Defenseman Mike Lundin, who has yet to make his Minnesota Wild debut, has been assigned to the Houston Aeros for a conditioning stint. Lundin is expected to be in the lineup tonight when the Aeros host Maxime Fortunus and the Texas Stars.
Lundin will likely spend the weekend with the Aeros before coming back up. Casey Wellman will also be in Houston. After being recalled for the second time this week, Wellman was reassigned to the Aeros.
Marco Scandella will be placed on injured reserve to allow for Lundin to be recalled.
One last thing for your Friday. Fans coming to tomorrow’s game against St. Louis are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items and/or monetary donations for the Minnesota Wild Toyota Food Drive. Donations will be accepted at Gates 1 through 5 and will be open from 6:00 pm through the end of the first period.
