Peters, Kampfer sidelined; Almond in

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild news, Wild player moves Updated: April 1, 2012 - 4:54 PM


Center Warren Peters and defenseman Steve Kampfer were injured during last night's shootout win over Los Angeles and didn't make the trip to Chicago.

Peters has a pinched nerve in his neck and after getting examined today by doctors will meet the team in Nashville tomorrow. Kampfer will miss the final four games with a knee injury and is week to week, meaning depending on how long Houston goes in the playoffs will determine if he plays again this season.

Center Cody Almond has been recalled on emergency conditions for Peters and will play tonight at Chicago. The Wild hasn't called anybody up for Kampfer, so Marco Scandella will return after not playing last night with an upper body injury.

Josh Harding vs. Ray Emery. Andrew Brunette is questionable with a lower body injury.
