Due to the recent injury of Mikko Koivu, the Wild are calling up Jarod Palmer who will see his first action in a Wild sweater against the New York Islanders. The 6-foot, 200 pound Fridley, Minnesota native has notched 10 points with 4 goals and 6 assists in 26 games with Houston.
Hopefully this is only temporary as the Wild's top forwards are a depleted bunch. Let's hope the kids step up in the meantime so the guys can get healthy and come back to a 1st place team.
