For almost the entire month of October, the Minnesota Wild only called up one player from the Houston Aeros - Colton Gillies. Gillies has returned to Houston, but in the past week, three new Aeros have been recalled. Casey Wellman was called up last Thursday. Matt Kassian
got the call yesterday. Today, it's Cody Almond
who is north bound on a commercial flight.
Almond's callup gives the Wild one extra forward with Antti Miettinen, Guillaume Latendresse
and Pierre-Marc Bouchard
out. He gets the call after posting a goal and four assists in 10 games with Houston, tying him for the team scoring lead.
Almond spent seven games with the Wild at the end of last season, and scored one goal. He will wear #27.
