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.

Wild's Spurgeon Exits Early Thursday

News: Jared Spurgeon left Thursday's win over San Jose in the third period with an undisclosed injury after taking a hard check, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Between the illness that's rummaging through the locker room and injuries, the Wild are could be down four blueliners if Jared Spurgeon's injury is something to worry about. Before departing, Spurgeon skated 22:31 and had six shots on goal, but no points.

Wild's Spurgeon To Miss A Few Games

News: Jared Spurgeon (undisclosed) will miss at least a few games, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: The nature of the injury Jared Spurgeon suffered in the third period of Thursday's win over the Sharks is still not known at this point, but it seems the Wild are fearful a long-term absence could be in the works. While losing a top-four blueliner like Spurgeon hurts, the blow will be somewhat cushioned by the forthcoming returns of Christian Folin (illness) and Jonas Brodin (general soreness) both of whom are expected to rejoin the lineup Saturday.

Wild's Spurgeon Helps Out In Win

News: Jared Spurgeon picked up two assists, went plus-2, took a minor penalty and blocked five shots in Thursday's 2-0 shutout of the Coyotes.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon's off to a good start this year, with four points in five games, but his penchant for injury and the Wild's mediocrity on offense will keep his fantasy contributions relatively modest. A 30-point year is in reach, but 40 looks unlikely unless he can move up to the top defensive pairing.

Wild's Spurgeon Blocks Nine Shots

News: Jared Spurgeon had an assist and set a new franchise record with nine blocked shots in Saturday's win over Colorado.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon is off to a strong start to the season, notching two points and 10 blocks in two games.

Wild's Spurgeon Scores Goal In Season Opener

News: Jared Spurgeon had a goal on two shots on net in Thursday's win over Colorado.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon set career highs in in goals (five), assists (21) and plus/minus (plus-15) last year and the first game makes it look like he'll improve on those totals.

Wild's Spurgeon Collects Two Points In Game 4

News: Jared Spurgeon had an assist and a goal in Friday's Game 4 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: The two points were Jared Spurgeon's first since scoring a game-tying goal late in third period of Game 7 during the Wild's first-round series with the Avalanche. Among the team's defensemen, Spurgeon typically plays second fiddle on the offensive end to star blueliner Ryan Suter, but he's been a solid contributor this postseason with three goals and two assists in 11 games.

Wild's Spurgeon To Sit Out Thursday

News: Jared Spurgeon will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Blues.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon's play wouldn't seem to have much to do with his banishment to the press box Thursday. Instead, it seems coach Mike Yeo just wanted to get Jonathan Blum into the lineup, while giving Spurgeon some time to rest up in advance of the postseason.

Spurgeon's Game Winner Leads Wild Over Coyotes

News: Jared Spurgeon beat Thomas Greiss with a slapshot for his fifth goal of the season Saturday, as the Wild beat the Coyotes 3-1. His tally was the second of three unanswered third-period goals by the Wild and ended up as the game winner.
Analysis: The fourth-year NHLer has come alive of late, contributing six points while skating to a plus-five rating in the last seven games. Jared Spurgeon is seeing big-time minutes beside Ryan Suter and is now up to five goals, 19 assists and a plus-11 rating in 60 games this season, so people outside of St. Paul are finally noticing this kid. You should too.

Spurgeon Notches Two Assists For Wild

News: Jared Spurgeon picked up an assist on the power play and another at even strength in Thursday's loss to Detroit.
Analysis: He added two PIM, four hits and a pair of blocked shots. Jared Spurgeon had hit a bit of a slump in early-to-mid-March, totaling just one point in a six-game span, but he's now got three in his last two contests.

Wild's Spurgeon Notches Goal Tuesday

News: Jared Spurgeon recorded his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's blowout victory over the Islanders.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon's main value comes on the defense end for the Wild, but he's managed to compile three of his four goals on the season in the month of March. He also finished with a season-high plus-4 rating in Tuesday's win.

Wild's Spurgeon: Two Assists In Return

News: In his first game back following a 14-game absence due to a foot injury, Jared Spurgeon picked up a pair of assists (one on the power play) in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Tampa.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon had been anything but hot even before he was sidelined, so don't get too excited about this one good game.

News: Jared Spurgeon (foot) will return to Minnesota lineup Tuesday against the Lightning, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon, who last suited up on January 2, checks back in with 12 points in in 43 games. Look for him to skate on a defensive pairing with Marco Scandella on Tuesday.

Wild's Spurgeon Likely To Return Tuesday

News: Coach Mike Yeo indicated that there's a very good chance Jared Spurgeon (foot) will be back in the lineup Tuesday against the Lightning, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon was expected to return from IR at some point last week, but that never materialized after Yeo and the team's medical staff decided he could benefit from some further recovery time. He's missed the last 14 games with the injury.
