Now, he has a team fresh off its first playoff series win in more than a decade and a new scoring weapon.

Yeo believes Thomas Vanek will help give his offense, a much needed boost, despite the former Gopher taking some heat for not playing well for Montreal in the playoffs.

Mike Yeo/Wild Head Coach: “When you can add players personnel wise that can bring that kind of skill, bring that kind of creativity and that kind of ability, that's going to increase the scoring. It's not just about that player. It's what they do for the players they're laying with as well.”
