Wild's Spurgeon Gets In Skate Tuesday

News: Jared Spurgeon (head) participated in Tuesday's morning skate, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon didn't appear to be facing any limitations during the session and is considered a possibility to play Thursday against the Capitals. However, with the Wild not holding practice Wednesday and thus not being able to make another assessment of Spurgeon's condition, the blueliner might have to wait until the weekend to get back in the lineup.

Wild's Spurgeon Progressing

News: Jared Spurgeon (head) skated on his own prior to Monday's practice, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: According to the report, Jared Spurgeon, who is dealing with a suspected concussion, could return to action as soon as Thursday against the Caps. While such a scenario effectively rules Spurgeon out for Tuesday's contest against Ottawa, the Wild are likely just pleased to hear that the blueliner isn't looking at an especially lengthy absence. He's missed the team's past five games.

Wild's Spurgeon Could Practice Monday

News: Jared Spurgeon (head) could resume practicing Monday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon planned to work out on his own in Minnesota on Saturday, which would normally indicate a forthcoming return to practice for a player coming off injury. The blueliner is dealing with a suspected concussion after taking a puck to the face in a Feb. 18 game.

Wild's Spurgeon Remains Out

News: Jared Spurgeon (face) will not travel to Nashville for Thursday's game against the Preds.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon is thus ruled out for the Wild's next two games, with Saturday's contest against the Avs representing his next chance to suit up. Coach Mike Yeo has noted that Spurgeon is showing improvement, but he has yet to resume skating since suffering the injury last Wednesday.

Wild's Spurgeon Placed On IR

News: Jared Spurgeon (face) was placed on injured reserve Monday.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon has already been ruled out ahead of Tuesday's game against the Oilers while he continues to deal with suspected concussion symptoms. His IR stint is backdated to Feb. 18, which would allow him to return to action Thursday against the Predators if he's fully healthy by that point.

Wild's Spurgeon Remains Sidelined

News: Jared Spurgeon (face) won't play Tuesday against the Oilers, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon thus remains in the day-to-day category as Thursday's game against the Preds approaches.

Wild's Spurgeon (Face) Out Sunday

News: Jared Spurgeon (face) wasn't on the ice for morning skate, indicating he will miss Sunday's game against the Stars, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon took a puck to the face in Wednesday's contest, and the injury will cause him to miss at least two additional games. There is reportedly concern of a possible concussion, but coach Mike Yeo indicated Sunday that Spurgeon is day-to-day and is feeling better. With the news that he'll miss Sunday, his next chance to return will come Tuesday against the Oilers.

Wild's Spurgeon Ruled Out Friday

News: Jared Spurgeon (face) will be unavailable for Friday's game against the Oilers, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: After taking a Mark Giordano shot to the chin during Wednesday's win over the Flames, Jared Spurgeon will be forced to head to the press box for the match in his hometown of Edmonton. It's feared that Spurgeon may have suffered a concussion from the impact, but the Wild haven't provided much information on his health other than indicating he was dealing with an upper-body injury. Seventh defenseman Stu Bickel or a potential call-up from AHL Iowa would likely assume Spurgeon's spot in the lineup Friday.

Wild's Spurgeon Exits Wednesday With Injury

News: Jared Spurgeon exited Wednesday's game in the first period after taking a puck to the face, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon has not been ruled out for the game, but he did not return to the bench after leaving the contest. Expect an update on Spurgeon's status as more details become available.

Wild's Spurgeon Assists Twice In Win

News: Jared Spurgeon accrued two assists in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon ranks second among Wild blueliners in both goals (seven) and points (18). Those numbers aren't impressive enough to carry much value outside of deeper leagues just yet, but the 25-year-old might have a 40-point season in him down the road.

Wild's Spurgeon Credited With Assist In Win

News: Jared Spurgeon chipped in an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 5-3 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: Many fantasy owners hoped Jared Spurgeon's hot October portended a breakout, but he hasn't looked nearly as effective after returning from a shoulder injury in mid-November. He's provided only 10 in 36 games since then.

Opposite Days For Wild's Spurgeon

News: Two nights after going minus-4 without a point in a 7-2 loss to the Penguins, Jared Spurgeon scored a goal and went a game-high plus-4 in a 7-0 thrashing of the Sabres.
Analysis: It's hard to find two consecutive games with such diametrically opposed results, but that's the Wild's inconsistency for you. The team ended its six-game losing streak in a big way, with new goalie Devan Dubnyk providing some stability between the pipes while Jared Spurgeon and the rest of the Wild skaters lit up the opposing net. For Spurgeon himself, the effort ends a four-game skid in which he'd failed to tally a point.

Wild's Spurgeon Nets Game-Winner Friday

News: Jared Spurgeon scored the winning goal in Friday's 3-1 triumph over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon picked a good time to net his first goal in 18 games, finding twine with less than 13 minutes remaining in the final period to give the Wild a 2-1 lead. The blueliner looked poised for a breakout season after a six-point October, but since then, he's produced just six points in 20 contests.

Wild's Spurgeon Will Return Wednesday

News: Jared Spurgeon (illness) will play Wednesday against the Bruins, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon will return to action after missing the last two games with a stomach ailment. He will replace Christian Folin in the lineup for Wednesday's game.

