Chris Stewart will not play tonight in St. Paul. The Minnesota Wild forward is out with an upper-body injury. His status is reportedly “day-to-day.”

Stewart could be replaced by Jordan Schroeder, who was skating on a line with Mikko Koivu and Nino Niederreiter this morning, but coach Mike Yeo wouldn’t confirm that.

Schroeder appeared in one playoff game versus the St. Louis Blues, but otherwise has not played this postseason.

The Wild trail their series with the Chicago Blackhawks, 2-0.
