BOSTON -- Minnesota Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin will not play against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Tuesday, Wild coach Mike Yeo said.
Brodin hit the boards after a hit by New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider on Monday in the Wild’s 5-4 loss. Brodin returned to the game and played 22:21, but Yeo said the 21-year-old was sore in several places.
Brodin has one assist and a plus-7 rating in seven games this season.
Defenseman Justin Falk, who was recalled from Iowa of the American Hockey League on Tuesday, is expected to replace Brodin in the lineup.
Center Erik Haula, who has one goal in seven games this season, also will not play. He was injured on a hit by Rangers defenseman John Moore on Monday. Haula left the game in the second period and did not return. Yeo said Haula has not shown concussion symptoms. Forward Kyle Brodziak will play in Haula’s place.
Yeo said there will be several line changes but the trio of Zach Parise, Mikael Granlund and Jason Pominville will remain together against the Bruins.
