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.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
