Wild recall defenseman Reilly from AHL

Defenseman Mike Reilly is rejoining the Minnesota Wild

Defenseman Mike Reilly is headed back to Minnesota.

For the second time in just three games, Minnesota Wild defenseman Mike Reilly is on the move.

The Wild recalled Reilly from the AHL on Wednesday, just days after assigning him to Iowa following the season opener Monday.

A 23-year-old defenseman and a former University of Minnesota standout, Reilly registered two shots on goal in an Iowa Wild loss Tuesday, and spent 29 games in the NHL last season, posting seven points.
