Wild winger Devin Setoguchi is out because of a lower-body injury.
That's the official word from GM Chuck Fletcher.
I'm about to board my flight from San Jose to LA, and I'll update later, but there aren't any new details on Setoguchi's injury.
As I mentioned in a previous blog, he had a soft cast on his right knee after last night's victory over the Sharks and it seems serious, based on the reaction of people around him.
Goalie Josh Harding, who was removed after being injured (probably a neck or head injury) last night when struck by teammate Nick Schultz's elbow, is feeling better but will need to be reevaluated today.
No callups, meaning Colton Gillies enters for Setoguchi and goalie Niklas Backstrom should return when the Wild plays the Kings tomorrow night.
More later, probably later this afternoon after the Wild lands in Los Angeles. It is practicing in San Jose.
