The NHL.com’s Jessi Pierce, who has ties to the Borderland, joined Dawn, J.J., Mike and Kris on Never On A Sunday to preview the Minnesota Wild’s 2021 season. Pierce, who also contributes to The Athletic, sees some growing pains in the Wild’s future – alongside an infusion of young talent.

Rookie Kirill Kaprizov is not the only fresh rookie face in the locker room; Marco Rossi, Minnesota’s 9th-overall NHL Draft selection, joins the squad as well. Though, Pierce says, an upper body injury has thrown Rossi’s timetable into question. Have we gained any insight into Rossi’s injury situation?

After an offseason trade saw goaltender Devan Dubnyk shipped out west to San Jose, the Wild penned Cam Talbot to a three-year, $11 million pact. What will Talbot bring to Minnesota?

The Minnesota Wild open the 2021 regular season in Los Angeles on January 14th.
