Another Wild defenseman, Christian Folin, had surgery Monday on his right shoulder to repair a labral tear. With right wing Mikael Granlund also dealing with a broken hand suffered in Game 1 against St. Louis last month, the Wild had at least three skaters playing through injuries in the first-round series. Granlund didn't need surgery.

The Wild lost in five games to the Blues.
