Setoguchi might be in the doghouse

Devin Setoguchi was a healthy scratch for tonight’s Wild game against the San Jose Sharks. No word yet on why Setoguchi isn’t in the lineup, but the Star Tribune’s Michael Russo speculates that he’s in the “Wild’s doghouse” for something.

Setoguchi: 'I'm feeling good'

The Minnesota Wild hasn't been the same since December 6 -- that's the day forward Devin Setoguchi went down with a knee injury. The Wild had the best record in the NHL at the time, and hope they can climb back towards the top of the standings once Setoguchi returns.

Clutterbuck, Powe doubtful for Friday

The NHL's best team will likely be without two good players Friday night. Cal Clutterbuck and Darrell Powe both suffered charley horses during Wednesday night's win over Edmonton, and are doubtful for Friday night's game against New Jersey.

Koivu's return should help slumping Setoguchi

Nobody wants Mikko Koivu to return to the Wild's lineup more than Devin Setoguchi. Setoguchi has just five points in 12 games since returning from a lower body injury. Koivu's return could boost his production on the top line next to Dany Heatley.

Clutterbuck struggling with undisclosed injury

An undisclosed injury kept forward Cal Clutterbuck out of the Wild's 7-1 loss to Colorado Tuesday, and he missed Wednesday's practice because he still wasn't feeling well. His status for Thursday's game in Phoenix is unknown, but head coach Mike Yeo says Clutterbuck will be monitored "very closely."

Clutterbuck moved to the top line

Cal Clutterbuck scored a short-handed goal in the Wild's 3-1 win over Tampa Bay Monday night. He did so playing on the top line. Head coach Mike Yeo says he's been really impressed with Clutterbuck this season, and he'll be back on the top line Wednesday against Edmonton.

Apologetic Setoguchi rejoins Wild's top line

Devin Setoguchi will be on the ice with the Wild tonight in Chicago. The winger was benched Tuesday night against San Jose for missing a meeting. Setoguchi offered no excuses and apologized to his teammates. He’ll skate on the first line with Mikko Koivu and Dany Heatley.
