Minnesota Wild rookie Kirill Kaprizov is a highlight machine on ice. The Calder Trophy candidate continued his campaign on Friday night, recording two assists in the first period against the Arizona Coyotes.

After assisting on the Wild's first goal by Mats Zuccarello, Kaprizov was at it again later in the first period, going behind the net with a no-look pass to set up Nick Bjugstad.

The feed was Kaprizov's 13th helper of the lead, which leads all NHL rookies. The Wild own a 4-0 lead in the second period.
