Minnesota Wild defenceman Greg Pateryn is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury, the team announced on Saturday.

Pateryn, 30, appeared in just 20 games for Minnesota during the regular season after missing the first part of the 2019-20 campaign because of bilateral core muscle repair surgery.

The Sterling Heights, Mich., native is in the second year of a three-year, $6.75-million contract he signed with the Wild on July 1, 2018, and has a goal and 10 points in 100 games for Minnesota.

The team also announced its training camp roster on Saturday. The Wild’s camp gets underway Monday.

The news of Pateryn’s injury and the release of the team’s training camp roster comes less than 24 hours after the NHL and NHLPA ratified the league’s return-to-play plans and an extension of the collective bargaining agreement.

The Wild will be facing off against the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, with the first game tentatively scheduled to be played Aug. 2.
