NHL Rumors: Brock Boeser to Minnesota Wild Heating Up

Since Brock Boeser's name has entered the rumor mill, the Vancouver Canucks winger has been linked to the Minnesota Wild. Now, that rumor is only heating up, as the Wild are reportedly making a bigger push to bring in the star winger.

It would be big for the Wild to bring in the hometown kid before the playoffs, as he would give their top six a notable boost. The 25-year-old has had a bit of a rough year for his standards, however, as he has seven goals to go along with 22 points in 31 games. Yet, fans know what he is capable of when playing at his best, so perhaps a change of scenery could spark him to regain his previous form.

Boeser could give the Wild some much-needed scoring, so it does make sense that he is on their radar.  With the Canucks looking to move him, we will have to wait and see if they decide to do business with Minnesota from here.
