Wild place right wing Devin Setoguchi on injured reserve; Jeff Taffe recalled

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have placed right wing Devin Setoguchi on injured reserve and recalled left wing Jeff Taffe (tayf) from their minor league affiliate.

The move was made before Thursday's game at Los Angeles.

Setoguchi left in the first period of Tuesday's game at San Jose with what the NHL-leading Wild called a lower-body injury. He's tied for the team lead with eight goals. Right wing Cal Clutterbuck is also hurt.

The 30-year-old Taffe is third on the Houston Aeros with 17 points, including five goals, in 23 games. The product of Hastings, Minn., and the University of Minnesota was a first-round draft pick by St. Louis in 2000. He signed with the Wild organization this summer.
