Wild winger Cal Clutterbuck missed Saturday's practice while being re-evaluated for what coach Todd Richards called an "upper body'' injury.

"I have no idea if it's serious or not," said Richards, who would not get more specific about the injury. "All I can tell you is he wasn't out there today, and he's getting re-evaluated by a doctor."

Richards didn't say whether it had anything to do with the blow to the head Clutterbuck received from New York Islanders winger Trevor Gillies on Wednesday night, a hit that earned Gillies a 10-game suspension. Clutterbuck played the following night against the New York Rangers. But sometimes concussion symptoms arise well after the event. More will be known Sunday.

"I don't know if I need to be concerned yet," Richards said. "I'll wait until I hear something from the doctor or [Wild athletic trainer Don Fuller]."


• Winger Chuck Kobasew, who missed the two-game road trip because of an illness, was back at practice.

• Defenseman Cam Barker (upper body) also practiced and is available for Sunday.

• Winger Guillaume Laten- dresse returned to practice and looked good, but Richards would not put a timetable on when he'll play.

• Center Mikko Koivu's most recent meeting with a doctor about his broken finger was a positive one, but Richards said Koivu's return is at least a week away.
