      Wild's Ryan Suter: Contributing never-before-seen offense

      Suter notched the primary assists on both Jason Zucker goals Thursday in an overtime win against Carolina, adding two PIM and a plus-2 rating. With 14 points in 15 games, Suter's doing things on the offensive side of the ice that we've never seen from him before. Sure, most of it has been concentrated in the area of helpers, which can be fickle, but this nearly point-per-game pace is still quite the surprise. The 30-year-old blueliner has found the scoresheet in six of the last seven games while continuing to play his typical heavy minutes.

      Wild's Ryan Suter: Delivers helper Tuesday

      Suter notched an assist in a 5-3 win over the Jets on Tuesday night. Suter is averaging 26:47 TOI per game, which is currently the third most in the NHL this season. With that much time on the ice, he should continue to get plenty of chances to work his magic with the puck. While Suter has never been much of a scorer, he is highly proficient in setting the table for goals -- the blueliner has 10 helpers and that has him on pace for 58 assists in 2015-16, which would be a career high in the unlikely event that he sustains the lofty setup production.

      Wild's Ryan Suter: Builds on early offensve surge with two goals

      Suter scored his first two goals of the season Tuesday in a win over Edmonton. He opened the scoring in the first period, then helped the Wild mount a third-period comeback with his game-tying tally nearly midway through that frame. Despite having missed the scoresheet in consecutive games prior to Tuesday's action, Suter's off to a surprisingly fast start offensively, having racked up eight points in nine games. He also scored as many goals Tuesday as he did in 77 games last season. Still, considering his career high is a solid, but non-elite 46 points, expect Suter to balance out this hot start with some cooler stretches.

      Wild's Ryan Suter: Records sixth assist of 2015-16 season

      Suter picked up an assist in Thursday's contest with Columbus. Suter has scored in five of six games this season, with a grand total of six points. His assist Thursday came after dancing down the left wing boards and feeding Zach Parise on the backdoor. The play was a reminder of Suter's offensive talent, which has been on display much more often this season than in previous years. Suter's average time on ice is 25:52 this season, about three minutes fewer than he has played since joining the Wild in 2012-13, and this reduced ice time may mean fresher legs for Suter and allow him more license to get involved in the offense.

      Wild's Ryan Suter: Collects two helpers in win

      Suter collected two assists in a game-high 24:07 of ice time in Saturday's win over the Blues. A strong showing for Suter, who also finished with four blocked shots. Skating on the team's top defensive pairing and first power-play unit, expect another strong offensive season from Suter, who has piled on three helpers through two games thus far. Considering the 30-year-old has posted eight consecutive seasons between 30-50 points, you know what to expect from the 6'1" defensive force.

    • Could spike offensively with Jared Spurgeon

      News: Ryan Suter, a left-handed shot, could benefit offensively from Jared Spurgeon, a right-handed shot, playing on his right side. According to Wild head coach Mike Yeo, "That could open some things up through the neutral zone, but I would say more specifically the offensive zone - getting some pucks coming across to him, having somebody that would be on their forehand, that could help him and benefit him to create a little bit more offense."
      Analysis: Ryan Suter is the leader of a strong Minnesota defense that collectively allowed just 201 goals last season, tied with St. Louis for second best in the Western Conference en route to a plus-30 goal differential last season. Sutter has averaged 37.6 points per season since coming over to the Wild in 2012-13.
    • Potentially set for a reduction in ice time

      News: Minnesota's coaching staff wants to reduce Ryan Suter's ice time to a range of 24 to 26 minutes per game, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Suter has led the league in ice time the last three seasons.
      Analysis: Minnesota has had a goal of reducing Ryan Suter's minutes the last two seasons, but it never seems to happen when the games begin. However, the coaching staff appears to be gaining trust in younger defensemen like Jonas Brodin and Jared Spurgeon, so maybe Suter will finally get some much-deserved rest this season..
    • Wild's Suter Gets PP Assist

      News: Ryan Suter captured a power-play assist in Friday's Game 5 victory over the Blues.
      Analysis: Ryan Suter's first point of the postseason came when he set up Mikko Koivu, whose shot attempt deflected off the skate of the Blues' Jay Bouwmeester and into the net. The blueliner logged 27:19 of action Friday and is still viewed as the team's top defenseman, but his offensive production has slid this season. In the 82 games he's played (including the postseason), Suter has generated just two goals on 154 shots, resulting in a 1.2 percent shooting rate.
    • Wild To Hold Out Suter On Saturday

      News: Ryan Suter (rest) will not play Saturday against the Blues, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
      Analysis: Both the Blues and Wild are resting a number of key players with their playoff spots secure, while also exhibiting a bit of gamesmanship due to the high probability of the two teams facing each other in the first round. Ryan Suter will finish the regular season with two goals and 38 points over 77 games.
    • Wild's Suter Sets Up Two In Win

      News: Ryan Suter was credited with two assists and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blues.
      Analysis: With 33 assists in 68 games, Ryan Suter is on track to surpass his production from a season earlier in the category, despite averaging less ice time and already missing four games due to injury. However, it's looking likely that he'll fail to crack the 40-point mark for a second straight season, due mainly to some rotten luck in the goal-scoring department. He's lit the lamp just twice this season, with his 1.5 percent shooting rate representing his lowest mark since his rookie year with Nashville in 2005-06.
