- General Manager Doug Risebrough said the team does not plan on calling anyone up today.
- With only 21 active players on the trip, if Brunette is not able to extend his NHL leading 497 consecutive games played streak tomorrow and the Wild does not recall anyone from Houston, the team would dress seven defensemen.
- EDIT (1/19 5:10 pm) Former Gopher Danny Irmen has been recalled from Houston Aeros to replace injured Andrew Brunette. Irmen has 4 goals this yr.
- Kurtis Foster is also on his first road trip of the season, but he will not play Monday
