NASHVILLE – Wild center Erik Haula, who has missed three games because of a lower-body injury, is expected to travel here and participate in the team’s morning skate Tuesday. It’ll be determined afterward if he can return and play Tuesday night when the team faces the Predators.
It still was to be determined late Monday if Zach Parise, who missed the Canadiens and Rangers games because of illness, will travel to Nashville on Tuesday morning.
Forward Jordan Schroeder was recalled from Iowa of the AHL on Monday. Both he and Pat Cannone had been sent to Iowa during the holiday break. Neither played in Iowa’s game Monday.
• Kirill Kaprizov, a 2015 fifth-round draft pick by the Wild, was named Russia’s captain for the world junior championship. He’s the third Wild prospect to be named captain of his country (Luke Kunin, United States, and Joel Eriksson Ek, Sweden).
