Wild head coach Mike Yeo said Brodin is "sore in a couple different spots" and is listed as day-to-day.
Brodin crashed violently into the end-boards after being checked from behind by Chris Kreider on Monday. He returned for the third period of that game, but was too banged to play last night. Brodin reportedly had his left hand bandaged up after Monday's game, but it sounds like he is battling a a couple of minor injuries.
The Wild have signed Jonas Brodin to a six-year, $25 million deal.
Brodin, 21, is in his third NHL season and has one assist through two games after scoring eight goals with 11 assists (19 points) in 79 games a season ago. This is a very good deal for both sides as they have locked up a key member of their blueline for the next six years.
Brodin (cheek) will play tonight.
Brodin missed three games with a broken cheekbone that he suffered on October 22. He will be in the lineup tonight vs. Montreal with a college-style cage. The young defenseman has three goals and three assists while averaging 23:14 TOI in 10 games.

Brodin (face) headed out to ice with teammates today.
Brodin has missed three games after breaking his cheekbone last Tuesday. Skating on Wednesday, means there is a good chance that he will be in the lineup on Friday. Brodin will be wearing a college-style cage when he returns, but the Wild could use his 23-plus TOI back on the blueline.

Brodin (cheek) could play tonight.
Brodin, who has a broken cheekbone, skated on his own Sunday and is close to trying to play through the injury inside a college-style facial cage. “I don’t think he’s been off long enough here where we have to worry about conditioning,” Wild head coach Mike Yeo said. Monitor Brodin's status throughout the day.
As of now, coach Mike Yeo says no surgery is planned and Brodin may even skate tomorrow, although maybe not with the team. Brodin will obviously wear a full cage for awhile. So cautious good news right now.
It sounds like Brodin isn't going to be out for too long, so you can hold onto the emerging young defenseman while he recovers.
Defenseman Jonas Brodin sustained a broken cheekbone when hit by a dump-in on his second shift of last night's 2-0 win over Nashville.
He is out indefinitely and a timetable will be announced once it's determined. As of now, the Wild says this is relatively good news because there was originally a concern he had a broken jaw. More after practice, but as of now, Matt Dumba has taken Brodin's spot on the No. 2 power-play unit
Brodin was struck in the face by a puck off the stick of Nashville’s Gabriel Bourque at 2:54 of the first period and left Tuesday's game and did not return.
Wild head coach Mike Yeo said Brodin was taken to a hospital for X-rays, but the coach had no update on his condition. This is a tough break for the 20-year-old, who was off to a great start in his sophomore year. He has three goals and three assists (six points) in the Wild's first 10 games while averaging 25:46 TOI (before last night's 1:01).
Yeo says Brodin will play with Suter tonight.
Brodin has only played two games in his NHL career and he is already being moved up to the Wild's top pair in the absence of Jared Spurgeon. If Brodin can play well while Spurgeon is out of the lineup he could stay on that top pair in the future.
