Brodin has 18 blocks and four hits while logging 20:22 of ice time in his last 10 games.
Not known for his offensive prowess, Brodin has just one assist in his past 10 games while shouldering a heavy load. The Swede has produced in other ways, logging an average of 20:32 of ice time and producing 122 blocks. With just 17 points in 76 games this campaign, it's hard to trust the 25-year-old from a fantasy aspect.
Brodin logged 21:40 of ice time and had one block in Sunday's home loss to Nashville.
Although Brodin didn't provide any points, he skated in a total of 41:12 and had five blocks in a back-to-back Saturday and Sunday. The Swede started to get some offense going, notching three assists in his past five games to run his season point total up to 16. Head coach Bruce Boudreau seems to have confidence in the 25-year-old, so expect him to continue to log major minutes on the back end.
Brodin assisted on both Wild goals in a 2-1 overtime with against the Blues on Sunday.
Brodin had gone without a point in his previous seven contests before this big spike in offense. In February, he has three assists and 16 blocked shots in 13 games. Needless to say, he's better known for his defense, but he can chip in a point or two at times, making him useful in some deeper formats.
Brodin has three assists, 27 blocked shots and is averaging 21:24 of ice time since the new year.
Known for his defensive specialties, Brodin has certainly lived up to the bill with a whopping 27 blocks in 18 games since the new year. As evidenced by his three assists, the Swede can chip in every once in a while with offense, but his value lies on the other end of the rink. The 25-year-old should be nowhere near your fantasy lineup, but the Wild still value the defenseman.
Brodin has two assists, 19 blocked shots and is a minus-2 since the new year.
Even though Brodin hasn't produced as much offensively, he has been a goalie's best friend, racking up 19 blocked shots in his past 11 games. The Wild still clearly value the 25-year-old defenseman, as evidenced by his 20:32 of ice time per game.
Brodin failed to record a point in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Flames.
The 25-year-old's current pace has him recording a point every fourth game, making him a high-risk fantasy play by most standards. However, Brodin was able to make a minor dent in the box score with his efforts, tallying a shot on goal and blocking three more. The Swede also dished out a hit and picked up a minor penalty in the loss. On the season, he has three goals and seven points in 28 games.
Brodin went minus-4 in Tuesday's 4-3 home loss to the Coyotes.
Brodin was on the ice for more Arizona goals than any other player, and what's troubling is that he's not producing enough offense to compensate for the occasional off-night in the defensive zone. Brodin has three goals and four assists over 24 games, and being left off the power play has squashed what little fantasy value he had to begin with.
Brodin posted a goal, two points, a plus-4 rating and five shots on goal in a 5-2 victory against the Ducks on Friday.
The multi-point night snapped a five-game pointless streak and doubled his point total for the season. Brodin's had a lot of negative plus-minus nights heading into this one, but the plus-4 rating Friday erases all that in one fell swoop. He's now at plus-2 for the season. Recently, Brodin is getting a lot more shots to the net, so don't be surprised if this is the beginning of a scoring spree.
Brodin recorded an empty-net shorthanded goal and four blocked shots in Saturday's 3-2 home win over the Avalanche.
Brodin helped the Wild limit the damage against one of the league's most feared offenses, though his points-per-game output (0.20) through 10 games trails his career average (0.25) through seven seasons. While that may not seem like a substantial deviation on paper, it could be the difference of whether or not Brodin's even worth rostering in your fantasy league.
Brodin had two blocks but was a minus-1 in Thursday's loss at Colorado. He did not have a shot on goal or assist.
Brodin didn't get any time on the power play, which is worrisome, but he did get 2:59 of ice time on the penalty kill. Brodin at age 25 could bounce back to the career-high 25 points he scored in 2016-17, but he'll need to get more power-play ice time.
Brodin picked up two assists with two shots on goal, one blocked shot and a plus-5 rating in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Avalanche.
While both his helpers came at even strength, Brodin did lead the Wild in ice time with the man advantage, skating 7:18 on the power play. That was a result of Ryan Suter not being in the lineup, but if Brodin does see a jump in his power-play role, the 25-year-old should be able to top the career-high 25 points he scored in 2016-17.
Brodin scored his sixth goal of the season Saturday against the Sharks, his first goal since late January.
Brodin last scored Jan. 25 against Pittsburgh, and he finishes the season with six goals and 21 points in 73 games. It is the first time Brodin has played more than 70 games in three seasons. His offensive ceiling isn't very high so it's unlikely he'll ever score a lot of points, but he's very dependable in his own end. He finishes the season with a career-high plus-23 rating.
Brodin picked up an assist against the Ducks on Wednesday.
Brodin now has points in three straight games (all helpers), while averaging 23:41 of ice time. The Swede should continue to eat up big minutes for the Wild with Jared Spurgeon (hamstring) and Ryan Suter (ankle) sidelined.

The 24-year-old defenseman missed the previous nine games with a hand injury, but he showed no lingering signs of the affliction Tuesday.

He has just 15 points through 54 points and doesn't receive consistent power-play time.
Brodin (hand) has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Blues.
Brodin missed nine games with this injury, and the Wild will be glad to have him back. The Swede hasn't been a huge offensive contributor, as he has 15 points and 52 shots on net in 53 games. However, the 24-year-old has a sizable role in Minnesota, averaging 21:22 of ice time with 101 blocked shots.
Brodin (hand) will play this week, according to Wild coach Bruce Boudreau.
Minnesota has four games scheduled before next Monday, so Brodin should be able to return for at least one of those. The team's 10th overall draft selection from 2011 does not check out as a can't-miss fantasy commodity, but he's blocked 101 shots to complement a plus-19 rating and 15 points through 53 contests, thus qualifying as a decent two-way defender for the Wild.
Brodin (hand) participated in the morning skate Sunday, and general manager Chuck Fletcher said he was hopeful Brodin would return within the next seven days, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old has missed the last eight games with his hand fracture, but his recovery has stayed on course, and it appears the original 3-to-4 week prognosis was spot on. Brodin was a consistent force on Minnesota's blue line, averaging 21:21 of ice time and blocking 101 shots before his injury, and should slot back onto the second pairing when he returns.

Brodin sustained his injury in Tuesday's game against the Blues, once he was checked from Vladimir Sobotoka in the second period. The initial prognosis wasn't so gloomy, but the Wild delved further into the matter and determined that the Swede would miss at least the remainder of February -- 10 games at a minimum. He should be on IR before long.
Brodin (upper body) is expected to miss at least a week and could miss all of the team's upcoming five-game homestand, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.
Brodin departed Tuesday's game against the Blues early because of the ailment, cutting his usual ice time in half. He's also apparently suffered an injury that will cost him additional time, leaving the door open for Mike Reilly and Gustav Olofsson to see additional ice time. More information should surface as he nears a return, though next Thursday against the Capitals seems to be the earliest target date at this point.
