The Golden Knights have been the feel-good story of the NHL this season.

In other Wild news Thursday morning, the team re-signed Nate Prosser for a third tour-of-duty in St. Paul.  The Elk River-native was waived by the St Louis Blues. 

Prosser has played 282 games for the Wild over the last eight seasons. 

He played just one game for St. Louis this season before being waived, which paved the way for his return to the Wild.
