Much to the surprise of frequent poster, ICEVET, the Wild recalled goalie Darcy Kuemper, who may make his NHL debut tonight at Vancouver.
Also, as Heather mentioned in the comments below, Marco Scandella has been re-assigned, and he will take the ice tonight for the Aeros against the Texas Stars.
Kuemper will get the call as Josh Harding deals with a few MS-related health issues. He's been feeling kind of fuzzy, and will take a break to let Kuemper man the pipes against the Wild's biggest pain the ass, the Vancouver Canucks.
From as Aeros focus, wow ... what a game this will be for Matt Hackett?! First, you lose your No. 1 AHL job to Kuemper, and now you have to start on the night that you teammates gets rewarded with an NHL callup.
Let's hope we get to see the Hackett that gets pissed, bears down and plays like we have seen him play in the past. He used to be very good at responding to adversity. Tonight very well could be the toughest hockey issue he's had to deal with since wearing an Aeros sweater.
If the defense plays well in front of him, I expect a solid game from No. 31.
With Lehtonen down, Tim Thomas time in Texas
