Dubnyk (lower body) will travel with the Wild on a four-game road trip that starts Sunday in Chicago, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Minnesota's top netminder is listed as "week-to-week" with his injury, but his accompanying the team on the road trip suggests that there's an outside chance that he returns before Christmas. In the meantime, the Wild will rely heavily on Alex Stalock, with recent call-up Steve Michalek available in a pinch.
Dubnyk (lower body) is considered week-to-week due to his injury.
The news effectively rules Dubnyk out for at least a week, which would likely see him miss the Wild's next four contests. Prior to getting hurt, the 2004 first-round pick had registered victories in three of his previous four outings and appeared to be working his way back to being the dominant netminder he has been the last two seasons. The veteran's absence will open the door for Alex Stalock to take over as the No. 1 in Minnesota. Given the length of his injury, Dubnyk is a lock for injured reserve once the team files the necessary paperwork.
Dubnyk left after the first period Tuesday against the Flames after aggravating a lower-body injury. He's expected to sit out until at least early next week.
Dubnyk stopped all 10 shots he faced to drop his GAA to 2.69 on Tuesday.
Dubnyk (lower body) is unlikely to be available for Thursday's tilt versus Toronto, Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune reports.
Dubnyk will undergo an MRI on Wednesday to determine the severity of the injury, which certainly doesn't bode well for his long-term availability. The netminder had been performing well of late -- a 3-1-0 record and .930 save percentage in his last four outings -- prior to getting hurt, including having saved all 10 shots he faced before exiting Tuesday's game. The team will need to recall a goalie from AHL Iowa, with Niklas Svedberg being the leading candidate.
Dubnyk suffered a lower-body injury during Tuesday's game against the Flames and is questionable to return.
Dubnyk stopped all 10 shots that came his way in the opening frame, but backup Alex Stalock led the troops onto the ice for the second period. It's unclear exactly when this injury was endured, and more information on the nature and severity should be available after the game.
