Mikael Granlund has missed the last three games with a concussion, and it appears he’ll miss a few more.

On Wednesday, the Minnesota sophomore was “essentially” shut down, according to the Star-Tribune. Granlund skated on Monday but will now be kept off ice and on injured reserve until symptoms clear.

Wild head coach Mike Yeo didn’t sound optimistic about a speedy return.

“We’re going to keep [Granlund] off right now,” Yeo explained. “He skated the other day and we’re at the point now where lets just take some time off here and make sure we get this right.

“I just know that we’re not making progress, and so what we’re doing right now, we have to take a different approach.”

Granlund, 21, suffered the concussion on a hit from Coyotes defenseman Connor Murphy on Nov. 27 — Granlund’s first game back after missing a pair with an upper-body injuruy.

The Finnish forward has 12 points in 24 games for the Wild this year, and is averaging just under 16 minutes per game.

    Those symptoms are probably just from being dropped as a baby, wouldn’t you say 33? =)

      stay classy a__face. in case you haven’t noticed, concussions are kind of a big deal in sports these days. the 765 million dollar lawsuit the NFL just settled, is something that could completely ruin the NHL, since last anyone checked, the NFL is a little more successful than the NHL. The NHL is pooping the pants over this.

        Chill out. I’m busting some one’s balls and it ain’t you. Another poster suggested in a different thread that someone’s post concussion syndrome symptoms could have been from being dropped as a baby. I thought it was the most asinine comment I have ever heard. This comment was to give him a hard time. Hence, “33”
