Minnesota Wild forward Erik Haula sustained a non-displaced fractured of his jaw while playing for Finland in the 2014 IIHF World Championship, the team announced Wednesday.

Haula suffered the injury in a loss to Russia in the gold-medal game. He will not require surgery and should be fully recovered in 3-4 weeks.

Haula had six goals and 15 points in 46 regular-season games as a rookie and added four goals and seven points in 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games. He also had one assist in six games for Finland at the World Championship.
