Mikko Koivu to return Thursday against Calgary

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild news, Wild practice Updated: March 21, 2012 - 10:59 AM

Barring an issue that crops up in today's practice, Wild captain Mikko Koivu will return Thursday night against the Calgary Flames, General Manager Chuck Fletcher just confirmed to me.

Koivu has missed 15 consecutive games and 23 of the past 27 with a shoulder injury.

Also, if you didn't check out today's article on Devin Setoguchi, here it is. In a bizarre story, Setoguchi was struck by a car and injured last July while INSIDE his San Jose chiropractor's office.

 

 

The Wild is practicing now. Further update later.
