The Minnesota Wild made a bunch of roster moves Monday, calling up two players from Iowa, moving one of their best defenders to injured reserve, and placing one of their promising young players on waivers.
Graovac, has six goals in 45 games this season – two of them came against Edmonton on Jan. 31. The move means any NHL team could make a claim on the 6-foot-5 center.
While Graovac cleared waivers earlier this year, there's more of a danger that he could be claimed now. The Hockey Writers listed six teams they think should claim him.
- Arizona Coyotes
- Carolina Hurricanes
- Colorado Avalanche
- St. Louis Blues
- Toronto Maple Leafs
- Vancouver Canucks
With the shakeup the Wild add Mitchell, 24, who has skated in 10 games with the team this year. He has 14 points (8 goals, 6 assists) in 39 games with Iowa this season and tallied 42 points (22 goals, 20 assists) in 70 games in Iowa last year.
Tuch, 20, has played three games with the Wild this year. He has 25 points in 36 games at Iowa including nine points (5 goals, 4 assists) over the last six games.
