The Wild have been on a skid lately losing 9 of their last 10 games. Injuries have been one of the biggest reasons for the poor play but the team is finally starting to get healthy. Devin Setoguchi has missed the past 12 games due to a knee injury and could return to the lineup as early as Wednesday against Vancouver. He has been practicing and says there is “definitely a good chance” he could play Wednesday. Coach Yeo said they want to avoid bringing him back to early and make sure he’s ready before they allow him to return to the lineup. Setoguchi has scored 8 goals and 13 points in 28 games this season and the team is in desperate need of his offense on the top line. The Wild have gone 3-6-3 with Setoguchi out of the lineup.

Other Injury Updates: Winger Casey Wellman and Defenseman Clayton Stoner also returned to practice on Monday. Wellman has missed nine games because of a wrist injury and Stoner missed four games because of a groin injury. Guillaume Latendresse is still on injured reserve with concussion symptoms and is out indefinitely.
