Minnesota Wild head coach Dean Evason, goaltender Kaapo Kähkönen, and defenseman Brad Hunt met with the media, via Zoom, Friday afternoon before the start of the Arizona Coyotes series.


Evason spoke about his talk with Zach Parise following Parise being a healthy scratch for the first time in his career, Carson Soucy's play, the impact Ryan Hartman has on the team, what he sees in the Coyotes, Jordan Greenway's play this season, the key to Kähkönen's success, his thoughts on line pairing, if putting Parise in the same line as Kevin Fiala is a way to get Parise going this year, and how it has been to be on the road this year. 

Kähkönen discussed the departure of goaltender Alex Stalock, what change Stalock's departure will have on his game, what he like most about his game right now, how he has played so well on the road this year, and if he has chemistry with the Wild defenseman yet. 

Hunt talked about what he has done to stay playing ready, what the team has learned from the Las Vegas Knights series, team bonding on the road, and what happens in the player's lounge on the road.
