    News

    Eriksson Ek was promoted from AHL Iowa on Wednesday.

    Impact

    Eriksson Ek has probably worn through at least one set of tires travelling back and forth between clubs. Whether the youngster actually cracks the lineup versus the Ducks on Friday remains to be seen, but at a minimum, he will provide some emergency forward depth during the rest of the team's California trip.

    News

    Eriksson Ek was reassigned to the minors Tuesday.

    Impact

    Eriksson Ek became the odd man out at center after Charlie Coyle (leg) returned to the Wild lineup. In order to earn his way back up to Minnesota, the youngster will likely need to move over to the wing as the four current players down the middle seem firmly entrenched in their roles. Additionally, the Swede's 12-game point drought likely factored into the decision to demote him.
