Koivu Sidelined...Sabres D Myers Suspended 3 Games 1/6/14
ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild will be without captain Mikko Koivu (KOY'-voo) for the next month.
The Wild have placed Koivu on injured reserve, when their first-line center and leading scorer with 35 points in 44 games underwent surgery to repair a broken ankle. Koivu was hit by a puck Saturday against Washington. The Wild said the operation went as planned and Koivu was expected to be fully recovered and playing again in approximately four weeks.
