Minnesota Wild DFS SPIN
Jared Spurgeon (upper body) is expected to be unavailable for at least the Wild’s next two games, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports Wednesday.
Spurgeon will have missed 14 games when Minnesota faces Dallas on Sunday. The continued absence of the veteran no doubt factored into the club’s decision to bring in Zach Bogosian while trading away Calen Addison on Wednesday. Whenever Spurgeon is given the all-clear, he could find himself slotting into the No. 1 power-play unit which would bolster his offensive upside.
New York Rangers DFS SPIN
Jonathan Quick is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports Wednesday. Quick has a 3-0-1 record, 1.77 GAA and .935 save percentage in five outings this season. Igor Shesterkin has missed the Rangers’ last two contests with a lower-body injury, so New York might be without its top two goaltenders for Thursday’s home game against Minnesota. The Rangers recalled Louis Domingue and Dylan Garand from AHL Hartford as a result.
