Shalom, Luke Kunin

Welcome the newest MOT to the NHL: Luke Kunin, who briefly joined Jason Zucker on the Minnesota Wild.

Kunin, 19, was the Wild’s first-round pick in 2016. He was called up due to injuries to several of the team’s forwards. He made his debut on Oct. 14 in the Wild’s 5-4 home opener overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. He played 13:53 in that one. He was reassigned to the American Hockey League right after the game, but he’ll be back.

Some stories on Kunin:

  • Minnesota Wild Prospect Camp 2017: Green Offense — Luke Kunin leads the charge on a team that features current Gopher Leon Bristedt and High School phenom Sam Huff
  • What Luke Kunin brings to the Minnesota Wild
  • Luke Kunin’s versatility excites Wild: Forward prospect ‘can play 200-foot game,’ had 19 goals for Wisconsin last season
  • From the September/October issue of the Jewish Sports Review: “After two seasons at Wisconsin, Luke Kunin, 191, 1 wing from Chesterfield, MO, signed with the Minnesota Wild and was assigned to the Iowa Wild (AHL) where he rifled in 5 goals with three assists for 8 points, endured 16 PMs [penalty minutes] and was assigned a +2 rating in 12 games.”
