What we know about Ryan Suter and the Wild’s prospects
The Minnesota Wild announced Friday that Suter will not be part of their upcoming training camp and preseason schedule.
Suter’s absence leaves the Wild with a glut of forwards, with Niklas Backstrom and Erik Haula being the only other players in camp who have NHL experience.
“Ryan Suter is not in our plans for training camp, preseason or the season,” Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said in a statement.
“He will not participate in the training camp practice and the preseason games, and he will not appear in any of our preseason games.
We thank him for his hard work, and wish him the best of luck in the coming season.”
Suter was signed by the Wild as an undrafted free agent in 2016, but the 22-year-old never made his NHL debut.
He appeared in five games for the Wild in 2017-18, scoring two goals and three assists for four points.
He was signed to a two-year contract with a cap hit of $3.1 million in 2018-19.
Sutter has not appeared in a game since the end of the 2016-17 season.
He also missed most of the 2017-19 season after he underwent season-ending shoulder surgery.
