Koivu scored a pair of goals and assisted on another in Saturday's win over the Kings.

That's four goals and six points in five games for Koivu, who has potted the game-winner in back-to-back outings. The 32-year-old now has 14 goals on the season -- his highest total since the 2010-11 season (17). He's producing consistently on the second line for a surging Minnesota team, so keep him rolling.

Koivu potted the game-winning goal Friday against calgary.

It was the second goal in four games for Koivu, who now has 44 points in 75 games on the season. The second-line center has appeared on the scoresheet in six of his last nine games and has racked up 15 of his 44 points (34 percent) on the power play. He may not reach 50 points as he did last season, but the 32-year-old remains a solid assist man who can be depended on in most formats.

Koivu notched a power-play assist on the Wild's lone goal in Friday's loss to the Ducks.

The assist gives the 32-year-old his eighth consecutive 40-point season, excluding the 2012-13 lockout season. While he's still poised to fall short of his 54-point output from last year, Koivu remains a worthy lineup addition in most leagues that employ multiple forward spots.

Koivu picked up two helpers in Friday's 4-0 win over the Oilers. He now has 11 points in his last nine games.The captain has been nothing short of spectacular in February, leading the charge with goaltender Devan Dubnyk in getting the Wild back into serious playoff contention. His 37 points in 58 games are still disappointing in comparison to the 54 in 65 contests last year, but he's been playing great of late and can safely be deployed by owners at all times in all but the shallowest formats.

Koivu assisted on both Wild goals Thursday in a 2-1 win over the Panthers.One of the helpers came on the power play. Koivu's been on and off recently, as he's got three multi-point games in his last eight, but hasn't appeared on the scoresheet in the other five. Still, that does add up to seven points in that span, and they've all actually come in the last five games.

Koivu assisted on three goals, two on the power-play, in Monday's 5-3 win over the Canucks.After three games off the scoresheet, Koivu has registered five points in his last three contests. The 31-year-old is now up to 31 points through 52 games, but he's on pace for his least productive season since his rookie year partially due to poor luck that's resulted in a career-worst 6.0% shooting percentage. Still, he could be worthy of consideration if his recent play--10 points in his last 10 games--keeps up.

Koivu scored a goal on seven shots, added an assist, went plus-2 and picked up two PIM in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks.

The seven shots represent his highest total since Dec. 31, when he also fired seven in a loss to Columbus. Koivu had been held off the scoresheet in three straight coming in, which has been part of a general trend of reduced production. Even with the nice night, he's easily on his worst scoring pace since his rookie season.

Koivu contributed an assist on the Wild's lone goal in Monday's loss to the Blue Jackets.

The 31-year-old is riding a three-game assist streak, with he and linemate Zach Parise reestablishing a rapport following the latter's recent absence due to the death of his father. Even so, a career-worst 5.4 shooting rate has still resulted in Koivu's value taking a sizable dip this season, as he's potted only six goals in 45 games. He could be in danger of surpassing double digits in the category for the first time since his rookie season of 2005-06.

Koivu picked up the primary assists on the first two goals of Thursday's 7-0 sheathing of the Sabres.

Koivu had been struggling along with the rest of the Wild over their six-game losing streak, having gone minus-6 with two assists over that span. But like much of the rest of the team, he broke out in a big way Thursday. His fantasy owners will have to hope this is the start of him turning the page, as Koivu's barely averaging half a point per game.

Coach Mike Yeo confirmed Koivu (undisclosed) would play Thursday against the Blackhawks, KFAN 100.3 FM reports.

An undisclosed injury forced Koivu to depart from Wednesday's practice early, but it wasn't serious enough to knock him out of game action. He'll be back on the top line with Jason Pominville and Jason Zucker, the latter of whom replaces Zach Parise, who has left the team following the death of his father.
