Devan Dubnyk's injury isn't considered serious.

The Wild said today their starting goaltender suffered a "mild groin strain" in Saturday's 3-0 home win over the Avalanche.

Head coach Mike Yeo said the 29-year-old will be held out Monday, when Minnesota is in Colorado for a road contest against the Avalanche.

The Wild don't have another game then until Friday – the Star Tribune says the Wild will return to Minnesota during the time off and practice Tuesday. According to Yeo, the team will see how Dubnyk is doing during the week, and it's possibly he could play this weekend.

Dubnyk injured his left leg while making a save. Darcy Kuemper, who replaced Dubnyk in that contest, will start Monday against the Avalanche.
