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
