During the Minnesota Wild’s smashing victory over the Montreal Canadiens earlier today, Kirill “The Thrill” Kaprizov put himself among some good company. Kaprizov collected 2 assists to put himself 4th among active players to his 100 career points. It took Kirill just 92 NHL games to reach this feat, the same amount of games as Connor McDavid.
Those 100 points are made up of 44 goals and 56 assists over the course of 2 seasons. His little point streak recently has really helped him get there. Over the last 9 games, Kirill has had at least a point in all of them and he upped his career point count by 17. Ever since that faithful first game a little over a year ago where he scored the OT winner, this kid has just been non-stop. Now, all of a sudden, he’s at 100 points. Crazy.
Like I said those two points came in assists from Minnesota’s 8-2 win over Montreal. Kirill registered helpers on Mats Zuccarello’s 2nd period goal and Matt Boldy’s 3rd period PPG. Minnesota isn’t doing too bad. They’re 25-10-3 on the season and now they’ll be off till Friday when they play the Rangers. One reason they’re hanging in there pretty well is Kirill “The Thrill” himself.
