  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Progressing well

    Spurgeon (hip) said Friday that he is feeling very good and is confident he will be ready to play next season, according to Michael Russo of The Athletic.

    Spurgeon missed the last 46 games of the season. He managed to dress in only 16 games in 2023-24, picking up five assists, with three coming on the power play. Look for Spurgeon to return to the 35-40 point range if he can remain healthy next season.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Will miss rest of season

    Spurgeon is scheduled to undergo left hip surgery Feb. 6 followed by back surgery roughly four weeks later. He will miss the rest of 2023-24 but is expected to be ready for training camp.

    Spurgeon, who last played Jan. 2, had five assists, 12 hits and 29 blocks in 16 games this campaign. The 34-year-old is still signed with the Wild at a $7.575 million cap hit through 2026-27. If he can stay healthy next season, there's a decent chance he'll rebound by recording 30-40 points while serving in a top-four capacity.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Lands on injured reserve

    Spurgeon (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

    It's unclear if Spurgeon's trip to IR is related to his previous lower-body injury that cost him seven contests in December. The 34-year-old blueliner will be out until at least Jan. 10, though the Wild have not provided a timeline for his return. Daemon Hunt was recalled from AHL Iowa to take Spurgeon's place on the roster.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Still sidelined Wednesday

    Spurgeon (lower body) will not be in the lineup for Wednesday's clash with Detroit, Kevin Falness of KFAN FM100.3 reports.

    Spurgeon has already been out of action since Dec. 10 versus Seattle, a stretch of six games on the shelf due to his lower-body injury. Still, the veteran blueliner has been skating with the team and could be close to returning to the ice. In the meantime, Dakota Mermis should continue to see steady usage.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Ruled out against Canadiens

The blueliner has yet to score a goal in 13 games this season while managing just 17 shots. Despite the lack of shots, Spurgeon has continued to feature with the man advantage, earning three of his four assists on the power play.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Dealing with lower-body issue

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Grabs power-play helper

    Spurgeon notched a power-play assist, seven blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Flames.

    Spurgeon is back on track after initially struggling following his return from an upper-body injury that cost him the first month of the campaign. He's picked up an assist in each of the last four games, and three of those helpers have come on the power play, where he's seeing time on the first unit. Spurgeon has added a plus-4 rating, 13 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and six hits through 10 appearances.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Nearly plays hero in return

    Spurgeon didn't record a point but collected three blocked shots, two hits and a minus-1 rating in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Sabres.

    Activated off IR earlier in the day, Spurgeon saw 21:52 in ice time -- second among Minnesota blueliners to Jonas Brodin -- and very nearly sent the game to overtime, but his shot with 10 seconds left in regulation rang off the post behind Devon Levi. Spurgeon also skated on the second power-play unit in his season debut, and with Calen Addison now a Shark, there could be a spot for the 33-year-old on the top unit before long.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Activated off injured reserve

    Spurgeon (upper body) has been taken off injured reserve ahead of Friday's matchup with Buffalo.

    Previous reports indicated Spurgeon wouldn't be ready to play Friday but it seems that the veteran defender is good to go. Given his lengthy absence, the Edmonton native could be eased back into action with limited minutes. In a corresponding move, Daemon Hunt was shipped down to the minors.

  • Wild's Jared Spurgeon: Set to miss two more

    Spurgeon (upper body) is expected to be unavailable for at least the Wild's next two games, Jessi Pierce of reports Wednesday.

    Spurgeon will have missed 14 games when Minnesota faces Dallas on Sunday. The continued absence of the veteran no doubt factored into the club's decision to bring in Zach Bogosian while trading away Calen Addison on Wednesday. Whenever Spurgeon is given the all-clear, he could find himself slotting into the No. 1 power-play unit which would bolster his offensive upside.
