The Wild is just about to hit the ice at Xcel Energy Center for the first of three practice days before heading to Phoenix on Wednesday. There is a bit of news before that takes place, however. Defenseman Justin Falk has been reassigned to the Houston Aeros. Falk was recalled from Houston on November 23 as insurance for the defensive group with seven games in 11 days. He did not see any action during that callup.
Falk’s departure currently leaves the Wild with six healthy defensemen, including Jared Spurgeon. I hope to have word on Clayton Stoner’s status after today’s practice.
