Kris Foucault got a game in on Tuesday and was sent back to Houston. Last night, Cody Almond got in against Winnipeg, and today he got sent back. Rather than youngsters, the Wild are going with a veteran again, recalling Jed Ortmeyer from Houston today.
This will be the fifth time this season that Ortmeyer has gotten the call to join the big club. He’s played 10 games for Minnesota this season and registered one assist. While in Houston, he’s put up eight goals and 10 assists in 34 games.
