The Minnesota Wild dressing room needs a deep clean.

Head coach Mike Yeo revealed Thursday that defenseman Ryan Suter has been diagnosed with a case of the mumps.

Yeo, however, isn't prepared to rule Suter out of Friday's tilt with the Anaheim Ducks.

"I'm not even ready to rule him out tomorrow, Yeo said. "It affects people differently."

Suter is the fifth member of the Wild to contract the virus this season, joining defensemen Marco Scandella, Jonas Brodin, Keith Ballard and Christian Folin.
