Travis Roche (4) 14 GP 8-5-13 29 PIM +5
Clearly a class player in the AHL, and it’s only a matter of time before he cracks the Wild’s NHL roster permanently. Leads the AHL in defender goals, and is amongst the leaders in both defender and rookie scoring. Posted 1g 2a in his last game vs. Manitoba November 14. Turning in the sort of dominant performance needed to graduate to the next level. Was called up for one game vs. Nashville, on Halloween.
Kyle Wanvig (5) 14 GP 2-4-6 31 PIM -1
Has seen an up-and-down start to the start of his pro career. Scored has first AHL goal just 2 minutes in the Houston’s season opener. Took another 12 games and 5 weeks until he lit the lamp again vs. Manitoba Nov. 12. Offensive game is coming along a bit slower than expected, but his size and grit is holding him in good stead in the AHL game.
Derek Gustafson (7) 5 GP 3-1-1 2.38 GAA .920%
