He wore a full plastic bubble shield but didn't seem bothered by it. Brodin had a game high 26:54 of ice time so he is obviously fine to activate.

Jonas Brodin skated on his own Monday, but apparently his face is still swollen.

It's unclear if he'll be able to practice Wednesday. Brodin suffered a broken cheekbone on Oct. 22 against Nashville.

The Wild decided to give Jonas Brodin another day off the ice to let swelling in his cheekbone area subside.

Brodin sustained a broken cheekbone Tuesday when he was hit in the face by a puck and will certainly not play Saturday or Monday of next week. He will wear a full cage in practices when he does return to the ice and will likely need the balance of next week to fully recover. Don't expect to see Brodin in game action until Friday at the earliest.

Coach Mike Yeo said that Jonas Brodin may skate Friday.

He suffered a broken cheekbone Tuesday when he was hit in the face by a shot, but Yeo stated that no surgery is planned to occur. If Brodin is on the ice Friday then he'll likely be sporting a full cage on his helmet.

Jonas Brodin's facial injury is a broken cheekbone.

Jonas Brodin scored in Minnesota's 2-1 shootout defeat on Saturday.

Brodin has three goals and six points in nine games this season. The sophomore defenseman is averaging an incredible 25:42 minutes per contest in 2013-14. If you're hurting for a blueliner in standard league and he's available, then he's worth taking a chance on.

Jonas Brodin earned an assist and logged 26:51 of ice time in Minnesota's 2-1 win over Buffalo.

He has five points in six games this year after scoring 11 in 45 matches last season. The sophomore defender, who was chosen 10th overall in the 2011 draft, has been an excellent defense partner for Ryan Suter. His offensive contributions have made him a much more attractive fantasy option this year.
