Wild roll into Hurricanes matchup with momentum

As Nino Niederreiter looks to continue helping the Carolina Hurricanes' push toward ending their nine-year playoff drought, he can also potentially deliver a hit to his former team's postseason plans.

On Saturday night in Raleigh, N.C., the Minnesota Wild face Niederreiter for the first time since they traded him to the Hurricanes in this matchup of playoff hopefuls.

A long-time contributor and fan-favorite for the Wild, Niederreiter was losing ice time in his sixth season with the club when it dealt him to Carolina on Jan. 17 for Victor Rask. Though the move was tough for the veteran Swiss forward at the time, he's been reborn while becoming a key piece to the Hurricanes' cause.
