Wild send young winger Colton Gillies to the minors

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Minnesota Wild winger Colton Gillies has been sent to the minors.

Gillies was assigned to Minnesota's AHL affiliate, the Houston Aeros. The move was made Monday, reducing the team's training camp roster to 26 players. The list must be down to at most 23 players by Wednesday, the NHL's deadline for the regular season.

The Wild's opener is at Columbus on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Gillies was Minnesota's first-round draft pick in 2007. He spent last season with the Wild, recording two goals and five assists in 45 games.
