Wild recall Haula; Rupp leaves for personal reasons

The Minnesota Wild have recalled forward Erik Haula from their American Hockey League affiliate in Iowa, and he is expected to make his debut Friday when Minnesota hosts the Colorado Avalanche.

Haula, 22, is tied for second on Iowa with 10 points (four goals, six assists) in 18 games.

Forward Mike Rupp has been designated as a non-roster player and will leave the team for personal reasons. Michael Russo of the (Minneapolis) Star Tribune reported Rupp had a death in the family and will be away for a few days. Rupp has played in two games for the Wild after missing most of the season with a lower-body injury.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
