Fredheim signed, called up

Well, all you folks (like me) who expected the Wild to call up Cuma or Bagnall to replace yet another concussed defenseman in Marek Zidlicky would be wrong.

Instead of taking the obvious route, they decided to do what they should have done in the offseason and sign Kris Fredheim to a 2-way NHL contract. And then they immediately called him up, and he is likely to make his NHL debut tomorrow night in Minnesota.

It's an interesting choice by the Wild, but it was nice to see a tweet from his d-partner, Cuma, sincerely congratulating him. No doubt the decision stings a little for Cuma.

It's in the comments as well, but Wellman was returned to Houston, so the Wild still have Prosser, Peters, and now Fredheim.

Any update on Sal?

Jon DiSalvatore is day to day with a lower body injury.
I would say, though, that he is 75/25 to play at least two games this weekend.

The Aeros need him, though, no question about that. But if he needs a maintenance weekend to keep this from getting worse, I am all for that.

I could use a mantenance month right now... doubt the company would go for that.
