Backstrom injured, Hackett recalled as backup goalie

  • Updated: December 4, 2011 - 9:13 AM

ANAHEIM, CALIF. - Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom strained his groin during the first period of Friday's 4-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils and will not be in uniform Sunday night against the Anaheim Ducks.

The Wild recalled Matt Hackett from Houston to back up Josh Harding. Backstrom did travel, however, and is day to day.

"I don't think it's too serious. [He'll miss] a few days," coach Mike Yeo said.

Wild forward Cal Clutterbuck, who missed Friday's game because of a leg injury, will decide during Sunday's morning skate if he can play against the Ducks, while defenseman Justin Falk was placed on injured reserve with an "upper body injury" and did not make the road trip.

Defenseman Nate Prosser was recalled, and center David McIntyre was reassigned.
