Last year, Wild.com wanted help from our fans in the State of Hockey and beyond to help us select the Top Play of the Year. To do so, we needed you to pick the Top Play each week, so we could pit them against each other in the offseason in a single-elimination tournament. Last year's winner was Jason Zucker's first-career goals against Detroit. We had so much fun, we're going to do it again this year.
This season, we're getting help selecting the top play each week from our friends at Dairy Queen. Last week's winner was Jason Pominville, who tipped home a nice set up by Ryan Suter against the New York Rangers.
This week, we have a couple of snipes and a pretty passing play to choose from. Up first, Stephane Veilleux takes a pass in the slot and fires a laser past the Winnipeg Jets. Up next, the Wild makes three one-touch passes before Mikko Koivu taps home a power play goal against Winnipeg. Finally, Nino Niederreiter buries a wrister against his former team, the New York Islanders.
