Latendresse returns tonight for the Wild

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild player moves Updated: March 8, 2011 - 6:53 PM

For the first time in 59 games, Guillaume Latendresse is on coach Todd Richards' submitted lineup.

Latendresse will return tonight against the Colorado Avalanche. In order for Latendresse to come off injured reserve, Casey Wellman had to be reassigned.

Latendresse tied for the Wild's goal-scoring lead with 25 last season, only in 27 less games than co-leader Andrew Brunette. Entering tonight, Latendresse has three goals and six points in eight games this season and scored the Wild's -- and NHL's -- first goal of the 2010-11 campaign.

Cam Barker looks like he's in, too. Clayton Stoner has a lower body injury.

Enjoy the game everybody and talk to you after.
