  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Recovery timetable extended

    Spurgeon (lower body) is unlikely to return for several weeks, per Michael Russo of The Athletic.

    Spurgeon's recovery timetable has been extended into mid-January at the earliest. His condition will continue to be monitored by the team until he is deemed fit to play by team medical staff. Prior to his injury, the 27-year-old recorded one goal through three December appearances.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Won't play in Winter Classic

    Spurgeon (lower body) won't be available for the Winter Classic on Jan. 1 against the Blues, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Head coach Dean Evason confirmed neither Spurgeon nor Joel Eriksson Ek will be available for the traditional Winter Classic. The 32-year-old Spurgeon has been expected to return close to New Year's Day, but now it seems he'll have to wait a bit longer to get back on the ice.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Lands on IR

    Spurgeon (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

    Spurgeon was already expected to miss some time due to injury but his placement on IR will likely mean a longer timetable of recovery is necessary for the 32-year-old. His return will be anticipated in the new year -- through his last four appearances, Spurgeon had generated three points from assists.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Out for awhile, no surgery needed

    Spurgeon (lower body) does not require surgery but his absence is "not short term" according to head coach Dean Evason, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.

    It's always great news when a player avoids the need to have surgery, but it sounds like Spurgeon will be out a matter of weeks and not days after suffering the injury Thursday against visiting Buffalo. At this point, it's safe to say the 32-year-old will be out at least through the Christmas break and probably won't return to the ice until the calendar flips to 2022.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Aggravates past injury

    Spurgeon aggravated the lower-body injury that kept him out of eight contests during Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Sabres, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Head coach Dean Evason ruled out Spurgeon for Saturday's game against the Panthers, but it's unclear how much additional time the defenseman could miss. Jordie Benn figures to enter the lineup to replace Spurgeon. The 32-year-old had an assist in Thursday's contest, giving him 11 points in 21 games this year.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Plucks three apples in loss

    Spurgeon recorded three assists, three shots on net and two PIM in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Spurgeon was held off the scoresheet in his first two games back from a lower-body injury, but he broke out of his slump Sunday. One of his three assists in the game came on the power play. Spurgeon is up to 11 points (three on the power play), 33 shots on net, 25 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating in 20 contests. With a top-four role and power-play time, the 32-year-old should have some appeal in fantasy.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Expected to play Thursday

    Spurgeon (lower body) took part in Thursday's practice and is expected to suit up against the Sharks, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Spurgeon has missed the last eight games with a lower-body issue but should be back in action Thursday. The veteran blueliner has eight points with a plus-5 rating through 17 games this season. He's expected to replace Matt Dumba (illness) in Thursday's lineup.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Targeting Wednesday return

    Spurgeon (lower body) could be ready to play against San Jose on Thursday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Spurgeon -- who is traveling with the team for its four-game road trip -- has notched eight points in 17 games this season while averaging 20:28 of ice time, including 3:08 with the man advantage. Even if Spurgeon does suit up Thursday, it still rules him out versus Edmonton on Tuesday.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Expected to practice soon

    Spurgeon (lower body) will join the Wild on next week's road trip to practice, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    The 32-year-old has a chance to return to the lineup during that four-game road trip. Spurgeon's missed six games since suffering the lower-body injury Nov. 20, at which point he'd tallied three goals and five assists through 17 contests this season.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Week-to-week

    Spurgeon (lower body) is week-to-week, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Spurgeon suffered the injury Saturday against Florida and will be forced to miss multiple games as a result. The 31-year-old has produced at around his usual rate this season with eight points, 28 shots, 14 hits and 23 blocks in 17 games.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Ruled out for Sunday

    Spurgeon (lower body) won't play Sunday versus the Lightning after suffering an injury Saturday against the Panthers, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Spurgeon's injury is at least serious enough to keep him out until Wednesday at the earliest. The 31-year-old was injured in the first period Saturday. Head coach Dean Evason indicated Calen Addison would be called up, but he may not be able to get to Florida in time for Sunday's 5:00 p.m. EST puck drop.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Unlikely to return

    Spurgeon (lower body) was injured in the first period and is unlikely to return to Saturday's game versus the Panthers.

    There was nothing obvious as to how Spurgeon got hurt, but it's unlikely he gets back on the ice Saturday. The Wild play Sunday versus the Lightning, which is a bit of a quick turnaround for Spurgeon to heal up. If he can't play, Jordie Benn could enter the lineup or Calen Addison could be called up from AHL Iowa.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Attempts to spark comeback

    Spurgeon scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Spurgeon got the Wild on the board at 1:20 of the third period, but their comeback effort fell short. The 31-year-old defenseman has notched two goals and four helpers in his last five games. For the year, he's at eight points, 26 shots, 13 hits, 15 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in 13 contests.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Adds pair of helpers

    Spurgeon recorded two assists and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Spurgeon helped out on a Joel Eriksson Ek power-play goal in the first period as well as Kevin Fiala's even-strength tally in the second. Both of Spurgeon's multi-point efforts this year have come in the last three games. The blueliner has two goals, five assists, 23 shots, 15 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in 12 appearances for a Wild team that doesn't hesitate to see its defensemen join in on offense.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Two-point night in win

    Spurgeon scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 5-4 shootout win over Pittsburgh.

    He fired five shots. Spurgeon has five points, including two goals, in 10 games. Yes, he's on a 40-point pace and with Ryan Suter long departed, Spurgeon might actually get back to that level. Just beware of his inflated shooting percentage (11.8) -- it's well above his career 7.8, so some regression is expected.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Snags helper in OT win

    Spurgeon recorded a power-play assist and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Jets.

    One of the shots he blocked briefly sent Spurgeon to the locker room, but he didn't take long to return. He also assisted on the first of Joel Eriksson Ek's three goals in the game. The helper was Spurgeon's first point in three contests this year. He's added six blocks, four shots on net and a minus-1 rating while playing a significant top-four role on the blue line.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Nabs power-play helper

    Spurgeon recorded a power-play assist, five hits and three blocked shots in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 7.

    Spurgeon had the secondary helper on Kirill Kaprizov's second-period tally. In seven playoff outings, Spurgeon managed just three assists (two on the power play), which came in the last two games. The Wild captain also produced a minus-6 rating, 21 blocked shots, 14 hits and seven shots on net, as he was tasked with mostly defensive duties.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Generates pair of assists

    Spurgeon recorded two assists, five blocked shots and two shots on net in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Golden Knights in Game 6.

    Spurgeon had a hand in tallies by Kevin Fiala (power play) and Nick Bjugstad (even strength) in the Wild's three-goal third period. The 31-year-old Spurgeon had been silenced offensively through the first five games of the series. Spurgeon has posted two helpers, a minus-4 rating, six shots on net, nine hits and 18 blocked shots in six playoff outings.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Back in there Sunday

    Spurgeon (rest) will return to the lineup for Sunday's Game 1 against the Golden Knights, Sarah McLellan of Star Tribune Sports reports.

    No surprise here, as Spurgeon's absence from Thursday's lineup was purely precautionary. Spurgeon had seven goals and 18 assists over 54 regular-season appearances as part of a deep Wild defense corps. He has eight goals and 13 assists in 48 previous playoff appearances.
