Wild recalls Sifers, places Havlat, Burns on injured reserve; Latendresse to debut

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild game coverage Updated: November 27, 2009 - 12:43 PM

Good Happy Post Thanksgiving. I guess we'll find out any minute which team had more turkey, the Wild or Avs. Usually post-Thanksgiving games are drab.

The Wild placed Marty Havlat and Brent Burns on injured reserve, retroactive to the time of their injuries. This is just formality to get 23 players on the roster because the Wild wanted to recall defenseman Jaime Sifers. Havlat and Burns can come off anytime one week after injury. Obviously Havlat's the closest. He's been skating on his own.

We'll find out after the game whether the Wild will bring either Havlat or Antti Miettinen to Colorado for tomorrow's game.

An excited Guillaume Latendresse will make his Wild debut. Talk to you after the game.
