With the Wild down to 12 healthy forwards and the team about to embark on a nine-day, four-game road trip, Cody Almond was recalled from the Aeros this morning. Almond is scheduled to land in the Twin Cities just before 11:00 a.m. when the Wild hits the ice for practice at Xcel Energy Center.
This will be the third recall of the season for Almond, who has played four games for the Wild this season. In 43 games with the Aeros, the rugged center has posted 11 goals and 12 assists for 23 points. He leads Houston with seven power play goals and ranks second on the club in goals and penalty minutes (82).
