Wild prospect Marco Rossi was on the ice during today's prospects practice and is 100 percent healthy.
He met with reporters afterwards, making it clear that he wants to be on the Minnesota Wild, not Iowa Wild, when the season starts in October.
“My goal is to make the NHL. I know how good I am. I know I can make it,” Rossi said. "But I have to prove myself."

The 19-year-old center has been through a lot in the last year. Rossi had Covid-19 last November, then after undergoing a number of tests, he was diagnosed with myocarditis, which is inflammation of the heart.
The Wild selected Rossi with the 9th overall pick in the 2020 Draft.
