Wild roster shuffle
By Victoria Matiash
With a playoff spot on the line, the Minnesota Wild is reportedly looking to shake up the roster ahead of Saturday's tilt with the Colorado Avalanche. According to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the club is expected to recall forwards Jason Zucker and Stephane Veilleux from the AHL for Saturday's ultra-imperative match. And yes, there's a good chance both will draw into the lineup.
Forwards Jake Dowell and Carson McMillan appear to be the top candidates to head back to the Houston Aeros. The Wild can secure a playoff spot with a win over the Avalanche or a loss by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Otherwise, it gets interesting.
