Minnesota defenseman Marco Scandella will miss tonight’s game versus the Jets due to a family matter.
It’s hoped Scandella will be able to rejoin the team on its four-game road trip that starts Thursday in Carolina.
Scandella has two goals and three assists and has logged 20:01 per game in 13 contests this season.
More from the Star-Tribune:
It’s a tough loss for the Wild. Scandella has been great lately, and he was the left-shot coach Mike Yeo and assistant coach Andrew Brunette play in the Zach Parise position (right circle, looking for one-timers and rebounds) on the power play.
