The Minnesota Wild would like nothing more than to start its Olympic break on a high note. To do that, the team will have to close things out tonight against the surging Nashville Predators. Although the Preds are in last place in the Central Division, it has a winning record (25-23-9: 59 points) and has earned at least a point in six of its last seven games.

The Minnesota Wild has reassigned forward Stephane Veilleux to the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League (AHL). Goaltender Johan Gustafsson has been recalled.

Veilleux has recorded one goal and 19 penalty minutes (PIM) in 25 games with Minnesota this season. He has collected eight points (3-5=8) in 20 contests with Iowa. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound native of St. Georges de Beauce, Que., has compiled 102 points (47-55=102) and 336 PIM in 485 NHL games with Minnesota, Tampa Bay and New Jersey. The 32-year-old ranks fifth in Wild history in hits (423), eighth in games played (407), ninth in PIM (287) and 11th in shots (580).

Gustafsson is 8-9-2 with a 2.86 goals-against average (GAA), a .908 save percentage (SV%) and one shutout in 21 games with Iowa this season. The 6-foot-2, 199-pound native of Koping, Sweden, went 20-13-0 with a 1.70 GAA, a .929 SV% and four shutouts in 33 games for Lulea HF in Sweden’s Elite League last season. Gustafsson was selected by the Wild in the sixth round (159th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The 21-year-old has not appeared in an NHL game and wears sweater No. 31 with Minnesota.

The Minnesota Wild will play in its final game before the Olympic break tomorrow, hosting the Nashville Predators at Xcel Energy Center.

“I don’t want to take it until after tomorrow’s game,” Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo joked about the break after the team’s practice. Well, he was probably serious, but it got a good laugh from the swarm of media in the scrum.

Though it’s still up in the air, the blue line may be getting a Jared Spurgeon-sized boost tomorrow.

Head Coach Mike Yeo wouldn’t saw whether the defenseman was in or out tomorrow, but did admit there’s a “very good chance you could see him.”
