Minnesota Wild Big Dude Injury Update: Not good!

The Minnesota Wild are just over a week away from starting their first-round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues, and head coach Dean Evason just dealt us a dubious hand prior to Friday’s game.

Evason says Jordan Greenway is “ahead of” Matt Dumba and Dumba isn’t “shooting exceptionally well.” While they hope Dumba is ready for Game 1 of the playoffs, Evason called it “a wildcard.”

Two of the players that the Wild rely on to bring physicality with a touch of offensive skill are still out of the lineup and while the timeline of their injuries were not specified earlier, it appears that we all underestimated just how long they would be out for.
