Wild Reassigns Veilleux

The Wild reassigned forward Stephane Veilleux to the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Veilleux was recalled by Minnesota on April 22 and did not appear in last night’s 2-1 win over Los Angeles. The 31-year-old has notched eight points (3-5=8) and 45 penalty minutes (PIM) in 33 games with the Aeros this season.

Houston opens the Calder Cup Playoffs as the no. 6 seed in the Western Conference and will meet the Grand Rapids Griffins in the first round. The Aeros will host Game 1 on Friday at 7:05 p.m. and Game 2 on Sunday at 5:05 p.m. in the best-of-five series.
