Minnesota Wild center Mikael Granlund picked up his second goal of the year last night in 3-2 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals. Granlund has two goals in his three games… Granlund is playing well. He has 12 points in 17 games this season for the Wild, but nine points over his last nine contests. The Fin’ is starting to come into his own after only eight points in 27 games last year as a rookie. You can look to Jason Pominville for his success. Granlund is centering a line with the red hot Pominville, who has 10 goals this season. The line of Granlund, Pominville and Nino Niederreiter have 15 of the Wild’s 45 goals to start the year and are a combined plus 15. Mikael Granlund and Jason Pominville have combined for 16 points over their last six games together. Granlund has seven of those points. (Getty Images) Granlund was probably drafted near the later rounds of your fantasy hockey draft last year and chances are many didn’t bother with him this year as he is owned in only 14 percent of Yahoo! leagues. It’s a number that has doubled over the past week with the success from the 21-year old. Mikael Granlund won’t get you many goals, but as long as he keeps setting up Pominville he should be more than worthy of a waver wire add. Since being put on a line together, both have found instant chemistry and a pass first Granlund is exactly what the former Sabre likes. Granlund has averaged about a block and a hit per game so don’t count on too much from him in those categories, but expect the points and the powerplay production to keep coming. The ninth overall pick in the 2010 NHL draft is definitely worth a fantasy hockey add especially in keeper leagues.
