Kunin (upper-body) will return to the Wild lineup on Thursday.

Kunin missed the last two games with an upper-body injury but will replace Joel Eriksson Ek (lower-body) in the lineup tomorrow. Kunin will skate on the second line with Jason Zucker and Ryan Donato and has 14 points (5G / 9A) in 37 games this season.

Dubnyk will start Monday vs. the Sharks.

Dubnyk was pulled after allowing three goals on seven shots in the Wild’s loss in Florida on Friday.

Read will draw into he Wild lineup on Friday.

Read has been a healthy scratch for the last three games but will replace Luke Kunin (upper-body) in the lineup on Friday. Read scored a goal in just 13:14 TOI in Calgary last Saturday after being recalled from Iowa—where he has 15 goals and 16 assists (31 points) in 50 games.

Kunin is questionable for Friday due to an “upper-body” injury.

Kunin left Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury but head coach Bruce Boudreau added that he was “a little woozy,” which suggests that it is a head-related injury. If Kunin can’t play, Joel Eriksson Ek will likely move to the second line and Jordan Greenway will likely shift to centre on the third line.

Dubnyk will start Friday in Florida.

Dubnyk stopped all 25 shots that he faced in the Wild’s shutout win in Tampa Bay last night. It was an outstanding outing for Dubnyk, who is 6-0-1 with a 1.69 GAA, .943 SV% and one shutout in his last seven outings. Even with no rest, he remains a quality option tonight in Florida—the Panthers have lost six in a row (0-2-4) and are on a back-to-back of their own.
