Wild to recall Scandella, Foucault

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild news, Wild player moves Updated: February 13, 2012 - 12:29 AM

Evening from Chateau de Russo.

The Wild will recall defenseman Marco Scandella and winger Kris Foucault on Monday to infuse some energy into a struggling lineup, sources say.

Scandella, who had six points and was minus-10 in 37 games with the Wild earlier this season, has five points in nine games with Houston. If Foucault, a 2009 fourth-round pick, plays Tuesday against red-hot Anaheim, it'll be his NHL debut. The winger has 10 goals and 23 points in 47 games for Houston.

I'd think this is an indication that Cal Clutterbuck (lower body) is doubtful. He was hurt in the second period Saturday against Columbus.

The Wild took Sunday off. It practices at the X on Monday morning, followed by the Ducks. Talk to you after practice and on Twitter for live updates at twitter.com/russostrib. Good night.
