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

Kunin has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury but is expected to replace Gerald Mayhew in the lineup on Tuesday. It's unclear how the Wild's lines will shake out with this change but Kunin re-enters the lineup with 11 points (4G / 7A) in his last 19 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.

The Wild have recalled Luke Kunin from Iowa (AHL).

Kunin has split his 2018-19 campaign between the AHL and NHL. The 2016 first-round pick (No.15 overall) has five points (1G / 4A) in 21 games with Minnesota and 16 points (9G / 7A) in 25 games with Iowa. Kunin will likely draw onto the third line on Tuesday with Pontus Aberg injured.

Kunin will undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL; will be sidelined for 6-8 months.

Kunin tore his ACL in Sunday’s game against the Red Wings and his season is over. This is a tough break for the former first-round pick (No.15 overall in 2016) who appeared to have earned a role with the Wild down the stretch after picking up 19 points (10G / 9A) in 36 games with Iowa (AHL).
