Defenseman Jonas Brodin, a 2011 first-round pick who would be a roster contender for the Wild if the lockout ends, will miss several weeks after breaking his clavicle Friday night in a game between Houston and Oklahoma City in the American Hockey League.

Center Mikael Granlund, a 2010 first-round pick by the Wild, strained a muscle in the lower part of his right leg a few minutes later and will miss a few weeks.

General Manager Chuck Fletcher said Brodin will come to Minnesota early next week to be examined by Wild doctors, but typically players miss six to eight weeks with this kind of injury. Brodin was nailed behind the net by Edmonton Oilers 2011 first-overall pick Taylor Hall, who was making his AHL debut.

"He's stunned," Fletcher said of Brodin. "It's not good, but broken bones should heal and he'll get good care. It's a shame. He was playing so well and getting great experience."

As for Granlund, who was playing his first game since being named AHL rookie of the month, Fletcher said, "You see him go down and think the worst, but this may be relatively good news."
