Minnesota Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin played just 1:56 in the first period of Friday's Game 7 against the Vegas Golden Knights before departing with an apparent injury.

Brodin was slow getting up after Nicolas Roy hit him hard into the boards early in the contest.

The 27-year-old had a career year offensively with 23 points in 53 games, but he's regarded as one of the best defensive defensemen in the league.
