Rask (undisclosed) has yet to resume skating since getting hurt Feb. 12 versus the Flyers, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Rask is reportedly improving and did go see the doctor Monday, but the fact that he has been unable to skate doesn't bode well for him being ready to play against the Ducks on Tuesday. In the meantime, the potential return of Pontus Aberg (lower body) should allow the Wild to utilize 12 forwards until Rask is cleared to play, instead of slotting defenseman Brad Hunt into the fourth line.
Rask (undisclosed) won't suit up for Sunday's game versus St. Louis, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Rask will sit out for his second straight game. He was still looking to ignite his offense his new squad, as Rask has just two points in 10 games with the Wild. Kyle Rau will continue working on the fourth line in his place.
Rask has been labeled day-to-day with a lower-body injury and won't play Friday against the Devils, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Rask had seen limited ice time in the two games prior to his exit, playing fewer than eight minutes in each. Still, his absence Friday degrades the Wild's depth up front and should result in Kyle Rau drawing in.
Rask left Tuesday's loss to the Flyers with an undisclosed injury and didn't return, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The injuries keep pouring down on the Wild, as both Rask and Matt Hendricks left in the second period and couldn't make it back. Coach Bruce Boudreau said they'll be evaluated Wednesday. If either of the two have to miss games, expect the team to recall a player from AHL Iowa.
Rask will suit up as the fourth line left wing in Tuesday's home game against Philadelphia, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Head coach Bruce Boudreau said Tuesday that he wants to get Rask more minutes going forward and get the 25-year-old going offensively per Russo. Since coming over from Carolina, Rask has mustered just two points in nine games for Minnesota. Look for Boudreau to get the Swede going by playing him in big situations, especially on the power play in the near future.
