Rau Reassigned; Falk To Play

Eden Prairie native Chad Rau won’t be the 13th Minnesotan to play for the Wild, yet. Rau was reassigned to Houston today as the Wild skates against the Calgary Flames tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

The move frees up a roster spot, which will be filled by defenseman Justin Falk, who will return to the lineup after missing 11 games with an upper-body injury. Falk was placed on the injured reserve on November 27.

With Mikko Koivu, Devin Setoguchi, Guillaume Latendresse and Casey Wellman out of the lineup with injuries, the Wild is expected to dress seven defensemen tonight against the Flames.
