Minnesota Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin will be sidelined for three-to-four weeks after undergoing hand surgery, the team announced Wednesday.

Brodin suffered the injury in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Across 53 games this season, Brodin has recorded five goals and 10 assists. His 21:21 average ice-time ranks fourth among Minnesota blue-liners.

The Wild remain in the thick of the playoff race, holding down the final wild-card spot with 63 points. Both the Anaheim Ducks and the Colorado Avalanche trail Minnesota by one point.
