Ballard, Mitchell Activated; Kuemper, Zucker Reassigned
Before the Wild takes on the Phoenix Coyotes at 7 p.m. tonight at Xcel Energy Center, the team makes a couple of roster moves.
Minnesota has activated forward Torrey Mitchell and defenseman Keith Ballard from Injured Reserve. Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo confirmed that Ballard would be in tonight, but the move indicates Mitchell is likely to return tonight.
With the pair rejoining the roster, Minnesota reassigns goaltender Darcy Kuemper and forward Jason Zucker to Iowa of the American Hockey League. Zucker has registered 11 shots in four games with Minnesota. Kuemper didn't see any action in his most recent call-up.
