Earlier today, the Minnesota Wild recalled forward Jason Zucker from the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Iowa, and the winger will be in the lineup tonight against the Ottawa Senators.

Zucker replaces Torrey Mitchell, who suffered a lower-body injury in the third period of yesterday's contest with the Montreal Canadiens. He'll skate on the second line with Mikael Granlund and Jason Pominville. Nino Niederreiter moves to a line with Kyle Brodziak and Matt Cooke. Justin Fontaine will move to the fourth line with Zenon Konopka and Dany Heatley.

After getting pulled for the first time this season, Josh Harding will have a chance to redeem himself in net. The goaltender will get his first-career start against Ottawa tonight.

Rookie defenseman Matt Dumba will also be in for Nate Prosser.

Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo spoke addressed the media and his scrum on WildTV. Get the official game preview, here.
