Spurgeon collected an assist in Friday's Game 5 victory over the Blues.

With three points (one goal, two assists) in the five games, Spurgeon ranks as the Wild's most productive defenseman in the early stages of the postseason. In addition, Spurgeon has put 10 shots on net while supplying nine hits and eight blocks during the series, providing the sort of all-around production that should give him a decent floor in daily formats even if he fails to record a point on a given night.

Spurgeon (rest) will not play Saturday against the Blues, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Both the Blues and Wild are resting a number of key players with their playoff spots secure, while also exhibiting a bit of gamesmanship due to the high probability of the two teams facing each other in the first round. Spurgeon will finish the regular season with nine goals and 25 points over 66 games.

Spurgeon recorded an assist and three shots on goal in Thursday's 4-2 triumph over the Predators.

Spurgeon had been held without a point in his previous four games. Though he's missed 15 games this season due to injury and illness, Spurgeon has still turned in effective outputs from the blue line, posting 25 points and a career-high nine goals. He'll turn 26 in November, and if his health cooperates, a breakout season could be in store.

Spurgeon scored a goal, helped out on another and posted a plus-3 rating Tuesday in a 6-2 win over the Devils.

A much sharper game for Spurgeon after he put up a quiet showing in his first game after coming off IR due to a concussion. He only owns 22 points in 53 games, but nine of them have been goals; wise fantasy owners will file his name away as a cheap, high-upside draft choice for next year.

Spurgeon missed eight games because of the concussion, but skated Friday morning and appears finally ready to return to the lineup. The blueliner has 18 points in 50 games this season with a plus-1 rating, averaging 23:08 of ice time. His activation indicates he should be good to go Sunday against the Avalanche.

Spurgeon (head) participated in Tuesday's morning skate, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Spurgeon didn't appear to be facing any limitations during the session and is considered a possibility to play Thursday against the Capitals. However, with the Wild not holding practice Wednesday and thus not being able to make another assessment of Spurgeon's condition, the blueliner might have to wait until the weekend to get back in the lineup.
