The Minnesota Wild has the day off today to travel back to Minnesota from California after a thrilling 3-2 overtime victory in Anaheim last night. Two players won’t be joining them on the flight.
Forwards Warren Peters and Jed Ortmeyer were both reassigned to the Houston Aeros this morning. Both players appeared in the Wild’s victory last night, with Ortmeyer logging 8:31 of ice time with one shot on goal and two penalty minutes. Peters played 9:39 and registered two shots. Ortmeyer also played in Los Angeles on Thursday.
