Suter's five points led all defensemen and tied for second in the League last week to help the Wild gain four out of a possible six points. His three assists in a 5-4 comeback win against the New York Islanders on Dec. 9 matched a career high for points in one game. He leads the League in average ice time (29:27) and is third on the Wild in scoring with 18 points (goal, 17 assists) in 26 games.
"I think it's going well," Suter said of the Wild's season to date. "I think we've been inconsistent. I think if we want to grow as a team I think we have to get some consistency in our game. But for the most part we've been going in the right direction."
