Injury
Granlund (groin) will be a game-time decision on Friday.
Granlund has been bothered by a groin injury since the season opener but he was back on the ice for Thursday’s practice and skated on the top-line and top power-play unit, making him a game-time decision for tomorrow. Monitor his status during the pre-game skate, but it looks like he will return and it’s a huge addition for the Wild who are quite banged up right now.

Injury
Parise (undisclosed) suffered a setback in Monday’s practice; questionable to return this week.
The Wild were hopeful that Parise would make his season debut during their back-to-back on Friday/Saturday, but after lasting just 25 minutes in today’s practice, that seems unlikely now. There’s no word how serious the setback is, but consider him questionable for this week.

Injury
Granlund (groin) had a “good skate” on Monday.
Granlund has missed the last three games with a groin injury that he was dealing with in training camp. Granlund returned to the ice on the weekend and had a “good skate” this morning, which suggests he might not be far from returning to the lineup. The Wild are off until Friday, so monitor his status as the week progresses.

Goalie Start
Dubnyk will start Saturday vs. the Blue Jackets.
Dubnyk gave up two goals on 38 shots in the Wild’s win in Chicago on Thursday. It was a great game for Dubnyk but a rough one for the Wild, who lost Charlie Coyle, Nino Niederreiter and Marcus Foligno all in the same contest. The banged up Wild team will face a Columbus team that is averaging 2.75 goals per game.

Injury
Niederreiter will missed at least three weeks with a high left ankle sprain.
Despite taking Zach Parise’s spot in the top-6 to start the season, Niederreiter had no points in the first three games of the season before getting hurt on Thursday. This is a massive loss for the Wild, who also lost Charlie Coyle (right fibula fracture) on Thursday night.
Nino Niederreiter
Oct. 13, 2017, 5:01 p.m.
Injury
Foligno will miss a minimum of one week with a left facial fracture.
Foligno dropped the mitts with Blackhawks’ forward John Hayden and was absolutely devastated by a right haymaker, fracturing a facial bone in the process. Foligno joins a long list of injured Wild forwards, but is only expected to miss a week or so.
Marcus Foligno
Oct. 13, 2017, 5:01 p.m.
Injury
Coyle will miss 6-8 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a right fibula fracture.
With Coyle expected to miss at least a month and a half, the Wild have placed him on LTIR which opens up a roster spot and gives them some cap relief. This is a huge loss for the Wild as Coyle already had two assists in three games and is coming off of a season in which he recorded 56 points (18G / 38A) in 82 games.
Charlie Coyle
Oct. 13, 2017, 5:01 p.m.
Injury
Foligno (face) has been ruled out of Saturday’s game.
Foligno was absolutely blasted by a John Hayden haymaker in a fight last night and may have suffered a facial fracture. Foligno could miss some time beyond Saturday’s game vs. Columbus.
Marcus Foligno
Oct. 13, 2017, 12:53 p.m.
Injury
Niederreiter will not play Saturday vs. the Blue Jackets.
Niederreiter left Thursday’s game after playing 13:12 TOI after sustaining what is believed to be an ankle injury. Niederreiter got tangled up with Blackhawks’ forward Tanner Kero and will miss at least Saturday’s game vs. Columbus. The Wild also lost Marcus Foligno and Charlie Coyle last night, so they’re banged up heading into Saturday.
Nino Niederreiter
Oct. 13, 2017, 12:53 p.m.
Injury
Coyle (lower-body) will not play on Saturday.
Coyle was hit by a shot in Thursday’s win over the Blackhawks and has already been ruled out for Saturday’s contest. The Wild are extremely banged up up front with Coyle joining Zach Parise, Mikael Granlund, Nino Niederreiter and Marcus Foligno in the press box.
Charlie Coyle
Oct. 13, 2017, 12:52 p.m.
Call up / Send down
The Wild have recalled Luke Kunin from Iowa (AHL).
Kunin, 19, was the No.15 overall pick in the 2016 NHL draft and comes up looking to make his NHL debut this weekend. Kunin turned pro at the end of last season after two years at the University of Wisconsin. In 14 AHL games, Kunin has six goals and four assists (10 points).

Goalie Start
Dubnyk will start Thursday in Chicago.
Dubnyk allowed four goals on 31 shots in the Wild’s opening night loss in Detroit. Alex Stalock started Saturday in Carolina, so look for Dubnyk to start tonight after a full week off. Tonight he will face a Blackhawks team that is 3-0-1 while averaging 5.25 goals for per game through their first four games. The 31-year-old was 1-1-0 with a 3.89 GAA and .893 SV% in three starts vs. Chicago last year.

Injury
Granlund (undisclosed) will miss at least the next four games.
Granlund missed Saturday’s game in Carolina as well as Monday and Tuesday’s practices and after the session head coach Bruce Boudreau said that Granlund will miss at least the next four games, keeping him sidelined until at least October 24th vs. Vancouver. With Granlund out, Marcus Foligno is expected to start with Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker.

Line Change
Olofsson is expected to dress as a seventh defenseman on Saturday.
Olofsson sat as a healthy scratch in the season opener in Detroit, but with Mikael Granlund battling an undisclosed injury he will draw in as a seventh defenseman tonight in Carolina. The 22-year-old blueliner had three assists in 13 games with Minnesota last season, but spent most of the year in Iowa (AHL) where he amassed 24 points (6G / 18A) across 59 contests.
