Ryan White shines in Wild debut. Five things to know about the new addition



The Wild gave up three future draft picks and a minor leaguer for a trade that appeared to be built around acquiring veteran forward Martin Hanzal from Arizona.


The second piece of the package traded from Arizona, however, stole the spotlight in the pair’s debut with the team Monday night at Xcel Energy Center. Forward Ryan White recorded his sixth career multi-point game in the Wild’s 5-4 overtime victory.

White assisted the Wild’s first goal in the first period and tied the game 3-3 with a goal in the second period. He was named the Second Star of the game.
