Zach Parise was held off the scoresheet against the Maple Leafs after erupting for 10 points (eight goals, two assists) in his previous 11 games. Fellow forward Eric Staal scored his 10th goal on Saturday to move within two of team leader Parise heading into the contest versus Vancouver, against which he has a goal and an assist this season to boost his point total to 14 (five goals, nine assists) in 21 career encounters. Defenseman Matt Dumba, who also has 10 tallies this season, has been held off the scoresheet in back-to-back contests after notching five goals and as many assists during a seven-game point streak.

Vancouver bolstered its depth at forward on Monday by acquiring Josh Leivo from Toronto in exchange for fellow forward Michael Carcone of Utica of the American Hockey League. The 25-year-old Leivo recorded six points (four goals, two assists) in 27 games this season for the Maple Leafs, who needed to free up a roster space after William Nylander signed a six-year contract on Saturday. Carcone, 22, has scored six goals and set up 11 others in 20 games with the Comets in 2018-19.

Vancouver LW Loui Eriksson has collected 36 points (16 goals, 20 assists) in 38 career games against Minnesota.
