Goaltender Devan Dubnyk will not be hampered by an ailing right knee when the Vezina Trophy finalist and the Minnesota Wild host the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

"He’s good to go, no problems," Wild coach Mike Yeo told KFAN 1003 radio in Minnesota on Tuesday morning.

Dubnyk admitted he was nursing the injury after coming on in relief of Darcy Kuemper in Sunday’s 5-4 setback to the Winnipeg Jets. Dubnyk has been told that he can not worsen the injury by playing, according to the team.

Signed to a six-year, $26 million contract in the summer, Dubnyk has posted a 5-2-0 mark with one shutout and a 2.27 goals-against average this season. The 29-year-old Saskatchewan native secured a 27-9-2 mark with five shutouts, a 1.78 goals-against average and .936 save percentage in 39 games with the Wild in 2014-15.
