Wild Recalls Veilleux; Reassigns Two

The Minnesota Wild has recalled forward Stephane Veilleux from the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League (AHL) and reassigned forwards Carson McMillan and Jason Zucker to Iowa.

Veilleux skated in two playoff games with Minnesota last season and tallied eight points (3-5=8) and 45 penalty minutes (PIM) in 33 regular season games with Houston (AHL). He added two assists in three playoff games with the Aeros. Veilleux compiled two assists and 15 PIM in 21 matches with Minnesota after being acquired in a trade from New Jersey on Feb. 24, 2012. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound native of St. Georges de Beauce, Que., has compiled 101 points (46-55=101) and 317 PIM in 460 NHL games with Minnesota, Tampa Bay and New Jersey. Veilleux ranks fifth in Wild history in hits (396), eighth in games played (382), 10th in PIM (269) and 11th in shots (558). He was originally selected by Minnesota in the third-round (93rd overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft and wears No. 19 for the Wild.

McMillan was recalled by Minnesota yesterday and did not appear in last night’s game at Nashville.

Zucker was recalled by Minnesota on Sunday and made his season debut with the Wild Tuesday at Nashville skating 13:13 and registered one shot on goal.
