Well, i wrote after practice that all signs pointed to Devin Setoguchi's return to the lineup tomorrow in Vancouver.

Now it looks almost certain. The Wild has activated both Setoguchi and Casey Wellman off of injured reserve while sending Matt Kassian back to Houston.

Setoguchi has missed 12 games with a knee injury and Wellman missed nine games with a wrist injury. Setoguchi, who skated on a line with Mikko Koivu and Dany Heatley in practice the past two days, has 13 points in 28 games for the Wild. Wellman has four points in seven games.

It was another up-tempo practice Tuesday, with a whole lot of players on the ice. The Wild had nine defensemen and 13 forwards skating.
