by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

Minnesota Wild center Mikael Granlund had successful surgery to repair a fractured left wrist, the Wild said Monday. He is expected to make a full recovery and return in about four weeks.

Granlund was injured in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday on a hit from Winnipeg's Dustin Byfuglien. Granlund was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

Mikko Koivu will replace Granlund on Minnesota's top line with Zach Parise and Jason Pominville on Monday against the Jets at MTS Center.

Granlund had a goal and an assist Saturday. His 15 points are eighth on the Wild.
