Casey Wellman, who was recalled from Houston yesterday but did not play in last night’s win in Columbus, has been reassigned to the Houston Aeros.
There still might be another Aero joining the team later. Defenseman Marek Zidlicky came out of last night’s game after taking a high hit. That left the Wild with five defensemen for the remainder of the game.
If it’s determined that Zidlicky can’t go, the Wild would either have to call up a player, or hope that one of its injured defensemen would be ready to play tomorrow against Colorado.
Mike Lundin, who was with the team during its five-game trip and has been working his way back from a back injury, may be an option if he’s ready to play. The Wild will hold a team meeting today at Xcel Energy Center and some players may skate.
We should know more on the injury situation by then.
