Scandella sent to Houston; McIntyre called up

Posted by: Kent Youngblood under Wild news Updated: January 9, 2012 - 11:23 AM




Mr. Russo has a much-deserved day off. So I have practice today. I'll blog again after practice, but here's some news:

Defenseman Marco Scandella has been sent back to Houston and center David McIntyre has been recalled from the Aeros. 

Scandella had three points, three assists and was a minus-10 in 37 games played this season. This is McIntyre's second time with the Wild. The first time around he appeared in two games, not registering a point.

In other news, Pierre-Marc Bouchard (lower body) is not practicing today.


Have a good day.
