Just eight days after being recalled from the Iowa Wild, defenseman Mike Reilly is headed back in favor of teammate Gustav Olofsson.

The Wild recalled Olofsson on Wednesday, while sending Reilly back to the AHL after four games.

A second-round pick of the Wild in 2013, Olofsson has played in just three NHL games since joining Minnesota, including a one-game stint earlier this season.

Olofsson has five goals and 16 assists in 45 games with Iowa this season.
