Marian Gaborik currently holds the Minnesota Wild franchise record for most single season goals with 42. Staal currently has 39 goals. Will he beat the record? It could happen. There are 7 games left and he needs 4 more goals. He had 13 goals over 13 games in February and as Boudreau said “Everything he’s touched has turned to gold.” Who doesn't want to see Staal in the Minnesota Wild record books?
