Minnesota Wild center Charlie Coyle out at least three weeks
The youngster has a sprained knee and will be sidelined for three to four weeks, the team announced.
Coyle suffered the injury in Saturday night's 4-3 overtime loss to Anaheim. Minnesota called up forward Jason Zucker from the team's AHL affiliate, the Iowa Wild, to take Coyle's spot.
In 20 games last season, Zucker, 21, compiled five total points.
The Wild are 0-2 to start the season, and Coyle has yet to contribute a point.
