Newly re-signed Minnesota Wild forward Mikael Granlund recently suffered a rolled ankle while on a run in his native Finland, and will be unable to engage in offseason training for two weeks, a source told Michael Russo of the Star Tribune.

Granlund inked a three-year, $17.25-million extension at the beginning of the month, and is coming off a season in which he led the Wild in scoring with 69 points.

If Granlund's injury affects his ability to be ready for training camp in September, the start to Minnesota's season could look a lot different.

The Wild kick off their 2017-18 schedule Oct. 5 with a visit to the Motor City to take on the Red Wings.
