January 2012 - After recovering from broken clavicle, Brodin played one AHL game on January 23. He was held without a point or a shot on goal. Despite this, the Wild recalled him to the big club, figuring he has shaken off enough rust. The lack of rehab games at the AHL level indicates Minnesota's eagerness to see him at the NHL level. - Dobber
December 2012 - Jonas Brodin has been sidelined with a broken clavicle and it appears that he will miss the 2013 World Junior Championships for Team Sweden. He was expected to be a vital part of Sweden's defensive core as the team defends its Gold Medal title. The injury came as a result of a Taylor Hall hit in AHL action and the injury to Brodin has him stalled at two goals, four points, plus-2 through his first eight AHL games. Brendan Ross
July 2011 - Brodin plans to come to camp and do everything he can to make the team. He is close to NHL ready, so making the Wild would not come as a shock. - Dobber
April, 2011 - Brodin has finished his second pro season in the Elitserien before he has turned 19. He is very good skater and plays very mature game in his own end. He gives a good opening pass and has good puck-handling skills but he needs to improve his shot to be a fantasy worthy player. Brodin signed a three year entry level contract with Minnesota last summer. He is a candidate to represent Sweden in the 2012 World Championships. He will probably play at least one more season in Elitserien.
He will certainly be a NHL defender in the near future, but his upside is quite modest at least for now.
