Spurgeon Activated; Kassian Placed on Waivers

The Minnesota Wild has taken defenseman Jared Spurgeon off of Injured Reserve and placed forward Matt Kassian on waivers.

The 23-year-old blueliner has missed the last nine games with a lower body injury suffered in a game against the Nashville Predators on Jan. 22. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound native of Edmonton, Alberta, has tallied one assist in three games with Minnesota this season and owns 36 points (7-29=36) in 126 contests with the Wild.

Kassian, 26, has not appeared in a game this season. The 6-foot-4, 232-pound native of Edmonton, Alberta, has scored two goals and racked up 67 penalty minutes (PIM) in 28 career matches with Minnesota.

Minnesota plays at the Vancouver Canucks tonight at 9 p.m. CT on FOX Sports North and KFAN 100.3 FM before returning home to host the Colorado Avalanche Thursday at 7 p.m.