Wild's Spurgeon Optimistic For Wednesday

News: Jared Spurgeon (illness) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks, but hopes to play Wednesday against Boston, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon was able to skate Tuesday morning, so assuming he endures no recurrence of symptoms overnight, he could be ready to go Wednesday. The blueliner's illness is a case of the stomach flu, so he's seemingly avoided falling victim to the mumps epidemic that has already afflicted five Wild defensemen.

Wild's Spurgeon Out For Tuesday

News: Jared Spurgeon (illness) will not play Tuesday against the Blackhawks, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon is still dealing with a stomach flu and won't travel to Chicago for Tuesday's game. The good news is that he apparently doesn't have the mumps, so he should be able to return later in the week.

Wild's Spurgeon Has Stomach Flu

News: Jared Spurgeon, who missed Saturday's game against the Coyotes, has the stomach flu, the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chad Graff reports.
Analysis: Teammate Charlie Coyle had the same bug earlier in the week. The important news here is that it's not the mumps, and it sounds like Jared Spurgeon could be back on the ice for a game as early as Tuesday.

Wild's Spurgeon Won't Play Saturday

News: Jared Spurgeon (illness) will not play Saturday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: The Wild are listing him as out with an "illness," so it is not immediately clear whether this is related to the mumps outbreak that has plagued the NHL recently. Perhaps the team will release more information after the game, but for now Jared Spurgeon is considered day-to-day. Minnesota's next game comes Tuesday at Chicago.

Jared Spurgeon, D, MIN Wild's Spurgeon Gets Assist In Win

Wild's Spurgeon Gets Assist In Win

News: Jared Spurgeon recorded an assist in his 22:30 of ice time Tuesday versus the Islanders.
Analysis: Since returning from a broken hand on Nov. 13 with a one-goal, eight-shot game, Jared Spurgeon hasn't been especially active offensively. He's failed to net a goal and has picked up only two assists over his last 11 games, taking some steam out of what looked like a potential star-making season.

Wild's Spurgeon Active In Victory

News: Jared Spurgeon (shoulder) bagged a goal and fired off a team-high eight shot attempts in a whopping 29:27 of ice time in his return to action Thursday against the Sabres.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon saw only three seconds fewer than NHL average ice time leader Ryan Suter, a rather high minutes count for a player coming off injury against a feeble opponent. If nothing else, it demonstrated that coach Mike Yeo is comfortable with where Spurgeon is on the health front despite having missed the previous two weeks of action. As his ample production illustrates, Spurgeon showed no ill effects from the heavy workload, picking up right where he left off prior to suffering the injury. The 24-year-old has three goals and four assists over 10 games and appears to be in the midst of a breakout season. He's certainly worth an add in any format in the event his previous owner dropped him while he was on injured reserve.

Wild Activate Spurgeon

News: Jared Spurgeon (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon will rejoin Ryan Suter on the Wild's top pairing Thursday against the Sabres, after missing just under two weeks of action with the shoulder issue. His return to the lineup comes at especially vital time for the Wild, who will be without Marco Scandella and Jonas Brodin on Thursday and possibly longer, while both deal with suspected cases of the mumps virus.

Wild's Spurgeon Listed As Probable For Thursday

News: Jared Spurgeon (shoulder) is considered probable to play Thursday against the Sabres, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon earned the probable designation by participating in Wednesday's optional practice, showing seemingly no ill effects from the shoulder injury that he sustained Oct. 30 against the Sharks. The Wild will likely evaluate him after Thursday's morning skate as a final check before activating him from injured reserve. Spurgeon's return would provide a huge boost to the Wild's blue line, as he seemed on the cusp of a career-best season prior to suffering the injury. He tallied two goals and four assists to go along with a minus-7 rating over his first nine games.

Wild's Spurgeon Possible For Thursday

News: Jared Spurgeon (shoulder) could return to the lineup Thursday against the Sabres, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon got in a hard skate at Tuesday's morning session, which represented enough progress for coach Mike Yeo to suggest that he hasn't been ruled out as an option for Thursday's game. The Wild will likely see how Spurgeon performs in Wednesday's practice before making any determination on his playing status.

Wild's Spurgeon Travelling With Team

News: Jared Spurgeon (shoulder) will travel with the team to New Jersey, but won't play.
Analysis: The blueliner is still on IR with the injury, but should be back in the lineup soon. Jared Spurgeon recorded two goals and four assists in nine games before getting hurt.

Wild's Spurgeon Moved To IR With Shoulder Issue

News: Jared Spurgeon was placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury Friday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon injured the shoulder when he was checked into the boards by the Sharks' Joe Pavelski on Thursday. Though Spurgeon has not been diagnosed with a separated shoulder, the Wild haven't put a firm timetable for his return beyond coach Mike Yeo saying that the defenseman would miss "more than couple games." The timing of the injury couldn't be more frustrating, as the 24-year-old Spurgeon looked to be on the cusp of a breakout season prior to being sidelined. In addition to providing his usually reliable play on the back end, Spurgeon had been an offensive force with six points and a plus-7 rating in nine games.
