Minnesota Wild place defenceman Marek Zidlicky on injured reserve

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Wild placed defenceman Marek Zidlicky on injured reserve Wednesday and recalled right-winger Cal Clutterbuck from Houston of the American Hockey League.

Zidlicky was a prize free agent for Minnesota, but he injured his right ankle on Sept. 26. He did not make the road trip to Atlanta with the team on Tuesday.

The move is retroactive to the injury, so he’ll miss at least a week under league rules.

Clutterbuck played in two games for the Wild last year. He had 11 goals and 13 assists for the Aeros.
