Wild Recall Scandella; Host Ducks Tonight
The Minnesota Wild have recalled defenseman Marco Scandella and forward Kris Foucault from the Houston Aeros of the AHL. The roster spots were available when Brad Staubitz was sent to Houston and defenseman Clayton Stoner was put on injured reserve with a lower body injury.
Stoner joins forwards Pierre-Marc Bouchard, Guillaume Latendresse and Jarod Palmer on IR. Forward Cal Clutterbuck also sustained a lower body injury Saturday against Columbus. The Wild host Anaheim at 6:30 tonight, pregame on WJON at 6:05. Minnesota has 58 points and is 5 points back of Phoenix for the 8th and final playoff spot in the West.
