ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota Wild left wing Jason Zucker will miss the next four to six weeks after surgery to repair a broken right leg suffered in a recent game.


The Wild announced Friday night that Zucker’s operation by Dr. Fernando Peña in Bloomington, Minnesota, went as planned. He fractured his fibula Sunday at Chicago and sat out the following two games.
