St. Paul, Minnesota – Jason Zucker of Las Vegas had his greatest game this season with blazing speed while working hard digging for pucks, rocketing a puck on the top of the left post and setting up teammate Mikko Koivu for the first goal of the game in the NHL Minnesota Wild’s 3-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets. Jason was a bright shining star on the ice in front of his older brother Evan who brought his Nevada Storm bantam ice hockety team to the game. The crowd was 19,022 at the Excel Energy Center.
