Former Gophers defenseman Reilly recalled by Wild

BY foxsports • January 8, 2016

For the third time in just over a month, defenseman Mike Reilly has been recalled by the Minnesota Wild from Iowa.

The former Gophers standout was also summoned Dec. 2 and Dec. 17, but did not appear in a game with Minnesota.

With Iowa, Reilly has five goals and 18 points in 32 games. He ranks tied for first on the team in power-play goals (3), second in scoring and assists, fourth in shots on goal (65) and his point total ranks fourth amongst AHL rookie defensemen.

To make room on the roster, Tyler Strachan was sent to Iowa.

Minnesota plays at Dallas on Saturday with coverage on FOX Sports North beginning at 6:30 p.m. with Wild Live Pregame.
