Russo updated the previous blog. But here is more news
--Jed Ortmeyer was recalled from Houston to take the spot of the ill Chuck Kobasew. He has played two games with the Wild, averaging 7:16 in ice time. He had 10 points and 17 penalty minutes in 24 games with the Houston Aeros.
--Also, the Wild traded the rights to right wing Petr Kalus to Columbus for future considerations.
Kalus, 23, had eight points and 68 penalty minutes in 34 games with Houston this season. The 6-foot-1, 208-pound native of Ostrava, Czech Republic played in two games with the Wild last season. Kalus was Boston's second-round pick (No. 39 overall) in the 2005 Draft and was acquired by the Wild with a fourth-round pick in the July 2007 trade of Manny Fernandez to the Bruins.
