Pateryn has racked up 15 hits and 14 blocks through nine games this season.
The 29-year-old isn't known for his offensive prowess -- he's gone pointless this season -- but he's chipped in other ways. Since returning Jan. 12, Pateryn has appeared in nine of 11 games, and he's averaged 15:44 of ice time in that span. Despite Pateryn's heavy play and steady playing time, the veteran should remain off fantasy radars going forward.
Pateryn has suited up in four of the past five games since returning from groin surgery on Dec. 12.
Pateryn would've seen action in the past five games if it wasn't for a lineup error made by coach Bruce Boudreau in last Tuesday's game that forced Pateryn to sit. The 29-year-old hasn't produced from a fantasy perspective, however, as he's pointless while averaging 15:44 of ice time. More known for his physical play -- he has eight hits and five blocks thus far -- Pateryn should remain off fantasy radars.
Pateryn will not suit up in Tuesday's road contest against Pittsburgh, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Pateryn was in uniform on the bench, however, he was listed on the official team sheet as a scratch, causing him to leave the ice Monday. Pateryn made his 2019-20 season debut Sunday after recovering from groin surgery, dishing out four hits in 12:27 of ice time. With the 29-year-old leaving the ice, the Wild will be down to five defensemen with Ryan Donato joining the team mid-game as the 13th forward.
Pateryn (groin) will be in the lineup for Sunday's game against Vancouver, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Pateryn will be making his 2019-20 season debut Sunday, replacing Brad Hunt in the lineup. Pateryn's return to the lineup likely won't have a big impact from a fantasy perspective, however, as he had just seven points in 80 games last campaign.
Pateryn (groin) will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Canucks, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
Pateryn has been removed from injured reserve, but it appears there are still questions about his health. If he's able to suit up against Vancouver, it will be the blueliner's season debut. Expect a decision on Pateryn's status to come down prior to puck drop Sunday.
The Wild activated Pateryn (groin) off injured reserve Thursday.
Pateryn has yet to play this year due to a groin injury, but it appears as though he's finally healthy enough to make his season debut. The 29-year-old blueliner was a reliable bottom-pairing option for Minnesota in 2018-19, picking up seven points in 80 games, but he won't produce enough offense for fantasy purposes in 2019-20.
Pateryn practiced with the team Monday but won't be ready to play versus Toronto on Tuesday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Pateryn has yet to suit up in an NHL game this season, though he did log one outing with AHL Iowa on a conditioning assignment. The defenseman remains without a specific timeline to return to the ice, but the fact that he is cleared to practice with the team is a step in the right direction. Brad Hunt figures to be the odd man out on the blue line once Pateryn is activated off injured reserve.
Pateryn (groin) was recalled from his conditioning assignment with AHL Iowa on Friday.
Pateryn remains on injured reserve, so he'll likely still be sidelined for some time. The 29-year-old logged just one game in the minors and could be headed for another stint with Iowa depending on how long his injury issues linger. In his stead, Nick Seeler and Brad Hunt figure to continue holding down the third pairing.
Pateryn (groin) was sent down to the AHL for a conditioning assignment by the Wild on Monday.
This news means Pateryn is healthy enough to get back into game action, but he'll first need to get his skating legs under him at the AHL level. He'll almost certainly miss the Wild's next game Tuesday in Florida, but Pateryn could be a candidate to return after that point depending on how he looks at the AHL level.
According to coach Bruce Boudreau, Pateryn (groin) "will be out longer" after suffering a setback in his rehab, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Pateryn was originally expected to begin a rehab stint with AHL Iowa later this week, but that's now off the table, and at this point there's no telling when the 29-year-old blueliner might be ready to make his season debut. Nonetheless, Pateryn's only totaled 20 points in 153 games over the past two campaigns and won't be a viable fantasy option whenever he finally receives clearance to rejoin the Wild's lineup.
Coach Bruce Boudreau said Thursday that Pateryn (groin) won't make the team's upcoming three-game road trip, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Boudreau hinted that Pateryn will likely be accepting a rehab stint in AHL Iowa before returning to the team, and that late next week is the target for his return.

The veteran is expected to occupy a bottom-four role for the Wild upon his return to action.
Pateryn (groin) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's game against Colorado, NHL.com's Jessie Pierce reports.
Pateryn has yet to play this year due to a groin injury, but he finally made his return to practice Monday, so he's definitely trending in the right direction. However, at this juncture there's still no telling when the 29-year-old blueliner might be ready to make his season debut. Once he's given the green light, the 6-foot-3 American will slot into a bottom-four role for the Wild.
Pateryn (groin) was able to practice fully Monday, potentially paving the way for a return to game action later in the week, Chris Miller of the Star Tribune reports.
Pateryn upgraded to a regular sweater after practicing in a non-contact sweater late last week. He could make his return as soon as Tuesday in Buffalo, though a return Thursday against Colorado seems like a more realistic target.
Pateryn (groin) wore a non-contact jersey during Friday's practice, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Pateryn is still recovering from the surgery he underwent Oct. 1 to repair a bilateral core muscle tear, but his presence on the ice Friday suggests he's made significant strides in his rehab recently. However, the veteran blueliner will need to be cleared for contact prior to rejoining the lineup, so expect another update on his status once that occurs.
Pateryn (groin) underwent surgery Tuesday for a bilateral core muscle tear and is expected to miss six weeks.
While the team hasn't officially placed Pateryn on injured reserve, the move should be coming shortly as the 23-man roster limit goes into effect Tuesday. With the veteran sidelined, Carson Soucy figures to snag a spot on the roster, while Brad Hunt should break into the lineup for Opening Night on Thursday. Based on Pateryn's announced timeline, he figures to be on the shelf until mid-November.
Pateryn (lower body) is in danger of starting the 2019-20 campaign on injured reserve, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Pateryn had been dealing with a lower-body for most of Minnesota's training camp, but he was cleared to rejoin the lineup for Sunday's preseason finale against Winnipeg, which seemed to suggest he'd be ready to rock for Thursday's regular-season opener against Nashville. However, the veteran blueliner must have aggravated his injury during that contest, and will now likely miss the first few games of the 2019-20 campaign at a minimum. Brad Hunt is the leading candidate to fill in on the WIld's bottom pairing until Pateryn is ready to return.
Pateryn (lower body) will be in the lineup Sunday when the Wild take on the Jets.
Pateryn has been dealing with a lower-body injury but will return to Minnesota's lineup Sunday for a final tune-up before Opening Night.

Pateryn (lower body) is not in the lineup for Sunday's preseason game in Colorado, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

According to coach Bruce Boudreau, Pateryn is dealing a lower-body injury, Rachel Blount of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
While Pateryn's injury was originally described as minor, Bourdreau also told reporters that he doesn't know when the blueliner will be cleared to play. The Michigan native shouldn't be expected to suddenly find his offensive game after registering just seven points last year.
Pateryn is dealing with a minor undisclosed injury, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Pateryn may sit out a preseason contest or two, but he isn't in any danger of missing Minnesota's Oct. 3 regular-season opener against Nashville. The 29-year-old blueliner only picked up seven points in 80 games last campaign and can be ignored in all fantasy formats.
