Jared Spurgeon produced a goal and an assist in Minnesota's 6-2 win against New Jersey on Tuesday.

He was credited with the game-winning goal and he finished with a plus-3 rating. Spurgeno has contributed eight goals and 20 points in 52 games with the Wild this season.

Defenseman Jared Spurgeon will be back in the Minnesota Wild lineup when the Colorado Avalanche visits Minnesota Sunday.

Spurgeon has missed the past eight games with concussion-like symptoms. During his absence, Minnesota went 7-1-0. But he is a welcome back by the Wild, which enters the day one point ahead of the Winnipeg Jets for the top Wild Card spot in the Western Conference for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Spurgeon is second among Wild defensemen with seven goals this season and third with 18 points. He is a plus-1.

Jared Spurgeon won't return from a concussion on Thursday.

"It's tough. Not a lot of practice time, so you use these pregame skates like practices," Spurgeon said. "But it's tough because with what I had, you can't do much, so you lose it pretty fast when guys are playing every other day." He might be ready to play on Friday against Carolina.
Mar 5 - 6:06 PM

Jared Spurgeon (upper body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Minnesota didn't immediately make a corresponding move. The Wild's decision to shift Spurgeon to the IR list isn't hard to understand though given that it's presumably retroactive to Feb. 18. He's eligible to play as early as Thursday, although he reportedly has concussion-like symptoms, so it's entirely possible that he'll be on the sidelines for a while.
Feb 24 - 1:35 PM

Jared Spurgeon (upper body) will miss Tuesday's game.

Spurgeon hasn't played since Feb. 18 due to the injury. He has seven goals and 18 points in 50 contests in 2014-15.
Feb 23 - 1:24 PM

Jared Spurgeon will miss Friday's game with an upper-body injury.

It's believed he suffered concussion-like symptoms after he was struck in the chin by a Mark Giordano shot on Wednesday.
Feb 19 - 4:43 PM

Jared Spurgeon was hit in the face by a puck on his second shift of Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over Calgary.

He wasn't able to return. Matt Dumba got some extra responsibilities in Spurgeon's place. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Feb 19 - 12:55 PM

Jared Spurgeon is averaging 24:12 minutes per game in 2014-15.

Amazingly, that's only good for third place among the Wild's defense. Minnesota heavily leans on Ryan Suter, Jonas Brodin, Spurgeon, and Marco Scandella, but those are the only blueliners coach Mike Yeo seems to trust with much ice time. With a little over half the season in the books, it doesn't look like the Wild have any intention of giving Spurgeon a bit more rest.
Jan 23 - 5:24 PM

Jared Spurgeon (illness) will play Wednesday night.

He has missed the last two games with an illness. Spurgeon has nine points, 58 blocks and 56 shots in 22 contests this year.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 06:27:00 PM

Jared Spurgeon reportedly has a stomach virus and not the mumps.

Spurgeon missed Saturday's contest due to the illness. There's naturally plenty of speculation whenever a player gets sick now because the NHL has been trying to contain a mumps outbreak. Spurgeon should be considered day-to-day for now.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 01:27:00 PM

Jared Spurgeon was held out of Saturday's game due to illness.

No word if he caught the dreaded mumps that's been going around the league and caused teammate Ryan Suter to miss time. The Wild are playing with 17 players against the Coyotes.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 08:36:00 PM

Jared Spurgeon was a late scratch Saturday night, and the Wild have not released any details as to why.

Spurgeon’s absence was a last-minute one as the Wild are playing only 17 skaters against the Coyotes. He has three goals and nine points in 22 games this season.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 08:29:00 PM

Jared Spurgeon and Nate Prosser are the only Minnesota defensemen who have not contracted the mumps this season.

They are trying to avoid it too by taking extra precautions. Spurgeon has been in a bit of slump lately with no points in his last eight games after posting six points in his first 12 games this season. If you have Spurgeon on your fantasy team, it may be time to place him on reserve.
Sat, Dec 6, 2014 01:42:00 PM

Jared Spurgeon (shoulder) has been activated from injured reserve.

He'll be back in the lineup Thursday after sitting out five contests with a shoulder injury. Spurgeon is a valuable defenseman for the Wild and he's played well this season. He has six points and a plus-7 rating in nine matches.
