Niederreiter questionable vs. Blackhawks

7 Comments

The Minnesota Wild could be without forward Nino Niederreiter tonight when they visit the Chicago Blackhawks.

Niederreiter left Monday night’s 2-0 loss against the Winnipeg Jets late in the third period after taking a Matt Dumba shot off his left foot.

Wild coach Mike Yeo did not have an update on Niederreiter postgame.

Matt Cooke is expected to return to the lineup tonight after missing 30 games recovering from sports hernia surgery and Jordan Schroeder is another option if Niederreiter is unable to go in Chicago.

Niederreiter has 24 goals and 37 points in 78 games this season.
