Minnesota Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin took a nasty puck to the face in the Wild's 2-0 win over the Nashville Predators, absorbing Gabriel Bourque's clearing attempt with his teeth, and Pro Hockey Talk's James O'Brien posted a video of the incident from an NBC-telecast game...
After the game, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Michael Russo updated Brodin's status, and his report is somewhat sketchy in terms of details but still the best assessment of the situation thus far:
Defenseman Jonas Brodin, whom I jinxed with this Scotty Bowman-centric story in Monday’s paper, was injured 2:54 into tonight’s game when he took a puck directly to the face off Gabriel Bourque’s dump-in.
Brodin was taken to local hospital for x-rays, and he has been released. Coach Mike Yeo didn’t have an update on Brodin’s condition, but hope for a root canal, not a jaw/chin injury. GM Chuck Fletcher just emailed me that an update will be provided Wednesday.
Cue the Wild:
