Good Monday morning to you. Blogging quickly from my iPhone because I've been informed there will be no Internet on my brand new 737-900 to LA. What is this, 2005???? If that changes in the air, I'll come back in here and make more detailed. I have no update on Mikko Koivu's injury, but he has been placed on injured reserve after taking a shot to the foot Saturday. Erik Haula has been called up. Koivu will have to miss at least a week, but this is obviously concerning news for a team already devastated by injury. The Wild says it will have a further update on Koivu later after he sees the docs this morning. He joins Zach Parise and Jared Spurgeon on injured reserve with foot injuries. Down to six defensemen, Jon Blum has been called up. I don't know for sure yet if that means the Wild will assign Matt Dumba to Portland of the Western Hockey League. GM Chuck Fletcher said yesterday that a decision will likely come today.
