Schultz practicing today

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild practice Updated: January 23, 2011 - 1:37 PM

Defenseman Nick Schultz is skating today in San Jose and flying with the team to Chicago. They get in early this evening.

As of now, the Wild brass says it doesn't know if it needs to call up a player for Tuesday's game, meaning they're hoping Schultz is OK. If he doesn't feel right tonight or tomorrow, they'll have to make a callup.

Kent's en route to Chicago to cover Monday's practice and Tuesday's game.
