The Minnesota Wild have claimed Nate Prosser off waivers, essentially replacing Kyle Quincey on the roster after he cleared. Jordin Tootoo, the third player on waivers yesterday also cleared and has been assigned to Rockford. Today, Nathan Walker (WSH) who we addressed earlier, and Matt Tennyson (BUF) are on the wire.

Prosser returns to familiar stomping grounds, having played for Minnesota for the first eight years of his professional career. After playing 282 games for the Wild over that span, he signed a two-year contract with the Blues this offseason. Only suiting up for one game for the Blues this year, they were right in their assumption that he would be claimed if they exposed him to waivers.
