Tuesday's 2-1 win over the San Jose Sharks was costly for the Minnesota Wild, as winger Devin Setoguchi received what has only been described as a lower extremity injury. Setoguchi will miss Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Kings now, and could be out for even longer:
"I hope not, but with these things, we won't know until we get word from a doctor," said coach Mike Yeo, who was consoling a disappointed Setoguchi after Tuesday's game and told him to "keep your head up."
"We've overcome injuries so far and we're going to have to keep doing it. I don't think too many people are going to feel sorry for us."
Setoguchi has been a solid performer this season for Minnesota with eight goals and five assists in 13 games. He is coming off the best season of his career last year in San Jose when he had 22 goals and 19 assists for the Sharks.
