Wild recall Zucker; Coyle out 3-4 weeks
The Minnesota Wild recalled forward Jason Zucker after announcing that Charlie Coyle is expected to miss 3-4 weeks due to a knee sprain.

The Minnesota Wild announced Sunday night they've recalled forward Jason Zucker from the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League. Minnesota also announced that center Charlie Coyle is expected to miss 3-4 weeks due to a knee sprain suffered during Saturday night's 4-3 overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Zucker had four goals and one assist in 20 regular-season games with the Wild last season and two points (one goal, one assist) in five Stanley Cup Playoff games. The 21-year-old was selected by Minnesota in the second-round (No. 59) of the 2010 NHL Draft.

Coyle had eight goals and six assists in 39 regular-season games in 2012-13. He had two assists in five games in Minnesota's first-round loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
