Wild reassign Blum, Schroeder to Iowa
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Fresh off two straight wins, the Minnesota Wild are getting back to full-strength.
Minnesota reassigned defenseman Jonathon Blum and forward Jordan Schroeder to Iowa of the American Hockey League on Sunday with two games left before the All-Star break.
Forward Mikael Granlund was skating with the team on Sunday after missing 10 games with a fractured left wrist, and All-Star defenseman Ryan Suter is eligible to play Monday at home against the Columbus Blue Jackets after serving a two-game suspension.
Defenseman Marco Scandella returned to the lineup in Saturday night’s 3-1 win against Arizona after missing five games with an upper-body injury.
Blum, 25, has one assist in four games with Minnesota this season. He leads all Iowa defensemen with 16 points (four goals, 12 assists) in 29 games. Schroeder, 24, had nine shots in three games with Minnesota. In 28 games with the Iowa Wild, the former University of Minnesota forward has a team-leading 0.86 points per game this season, scoring 10 goals and tallying 14 assists.
