A look at how Minnesota Wild prospects have performed up-to-date this season, from NCAA to international play.
One Minnesota Wild prospect will be crowned a national champion, when St. Cloud State plays UMass in the NCAA championship at 6 p.m. CST on Saturday.
Sam Hentges, a 2018 draft pick, is a forward for St. Cloud State, while 2019 draft pick Filip Lindberg is the UMass goalie.
History will be made in the game, as neither school has ever won a national championship in its history.
Sam Hentges recorded an assist for St. Cloud State in its 5-4 win over Minnesota State in the semifinal. Hentges has recorded eight goals and nine assists in 28 games this season.
UMass goalie Filip Lindberg did not play in the Frozen Four semifinal due to COVID-19 contract tracing protocols, but he is scheduled to travel to Pittsburgh on Friday and could rejoin the team for the national championship.
Lindberg leads the NCAA in save percentage and goals-against average this season. The 2019 draft pick is 9-0-3 with a .958 save percentage and .976 goals-against average in his last 12 games. He stopped all 18 shots in a 4-0 win over Bemidji State to help UMass advance to the Frozen Four.
Matt Boldy is expected to make his Iowa Wild debut on Friday night, as Iowa hosts the Chicago Wolves. Boldy signed a three year-entry level contract with the Wild last week. The 2019 first round pick recorded 31 points in 22 games for Boston College this season, leading the team in goals, assists, points, power play points and shots.
Adam Beckman recorded two goals and one assist this week in three games for the Spokane Chiefs in the WHL. In eight games this season, Beckman has four goals and three assists and he is tied for the third most shots on goal in the league.
