Clutterbuck (thigh) optimistic about Saturday return

1 Comment

Cal Clutterbuck was back practicing with the Minnesota Wild today, and the physical forward thinks he could be ready this weekend to play his first game in a couple of weeks.

Clutterbuck suffered a thigh contusion on Feb. 21 in a leg-on-leg collision with Oilers forward Taylor Hall — a play that got Hall suspended two games.

“I’m making progress,” Clutterbuck said today, via the Star Tribune. “I’m feeling pretty good right now. So I can definitely see (playing Saturday) as a possibility for sure. We still have three days. We’ll take it day by day, see how I feel. But I’m pretty confident right now.”

The Wild is in Nashville Saturday and returns home to face Vancouver on Sunday.
