Wild went 0-for-3. Rossi had only one assist in 21 career NHL games coming into the season, but the ninth overall pick in the 2020 Draft appears ready to break out, picking up nine points in the first 16 games of 2023-24.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Records two points in loss

    Rossi provided a goal and an assist in Minnesota's 5-3 loss to New Jersey on Thursday.

    Rossi found the back of the net early in the third period to cut the Devils' lead to 3-2 and helped out on Jake Middleton's score later in the frame to once again pull Minnesota within one at 4-3. Rossi's efforts didn't change the outcome of Thursday's contest, but it did add to his hot run -- he has three goals and five points over his last five contests. Overall in 2023-24, he has four markers and six points in 10 games.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Stretches point streak

    Rossi scored among four shots in Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Capitals.

    Rossi was denied on his shootout attempt, but what matters most to fantasy managers is that he was able to extend his point streak to three games with the even-strength tally to open the scoring in the contest. The 22-year-old is occupying a spot on the third line, albeit with responsibilities on the No. 2 power-play unit.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: First NHL goal

    Rossi scored his first NHL goal in a 7-4 loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Rises to top level

    Rossi, along with eight other players, was recalled from AHL Iowa on Thursday.

    Adam Beckman, Steven Fogarty, Nicolas Petan, Nick Swaney, Samuel Walker, Daemon Hunt, Dakota Mermis and Zane McIntyre were also promoted from the minors to serve as the Wild's black aces.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Back in AHL

    Rossi was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Friday.

    Rossi was drafted ninth overall in 2020 and struggled with the after-effects of COVID in 2020-21. He spent most of 2022-23 with Iowa, scoring 16 times and adding 34 assists in 51 games. He struggled offensively at the NHL level this season, picking up only one helper in 19 games.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Joins big club

    Rossi was recalled from AHL Iowa on Sunday.

    Rossi struggled at the NHL level to begin the 2022-23 season, logging just one assist in 16 appearances. He's smoked his competition in the AHL, racking up 16 goals and 50 points in 51 games. With Joel Eriksson Ek (lower body) considered week-to-week, Rossi should see some playing time as the Wild gear up for the postseason.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Excelling at AHL lowa

    Rossi has 26 points in 25 AHL games since his demotion, Thomas Williams of reports.

    Rossi, who was selected ninth overall in 2020, had only one assist in 16 games with the Wild before he was sent to the AHL to regain his confidence. Well, it sure looks like he is playing with plenty of confidence, as he has three goals and 10 points during his current seven-game points streak. Do not be surprised if Rossi is recalled from the minors in the near future.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Shipped down to minors

    Rossi was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Monday.

    Rossi has been a healthy scratch in four straight games so his demotion shouldn't come as a shock. Prior to being benched, the 21-year-old center was struggling through a seven-game pointless streak and a season-long goal drought. If the Austrian can rediscover his scoring touch in the minors, he should be brought back up to Minnesota sooner rather than later.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Sitting Saturday

    Rossi is a healthy scratch Saturday against Carolina, per Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

    Rossi has struggled so far this season with just one assist through 16 games. Minnesota has been patient with its top prospect as he adjusts to the NHL, but he'll get a breather against a good Carolina team. Nicolas Petan will slot into the lineup in Rossi's absence.

  • Wild's Marco Rossi: Gets first career point

    Rossi registered an assist in a 4-1 win against Montreal on Tuesday.

    It was Rossi's first career point. In addition to the assist, he has five shots, three blocks and two hits in nine games while averaging 11:39 of ice time. He was the No. 9 pick in the 2020 draft and has plenty of offensive potential, but for now his role with the team is probably too small for him to contribute regularly.
