Although Marcus Johansson has more experience serving as a winger, the Wild might use him as a center.

Minnesota was hurting for centers even before trading Eric Staal for Johansson, so it makes sense that they'd attempt to use Johansson up the middle. This trade is perhaps a little unusual for the Wild given their need for centers, but adding Johansson does make the Wild younger. Johansson is 29-years-old compared to Staal's 35-years-old. “I think Marcus fits well with us,” Wild GM Bill Guerin said. “He’s going to get a lot of opportunity. (Coach Dean Evason) knows him very well from (his time with the Washington Capitals) and believes he can be an impactful center man. He’s going to get that opportunity.” Guerin also spoke about the need to mix things up, which was perhaps part of the motivation for this trade. Sep 17 10:05 am (EST)
