Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon has a concussion and could be finished for the season, and coach Mike Yeo is upset with the elbow that caused it all.
It happened 7 minutes, 57 seconds into Thursday's game with Calgary at Xcel Energy Center when Flames forward Alex Tanguay caught Spurgeon in the head with an elbow that Yeo called "dirty."
"It's a flying elbow," Yeo said of the hit. "The elbow is extended, and almost above his head. It's almost above the player's head -- not Jared Spurgeon's head -- when it makes contact. So this is twice now we've lost Jared Spurgeon -- who is really an underrated player around this league, and an incredibly important piece to our lineup -- off dirty hits, real bad hits, this year."
