Ryan Suter has posted a minus-21 rating in his last 20 games.

"I've never gone through anything like this," Suter said. "Innocent plays are ending up in the back of our net. I've never, ever, experienced [these minuses] in my life. To be minus-3 in a night, it would happen maybe once a year. Now it seems like it's an every-night occurrence." He was suspended for two games on Wednesday for an elbowing incident against Pittsburgh's Steve Downie Tuesday night. Suter will be eligible to return on Jan. 19 versus Columbus.

Ryan Suter will miss two games for his elbow to Pittsburgh's forward Steve Downie on Tuesday.

The department of player safety determined it was a elbow to jaw of Downie that caused no apparent injury. Suter is not a repeat offender so it goes down as a two game suspension. Not a great team for a Minnesota team that is struggling to get wins and now have to play without its' best defender.

Ryan Suter will represent the Minnesota Wild during All-Star weekend.

Suter is struggling like the rest of his Wild teammates, but he will head to Columbus for All-Star festivities. The 29-year-old has one goal, 22 points and a minus-2 rating in 38 games this season. He is a stunning minus-15 in his last 18 games. "I’m very excited,’’ said Suter, who played in the 2012 All-Star Game when he was with Nashville. "I feel very privileged to represent our team. It’s too bad our team is playing the way we are; we’d have a few more guys [on the All-Star roster] for sure if we were higher in the standings. But I’m very, very proud and very honored.’’

Minnesota's top pairing of Jonas Brodin and Ryan Suter played monster minutes in Saturday's shootout win over Arizona.

With Marco Scandella suspended, and Jared Spurgeon out, the Wild leaned on their two workhorse defensemen. Suter played 33:47, while Brodin played a career-high 31:54. The two will continue to see big minutes, but it's unlikely that they will get that much ice time on a consistent basis.
