SAINT PAUL/MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.
- Minnesota Wild President and General Manager Doug Risebrough today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has activated center Mikko Koivu
from injured reserve and that center Dominic Moore has been claimed off waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Koivu, 24 (3/12/83), has missed the last 24 games since suffering a broken bone in his leg on Nov. 16 in Vancouver. Koivu notched 16 points (5-11=16) and was a plus-5 in 19 games before suffering the injury. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound native of Turku, Finland, has 91 points (31-60=91) in 165 career NHL games - all with Minnesota.
