Saturday is proving to be quite a bad day for the Minnesota Wild, with arguably two of the organization's most important players suffering an injury in the same game.

The Wild were taking on the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon and would lose both forward Kirill Kaprizov as well as goaltender Filip Gustavsson to injury during the course of the game. It is unclear how Gustavsson was injured but the Wild have confirmed that he has suffered a lower body injury and will not return to today's game.

The situation surrounding Kaprizov is considerably more obvious as the Wild forward showed immediate discomfort after being on the receiving end of multiple cross checks courtesy of veteran Jets defenseman Brendan Dillon. Although Kaprizov would attempt to remain on the bench and push through the pain, he too would eventually leave the game and not return.

Here's a look at the sequence that led to the Kaprizov injury:

As Wild insider Mike Russo points out, the timing of Gustavsson's injury here could hardly be any worse for the Wild. Gustavsson has shined under head coach John Hynes and having his momentum derailed by injury would be incredibly unfortunate.
