Clutterbuck injured but returns for Wild


Minnesota Wild forward¬†Cal Clutterbuck was injured in the first period of Monday’s game against the Dallas Stars, but he has returned to the game.

Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Clutterbuck crashed into the net after bumping with Stars defenseman Aaron Rome and had to be helped off the ice, unable to put weight on his right leg.

Russo added this tweet later on:

In 24 games this season, Clutterbuck has three goals and five points. He’s also a minus-seven.

The Wild have won five straight games and are going for their sixth consecutive win tonight against the Stars. A win and Minnesota would regain top spot in the Northwest Division.
