The Minnesota Wild are likely heading to the playoffs, but their top defenseman won’t be coming along.
Suter had already set a career-high with 45 assists and tied his career-high in points with 51. He was also a force on the power play with 23 power-play points.
Production aside, Suter also commanded a ton of minutes at 26:46 per game, second highest in the NHL.
The Wild are currently third in the Central Division with 96 points and would play the Winnipeg Jets in the first round if the playoffs started today.
