Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin will be out for six weeks after he fractured his left tibia and will miss six weeks of training camp.
Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said Thursday the team expects Brodin to be ready for training camp in late November or early December.
Brodin has not missed a game since January.
He missed his first three games of the season because of a strained left calf, then returned on March 19 with the team’s top defensive pair of Jared Spurgeon and Ryan Suter.
Broden played in five of the team�s six games and scored his first NHL goal Oct. 1 at Dallas.
He will miss at least six weeks for the first time since April 2015.
He has scored 10 goals and added 15 assists in 54 games this season.
