Minnesota Wild forward Kirill Kaprizov added to his highlight reel on Tuesday night as he delivered a between-the-legs pass to feed Mats Zuccarello.

In the second period, Kaprizov worked deep in the Arizona Coyotes zone. As Victor Rask was battling for a puck along the boards, the puck came free onto the stick of a streaking Kaprizov. Kaprizov went between the legs and put the puck on the tape of Zuccarello in front of the Arizona net.

Zuccarello was stopped by Coyotes goaltender Adin Hill, but it doesn't detract from the fact Kaprizov has become a star in his rookie season with the Wild.

With the 23-year-old producing highlights like this and producing at a historic rate, the Wild may finally have the superstar they've been craving.
