Cody Almond was recalled by the Wild today and will join the team in Atlanta tonight. This is Almond’s second call up this season. He was promoted last week and played in the Wild’s last two games, both wins, on Friday and Saturday. He was reassigned to Houston on Sunday. He has two goals and four assists in 12 games with Houston this season. He has not recorded a point with the Wild and has averaged 5:22 of ice time.
Almond’s call up was necessary with the glut of injuries on the Wild front lines. Antti Miettinen appears ready to return from a concussion, but Chuck Kobasew and Guillaume Latendresse will not travel with the team this week due to lower body injuries. Marek Zidlicky remains a question mark for the trip, but he did skate on his own today.
