Jared Spurgeon (illness) will be a game-time decision Monday night.

Spurgeon left the morning skate early because he wasn't feeling well. Minnesota has called up Ryan Murphy from the minors as a potential replacement against Winnipeg. Spurgeon has generated 15 points in 23 games this season and he logs heavy minutes on the team's top pairing, so he would be a key loss for the Wild.

Thankfully, the Minnesota defender sustained just a fat lip and some stitches to his lower left cheek.
