BREAKING: Another MN Wild Player to IR/Defenseman Recalled

The Minnesota Wild announced this evening that they were placing one more player on Injured Reserve. Captain and defenseman Jared Spurgeon, after the scare during last night’s game against the Calgary Flames, is indeed injured. The Wild have recalled defenseman Daemon Hunt from the Iowa Wild to fill in.

This adds to a long list of other injuries that the Wild are dealing with. Click the button below to read the status of all of the other injuries along with an explanation of what IR (Injured Reserve) and LTIR (Long Term Injured Reserve) mean.

Spurgeon has been battling injuries for months, starting even before the NHL season started. Sustaining an injury during a pre-season game, Spurgeon was out for just over a month. Spurgeon was once again injured on December 14th and was out until just before last weekend’s home-and-home against the Winnipeg Jets.

Hunt made his NHL debut this season in Washington on 10/27. He’s played a total of 9 games, tallying one assist so far. Hunt has 9 points (1 goal and 9 assists) during his 18 games with the Iowa Wild this season. With so many injuries on the Wild, Hunt should be comfortable sliding into the lineup. The eye test said that Hunt, though young, was ready for NHL games.

The Wild host the Tampa Bay Lightning tomorrow night in what should be an interesting game. The lineup for Tuesday’s game was already unique, and now it will change once again. Click below to read the recap of their game against the Flames with an AHL-heavy roster.
