Suter was charged with four penalties and spent a total of eight minutes in the box during Sunday's win over the Jets.

The penalties put too much of a dent into Suter's league-leading minutes total, as he saw only about 50 seconds less of ice time than the 29:13 he's averaging for the season. The blueliner was able to finish the game with a plus-1 rating to bring his mark up to plus-10 over 17 games, but he's fallen into a bit of a scoring drought of late. Suter has collected only one point over his last six contests.

Suter picked up an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

Suter has now registered an assist in five of the team's last six contests, to give him seven on the season. He's been as dependable on the blue line as expected, with a plus-10 rating and an average of 29:00 minutes of ice time to go along with his eight points in 11 games. He should continue to be among the top defensemen going forward.

Suter registered an assist in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Rangers.

As was expected heading into the season, Suter leads the league in average ice time (28:25) over his seven games, but it's his contributions in the scoring categories and plus/minus rating that have made him one of the most valuable fantasy blueliners thus far. Suter's plus-7 rating is good for a tie for second place among all defensemen, while his five points in seven games are also a tick better than the per-game point production he provided in 2013-14.

Suter had a goal and an assist in 26 minutes of ice time in Thursday's win over Colorado.

Suter led the NHL in ice time by averaging 29:25 last season. His 25:63 in Thursday's game may be a byproduct of a blowout rather than the team trying to give him more rest this year. Either way, Suter should contribute heavily in the Wild's offense.
