Cody Almond is flying in from Houston this morning to join the Wild after wingers Cal Clutterbuck and Darroll Powe both went down with leg injuries in last night's victory at Edmonton.

Almond, a 22-year-old forward, has two goals in ten games with the Aeros after the starting the season on the injured list. He was the team's fifth round draft choice in 2007.

We'll get updates on the injuries to Clutterbuck and Powe at the Wild's 2 p.m. practice today.

The Wild plays host to New Jersey on Friday night.
