In a disheartening turn of events for Minnesota Wild fans, the team's captain, Jared Spurgeon, is set to sit out the rest of the season due to injury.

The announcement came from the team's President of Hockey Operations and General Manager, Bill Guerin. Spurgeon is slated to undergo left hip surgery on February 6, followed by back surgery about a month later.

The news raises concerns about the team's defensive capabilities for the remainder of the season, as Spurgeon's leadership and skills on the ice will undoubtedly be missed. However, there is a silver lining as the timeline for his recovery aligns with the upcoming season's training camp in September, offering hope that the captain will return to the lineup at full strength.

Wild supporters will undoubtedly be eagerly anticipating Spurgeon's triumphant comeback to the ice.
