Veilleux called up from Iowa, Zucker sent back

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild news Updated: October 9, 2013 - 10:17 AM

The Wild is bringing Stephane Veilleux up from Iowa today, and sending Jason Zucker back to its American Hockey League team. A third forward, Carson McMillan, was also reassigned to Iowa.

McMillan and Zucker were called up for last night's game.  Zucker struggled a bit in a 3-2 loss at Nashville, and McMillan didn't play.

Veilleux is a 31-year-old feisty veteran who could give the winless team some spark in Thursday's game against Winnipeg.
