The Predators have acquired Mikael Granlund from the Wild for Kevin Fiala.
The Predators were likely looking to add a centre like Matt Duchene or Kevin Hayes but pivoted to Granlund when those two were traded to Columbus and Winnipeg respectively. Granlund is a player who plays on the wing as well and is know primarily as a playmaker, but is on-pace for his third straight 20-plus goal season. Granlund seems like a player who will either bump Kyle Turris down the lineup and centre the second line or play on Turris’ wing.
Granlund (groin) will return to the Wild lineup on Tuesday.
Granlund has been sidelined by a groin injury since the season opener, but will draw back in tonight vs. Vancouver after a five-game absence. Granlund, the Wild’s leading scorer last season, will be back on a line with Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker.

Granlund (groin) will be a game-time decision on Friday.
Granlund has been bothered by a groin injury since the season opener but he was back on the ice for Thursday’s practice and skated on the top-line and top power-play unit, making him a game-time decision for tomorrow. Monitor his status during the pre-game skate, but it looks like he will return and it’s a huge addition for the Wild who are quite banged up right now.
Granlund (groin) had a “good skate” on Monday.
Granlund has missed the last three games with a groin injury that he was dealing with in training camp. Granlund returned to the ice on the weekend and had a “good skate” this morning, which suggests he might not be far from returning to the lineup. The Wild are off until Friday, so monitor his status as the week progresses.
