Jared Spurgeon News
Minnesota Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon (upper body) will make his season debut in Friday's matchup against Buffalo. The Wild captain sustained an upper-body injury in a preseason game against Chicago, but he's good to go now and has been activated from long-term Injured Reserve. The team initially did well despite his absence, but recent weeks have been tough for Minnesota, so this should be a big boost for the squad. Spurgeon had 34 points (11 goals, 23 assists) in 79 games last season with 149 shots on net, 179 blocks, and a plus-32 rating. Daemon Hunt has been sent to the minors to accommodate Spurgeon's return.
Minnesota Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon (upper body) was seen mixing into practice drills on Wednesday. This marks the first time Spurgeon has practiced with the team since his injury, which occurred before the regular season started. He is eligible to come off LTIR on November 7, and based on his return to practice he is likely to return on or just after that date. When he returns, Spurgeon should see plenty of ice time as part of the first pairing and second powerplay unit. He could also challenge Calen Addison for his spot on the first powerplay unit. The Wild captain is worthy of being on a fantasy roster in deeper leagues and leagues that count blocks.
Minnesota Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon (upper body) won't be available for the start of the season and is considered week-to-week. The Wild captain was injured in Thursday's preseason game against Chicago. Minnesota starts the real action next Thursday versus Florida. Spurgeon's leadership and two-way ability will be a big miss for the Wild at the start of the campaign. The 33-year-old tallied 34 points (11 goals, 23 assists) in 79 games last season with a plus-32 rating, 149 shots on goal, 176 blocks, and 66 hits. Alex Goligoski took Spurgeon's spot next to Jacob Middleton in Friday's practice.
Minnesota Wild defensemen Jared Spurgeon and Matt Dumba are getting Monday night off and won't play against Chicago. The backline will also be missing Jonas Brodin, who gets some time off as well, with Minnesota seemingly happy to settle for third place in the Central Division. Alex Goligoski, Calen Addison and Brock Faber will enter the lineup, with the latter set for his NHL debut only a day after inking a three-year entry-level contract. Fabres had an outstanding college career with the Minnesota Golden Gophers, tallying 53 points in 97 games with 130 blocked shots and a plus-54 rating.
