Thigh contusion sidelines Wild's Clutterbuck

The Minnesota Wild will be without forward Cal Clutterbuck for at least one game when they play at the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

Clutterbuck was injured in a collision with Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall in the third period of Thursday's game and suffered what coach Mike Yeo called a thigh contusion. Hall was assessed a major penalty for kneeing and a game misconduct, and has a disciplinary hearing scheduled for Friday with the NHL Player Safety Department.

The Wild also recalled forward Charlie Coyle from Houston of the American Hockey League and will have him available for Saturday's game. Coyle had no points and six shots on goal in five games with the Wild earlier this season.

Minnesota also announced forward Johan Larsson had been sent to the AHL.

Quote of the Day

It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy.  Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
