ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher today announced that defenseman Jonas Brodin will miss a minimum of four weeks due to a fractured finger suffered in last night's 4-3 loss to New Jersey.
Brodin, 23 (7/12/93), has tallied 16 points (3-13=16) including five power-play points in 43 games with Minnesota this season. He has already surpassed his point and assist totals from last season and owns a career-high two game-winning goals. The 6-foot-1, 193-pound native of Karlstad, Sweden, ranks second on the team in blocked shots (68) and third in TOI/game at 19:46. Brodin has collected 70 points (18-52=70) and a plus-21 rating in 306 career NHL contests with the Wild.
