Niklas Backstrom remains day-to-day with a strained knee and he will not dress for tonight's Wild game in Buffalo.

As expected, the Wild recalled goalie Darcy Kuemper to serve as Josh Harding's backup. Here's the story via the Pioneer Press.

Recently demoted forward Jason Zucker is going to be suspended for a check to the head on a member of the Oklahoma City Barons. Zucker delivered the blow to Linus Omark during the third period of the Iowa Wild's game Sunday night. Zucker was given a 10-minute match penalty for the hit.
