The Wild will assign both Brett Bulmer and Josh Caron to the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League for the remainder of the season and playoffs. The move will likely come later today or over the weekend. Both will be eligible for the Calder Cup playoffs because they are signed junior players.
Both players will join the Aeros because their junior seasons have come to an end after being eliminated from playoffs.
After playing nine games with the Wild at the beginning of the season, Bulmer joined Kelowna in the Western Hockey League. The 2010 second-round pick scored 34 goals and 62 points in 53 games with the Rockets. The 6’3” forward, who plays with an edge, also racked up 93 penalty minutes.
Caron signed with the Wild as a free agent in 2010. The hard-nosed, 6’4” defenseman played with the Everett Silvertips of the WHL. He scored one goal and 13 points and racked up 159 penalty minutes in 63 regular-season games. He also added a goal during the WHL playoffs.
