Wild Bring Defenseman Brodin Up For NHL Debut
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild have recalled defenseman Jonas Brodin from their AHL affiliate.
The 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft is one of several well-regarded prospects in the Wild’s system. Brodin played last season in Sweden’s Elite League. The Wild’s first-round draft pick in 2012, Matthew Dumba, is also on the roster but hasn’t played in a game yet.
Brodin’s arrival gives defenseman Jared Spurgeon more time to heal. He hasn’t practiced since taking a puck off his foot in the game against Nashville on Tuesday.
