Defenseman Nick Schultz missed Saturday’s game and will miss the final four games of the season with post-concussion syndrome.
Schultz says he has been experiencing symptoms for awhile. He had vision problems after being crushed by San Jose’s Jamal Mayers on Jan. 22 and missed three games after being elbowed in the head by Calgary’s Tom Kostopoulos on Dec. 18.
Schultz, the Wild’s all-time leader with 681 games, missed the final three games of the 2008-09 season with a concussion.
