Wild's Rupp Suspended Four Games

News: Mike Rupp has been suspended four games for an illegal hit on St. Louis' T.J. Oshie on Thursday night, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The suspension will prevent Mike Rupp from playing in the Wild's final regular season game and its first three playoff games. The Wild shouldn't miss him much, however, as Thursday's game was the first he had played in since Feb. 1.

Wild's Rupp Stuck On Bench

News: Mike Rupp hasn't played since Feb. 1 as the Wild feel his skating is a problem after offseason knee surgery, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It doesn't look like Mike Rupp is going to be much of a factor the rest of the season for the Wild even though he's on the active roster.

Wild's Rupp Gets Ice Time

News: Mike Rupp had one shot on goal but did not register a point in Thursday's loss to Colorado. He's played in three consecutive games as the center on the fourth line ahead of Jason Zucker.
Analysis: Zucker has been a healthy scratch as the Wild have chosen to go with a more physical fourth line. Mike Rupp and Zucker may alternate starts in the near term, but Zucker may be sent back to the minors after the Olympic break.

Wild's Rupp A Healthy Scratch Sunday

News: Mike Rupp will be a healthy scratch Sunday against the Sharks, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Mike Rupp exceeded nine minutes of ice time Friday for the first time this season, but he's been largely ineffective since returning from a knee injury and will watch from the press box Sunday as a healthy scratch. It's his first healthy scratch of the season.

Wild's Rupp Gets Into Fight In Return

News: Mike Rupp returned to action after missing two games due to a death in his family and was on the ice for just over three minutes in Monday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: He didn't have any points, but picked up a five-minute fighting major. Mike Rupp's fantasy value is mostly in penalty minutes, as he doesn't get much ice time.

Wild's Rupp (Personal) Out Indefinitely

News: Mike Rupp will be away from the team indefinitely to attend to a personal matter.
Analysis: The Wild designated Mike Rupp as a non-roster player in order to facilitate the addition of Erik Haula to the active roster. It's not immediately clear when Rupp will be back will rejoin the team. He recently returned from a knee injury and has suited for just two games this season.

WIld's Rupp To Return Monday

News: Mike Rupp (knee) will be activated from IR and play Monday against St. Louis, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: He'll take the place of Mikael Granlund, who is out with an upper-body injury. Mike Rupp may see limited minutes initially as he sees his first game action of the season.

Wild's Rupp Could Return Monday

News: Mike Rupp was expected to join the Wild in St. Louis late Sunday after a five-game conditioning stint with Iowa of the AHL, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mike Rupp could be activated from IR for Monday's game if Mikael Granlund isn't ready to return from an upper-body injury.

Wild's Rupp Assigned TO AHL For Conditioning Work

News: Mike Rupp (knee) was sent to AHL Iowa on Tuesday on a conditioning assignment.
Analysis: Mike Rupp has been out since the start of the season with the injury and could require a week or so of action in the minors before the Wild activate him from IR. He had been practicing with Minnesota over the last couple of weeks, but real game action in the minors should provide a more accurate barometer of his health.

Wild's Rupp (Knee) Likely To Begin Rehab Assignment

News: Mike Rupp (knee) is likely to begin a rehab assignment with AHL Iowa in the next few days, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Iowa has three home games this week, so he could play in a few of those games. He could return in a week or so, but it's not clear he'll have a high-profile role when he finally returns to the Wild.

Wild's Rupp Appears Ready To Return

News: Mike Rupp (knee) believes he's ready to return from injured reserve, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Mike Rupp has been practicing with the Wild for two weeks now, but coach Mike Yeo seems reluctant to bring Rupp back from injured reserve without any game action under his belt. Expect him to be sent out to AHL Iowa on a rehab assignment at some point next week, where he'll have to prove himself healthy before he's brought back to the parent club. Even so, it's likely that he would serve as a fourth-liner or healthy scratch most nights, both of which would cap his upside in the fantasy game.

Wild's Rupp Participating In Practice

News: Though Mike Rupp (knee) has been a full participant in practice recently, head coach Mike Yeo said that Rupp needs to find "another gear" before making his return, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Analysis: It sounds like Mike Rupp is honing in on a return and just needs to catch up on his quickness and conditioning. With just 98 points in 597 career games, the 33-year-old depth forward won't be an option for most fantasy owners.

