Wild activate Clutterbuck, make goalie moves

Minnesota Wild forward Cal Clutterbuck was activated off injured reserve Friday, and the club placed goaltender Darcy Kuemper on IR and recalled goalie Matt Hackett from its American Hockey League affiliate in Houston.

Clutterbuck hasn't played since being injured in a Feb. 21 game against the Edmonton Oilers, on a play in which Oilers forward Taylor Hall received a kneeing major and game misconduct and later was suspended for two games.

Clutterbuck has two goals and four points in 16 games this season.

Kuemper, 22, was recalled when Josh Harding had to be placed on IR due to symptoms from multiple sclerosis and made his NHL debut Feb. 12 at the Vancouver Canucks. In four games (three starts), he is 1-2-0 with a 2.22 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.

Hackett, 23, played in 12 games for the Wild last season, going 3-6-0 with a 2.38 GAA and .922 save percentage. In 42 AHL games, he is 19-19-3, with a 2.56 GAA and .910 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
