Ryan Suter will have season-ending surgery to repair a fracture in his right ankle.

Suter suffered the injury during Saturday's game against the Dallas Stars. Losing him for the remainder of the regular season and the playoffs is a huge blow for a Wild team that will likely open the postseason in Winnipeg. Not only did Suter put up six goals and 51 points in 78 games this season, he also averaged 26:47 of ice time in 2017-18. The Wild have a deep blue line, but they don't have anyone who can eat up those kinds of minutes on a nightly basis.

Coach Bruce Boudreau also put Matt Dumba back with Jonas Brodin. Minnesota had been switching around their defense pairings at training camp, but they returned to normal with the regular season set to begin. "Spurgeon and Suter were arguably the best in the league last year. Both were plus-34," said Boudreau. "They seem to be on the ice all the time. And I thought especially in October, when the schedule is not that tough, that they can use the minutes. And we may as well have them together than apart."
