Jared Spurgeon left Saturday's game against the Blues after blocking a shot.
It's another tough blow for the struggling Wild who will already be without Jonas Brodin for the next three to six weeks. "I don’t have an update yet, but one thing I know about Spurgeon is when he leaves a game, it’s not something small," coach Mike Yeo said. "I’m not going to sit here and say he’s going to be out long-term, but I will say that I know he was in pain." Feb 7 - 11:58 AM

With the Wild trailing 2-1 late in the third, Spurgeon beat Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy to tie the game. Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter picked up the assists on Spurgeon's sixth goal of the year. The 26-year-old has 18 points in 37 games in '15-16.
Jan 3 - 10:13 AM

Jared Spurgeon has agreed to a four-year, $20.75 million extension.

This will be Spurgeon's last campaign at a $2,666,666 annual cap hit. He's not a pure defensive defenseman, but he's still one of those players that has more value to his team than he does to standard league fantasy owners. That being said he might surpass his career-high 26 points as he already has 16 points in 31 contests in 2015-16.

Minnesota has started preliminary contract talks with Jared Spurgeon.

He will be a restricted free agent after the 2015-16 season. Spurgeon has four goals and 16 points in 28 games this year. The Wild is not rushing to get something done here, so negotiations may be an off and on process throughout the year.

Jared Spurgeon scored his fourth of the season in 2-1 overtime loss to Arizona.

Spurgeon scored on the rush off of a feed from Zach Parise. The 26-year-old beat Anders Lindback six minutes into the second period for his fourth goal of the year. He now totals four goals and 15 points in 27 games this season. Spurgeon fired three shots on goal and skated just over 23 minutes, second in Wild skaters only to Ryan Suter. Spurgeon has three points in his last five games.

He has racked up two goals and five assists over a six-game scoring spree. The 25-year-old blueliner now has 12 points in 17 matches this season. He's worthy of a flier in standard leagues, but this streak probably won't last much longer.

Jared Spurgeon scored the winner and only goal of the game to lead the Wild to a 1-0 win over Tampa Bay.

It was Spurgeon's second of the season and he was set up by Charlie Coyle and Jason Pominville. Spurgeon now has seven points in 13 games and is on his way to a career high in points as his mark of 26 was set two seasons ago. He is a nice 4-5 defenseman in deep leagues.

Jared Spurgeon scored the lone goal in the Wild's 6-1 loss to St. Louis on Wednesday.

Spurgeon was a minus-2 on the night but did manage the goal on the power-play. The only Wild player not a minus player on the night was Nino Niederreiter who drew an assist on the goal. The Wild players will like to forget this game ever happened as they were booed off the ice at every intermission.

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.

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.

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.