Wild's Rupp (Knee) Begins To Skate

News: Mike Rupp (knee) skated with the Wild before Thursday's game, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: He began the season on IR with the knee injury. While it sounds like he's making progress, he hasn't returned to a full practice and there's no timetable for his return.

Wild's Rupp Placed On IR

News: Mike Rupp (knee) will be placed on injured reserve by the Wild on Tuesday, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mike Rupp has been working on his recovery from meniscus surgery and may not quite be ready for the first game. He has not been ruled out officially of Thursday's season opener, but the team has the option of giving him extra time to prepare and get his knee fully healthy.

Wild's Rupp (Knee) Likely Out To Start Season

News: While the Wild have not ruled Mike Rupp (knee) out for the start of the regular season, it looks like he'll begin the season on injured reserve, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He's feeling better," coach Mike Yeo said. "I'm not going to rule it out. But he's got to get some quality practice time in. He's got a lot of catching up to do."
Analysis: He hasn't played in any preseason games. It would be a surprise if he was active for the start of the regular season at this point. The bigger question is how many regular season games he'll miss.

Wild's Rupp Could Begin Season On IR

News: Mike Rupp (knee) has not played this preseason and could begin the season on injured reserve, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: He's coming back from offseason surgery to repair the meniscus in his knee, so it may be a few games into the regular season before he's ready.

Wild's Rupp Still Recovering from Knee Surgery

News: Mike Rupp still has not been cleared to play following his offseason meniscus surgery, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mike Rupp is skating just fine, but he has not participated in any drills or informal skates yet. Even if he's not quite ready for the start of training camp, the team doesn't expect his recovery to put his availability for the regular season in jeopardy.

Wild's Russo To Undergo Meniscus Surgery

News: Mike Rupp will undergo offseason meniscus surgery and is expected to have a quick recovery process, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Michael Russo reports.
Analysis: Mike Rupp, who tallied four points and 79 PIMs in 40 games during the 2012-13 season, should be ready for the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

Rupp Returns In Wild Loss

News: Mike Rupp played 6:41 in his return to the lineup from an upper-body injury on Friday, accruing 12 penalty minutes in the Wild's 6-1 loss to Edmonton.
Analysis: Mike Rupp has no points in eight games with the Wild and could be a quietly valuable piece should the team make the playoffs. He won't score too much but he shouldn't hurt the team in the few minutes of ice time he'll see every game.

Wild's Rupp To Play Friday

News: Mike Rupp (lower body) will play on Friday against the Oilers, according to Wild coach Mike Yeo.
Analysis: Mike Rupp was expected to be questionable after Friday's morning practice but he will give it a go on the ice against the Oilers. If the Wild win Friday, they could clinch a playoff spot which would give Rupp the opportunity to sit out Saturday to rest instead, but the importance of the playoff bid likely weighed into the decision for him to take the ice Friday.

Wild's Rupp Questionable

Analysis: If the Wild win Friday and clinch a playoff spot, Mike Rupp may not play in the team's final regular season game.

News: Mike Rupp (undisclosed) only skated at the beginning of practice Monday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mike Rupp has missed the last three games, and after missing some of practice Monday, his status for Tuesday's matchup with the Kings is up in the air.

Wild's Rupp Misses Another Game

News: Mike Rupp missed his third consecutive game Sunday with an undisclosed injury, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Mikael Granlund has moved from center to wing with Mike Rupp out. It's not clear if Rupp will be able to return before the end of the regular season.

Wild's Rupp Out Thursday

News: Mike Rupp (undisclosed) will miss Thursday's contest against the Sharks.
Analysis: Mike Rupp remains day-to-day going forward and recent call-up Mikael Granlund will once again see action in Rupp's absence.

Wild's Rupp Misses Game With Injury

News: Mike Rupp missed Tuesday's game after he aggravated an undisclosed injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mikael Granlund was recalled from the AHL as a result. It's not clear how long Mike Rupp will be out. He missed time in March with a lower body injury, so this may be the same ailment.
