This would be the logical place to write in-depth about last night's pathetic loss to the Detroit Red Wings, but let's just move on from that, shall we? Let's not talk about the embarrassing effort showed by the team and forget it even happened. Let's focus on something positive like Minnesota Wild prospect Jason Zucker.
Zucker, a forward for Team USA in this year's World Junior Championships, is a natural scorer. He scored the second goal in last night's victory over the Finnish team and shows huge upside. After the WJC he will return to the Denver University Pioneers, where he leads the nation in goals by a freshman with 14 in 18 games. Jason was picked 59th overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft and this looks to be a steal. My best guess is that Zucker will sign with the Wild after this season and spend 2011-12 in Houston before debuting with the Wild in 2012-2013.
