Peters Back To St. Paul, Almond Back To Houston

One of the reasons that Warren Peters was scratched from the game yesterday was that he wasn't actually available to play yesterday in that it's my understanding he was already in St. Paul. That said, it's now official, Peters returned to Houston to play in Oklahoma City, and is now back to the Wild. In return, the Wild have returned Cody Almond to the Aeros.

However, it's my understanding that one of the reasons Peters went to the Wild last week was because Almond was injured. So who knows?

I don't think they send guys down until they're cleared to play again, so Almond is likely ready to go. From what I gather, Wild coach Todd Richards loved Peters' game this weekend in Anaheim and preferred him to Almond.

Will be interesting to see what happens with the Aeros top line. Will Almond get his spot back or will Wellman keep it and Almond land on the 2nd line?

One of Warren Peter's unique skills is winning face-offs, much more valued in the NHL than AHL.

IMHO Casey Wellman has made the top line better, offensively, (including face-off wins).....and Cody Almond will make the second line better than it has been. This would serve to increase the intensity and grind-out time in the offensive zone...Almond has also shown tenacity on PK's with a few short-handed goals.

Go Aeros!
