The Wild have recalled defenseman Marco Scandella from the Houston Aeros. According the the Wild:â†µ
Scandella, 20 (2/23/90), recorded eight points (1-7=8) and 11 penalty minutes (PIM) in 14 games with the Aeros this season. He ranked tied for second on the team in scoring and third in shots with 33. Scandella collected 31 points (9-22=31) in 31 games with the Val-dâ€™Or Foreurs in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) last season. He also appeared in seven matches with Houston and notched one assist. The 6-foot-3, 217-pound native of Montreal, Quebec has not appeared in a NHL game. He will wear sweater No. 6 with Minnesota.â†µ
Do the Wild put in a d-man who has never played an NHL game, and has not practiced with the team? It all depends on just how bad you feel the d-men played last night.
