The Minnesota Wild know they've got something special in Kirill Kaprizov, and the Russian is now making the rest of America take notice.

As the Wild took on the Colorado Avalanche, one of Kaprizov's shifts in particular caught the eye of the Colorado commentators.

"Look at the ... look at the feet. Look it. I can't even imagine ... how talented you've gotta be."

While that scene in isolation had some suggesting the Avalanche commentators were overreacting, you can watch his full shift below and realize that they absolutely were not.

The Wild won the game comfortably 6-2, with Kaprizov finishing with two assists, and a new army of admirers in the Rocky Mountains.
