Defenseman Marco Scandella had his finger broken when he blocked a shot by Columbus’ Derek Dorsett on Saturday. Shortly after the game’s conclusion, the Wild recalled Nate Prosser, who will make his season debut tomorrow against the Montreal Canadiens.
Prosser has posted 8 goals and 15 assists through 68 games this season. He appeared in the Wild’s final three games last season and notched one assist.
The Wild remains short on defenseman with Marek Zidlicky still dealing with a lower body injury.
As a reminder, tomorrow’s game against Montreal will be played at 5:00 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for 6:00.
