Suter missed the last two games because of a suspension for his elbow on Steve Downie last Tuesday. He will be back in the lineup tonight paired with Jonas Brodin. He has one goal and 22 assists (23 points) in 40 games this season, but has just one assist in his last 10.
The NHL has suspended Ryan Suter for two games for elbowing Penguins forward Steve Downie.
Suter will miss the Wild's game against the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday and against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday in St. Paul. He will forfeit $81,058.72 in salary because of the suspension. The Wild called up Matt Dumba from the American Hockey League on Wednesday and will insert Jon Blum into the lineup Thursday.
Suter (mumps) is expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday.
Suter has missed the last two games with mumps, but was on the ice for the Wild’s practice on Monday and is expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday. He has 13 points (1G / 12A) in 23 games this season.
Suter took part in the Wild’s morning skate which was a good sign that he might play, but the Wild will wisely hold him out tonight and allow him to have the weekend to recover because they are off until next Tuesday. Chrisitan Folin is expected to remain in the lineup for Suter.
Suter has been diagnosed with mumps; but not ruled out for Friday.
Suter missed Wednesday’s game and Thursday’s practice with an illness which has now been diagnosed as mumps. Despite mumps keeping many other players out for multiple games, head coach Mike Yeo would not rule Suter out for tomorrow, saying “it affects people differently.” While it is good to hear he might play tomorrow, the most likely scenario is that he sits and rests over the weekend since the Wild are off until Tuesday following tomorrow’s game.
Suter underwent blood-work on Tuesday to determine whether or not surer has the mumps virus. There is no word on how long the Wild expect Suter to be out, but he will for sure miss tonight’s game which means Christian Folin is in.
Suter (illness) is doubtful at minimum for Wednesday's game.
Suter missed Tuesday's practice and did not take part in the Wild's morning skate. He is "doubtful at a minimum" according to head coach Mike Yeo, so expect Suter to sit tonight vs. the Canadiens. If he sits expect Christian Folin to be in the lineup.
Suter left Thursday's game with an undisclosed injury and did not return. The fact that he isn't skating this morning indicates he likely isn't going to play tonight. Either Prosser and Falk will enter the lineup to replace Suter, and Jared Spurgeon will move to the top d-pair.
