The Minnesota Wild says right wing Cal Clutterbuck was activated from injured reserve and is back in the lineup Saturday against Nashville.

Clutterbuck missed six games for a lower-body injury after taking a nasty hit from the Oilers' Taylor Hall last month.

Goaltender Darcy Kuemper was placed on injured reserve to make room for rookie goaltender Matt Hackett, who was recalled from AHL Houston, according to a news release.

Hackett briefly starred with the Wild last season, NBC Sports says, making his NHL debut and setting a league record for longest shutout streak to start a career.
