NHL Cap Hit: $79,575,812 Puckpedia Profile

The Wild have recalled Brennan Menell from Iowa (AHL).

Menell, 22, was an undrafted free agent, who is in his third year with Iowa. The 22-year-old defenseman has two goals and 17 assists to lead all Iowa D-men with 19 points in 23 games this season. He is now the seventh defenseman with Jared Spurgeon out and will likely make his NHL debut in the near future.

Kahkonen will start Tuesday in Florida.

Kahkonen stopped 32 of 34 shots in the Wild's win in New Jersey in his NHL debut last Tuesday. The 23-year-old was 7-2-1 with a 2.47 GAA and .909 SV% when he was called-up, so he should continue to be a decent option while Devan Dubnyk is out. With that said, the Panthers have won four of their last five home games while scoring 3.80 goals per game, so it's not a great matchup for career start No.2.

Stalock led the Wild onto the ice for warmups.

Stalock allowed two goals on 35 shots in the Wild's win over the Senators on Friday. The win snapped a two-game losing skid for Stalock, who will likely make his 13th start of the season on Sunday. In his first start against the Stars, Stalock allowed five goals on 36 shots in a 6-3 loss in late-October.

Stalock will start in New York on Monday.

Stalock surrendered five goals on 39 shots in the Wild's overtime loss in Boston on Saturday. With Devan Dubnyk still away from the team, Stalock will make his fourth straight start on Monday. He is 3-0-1 despite posting a 3.20 GAA and .900 SV% in November and gets set to face a Rangers team that has lost three of their last five but have averaged 3.40 goals per game over that stretch.

Dubnyk (personal) is questionable to dress on Thursday.

Dubnyk missed Wednesday's practice to deal with a "family issue" and is questionable for Thursday's game. Alex Stalock is coming off of a win in Buffalo on Tuesday, so they won't hesitate to let Dubnyk have the night off with Stalock starting and Kaapo Kahkonen backing him up.

Stalock will start Tuesday in Buffalo.

Stalock was yanked after giving up four goals on 12 shots in the Wild's 6-5 loss in San Jose on November 7th. Devan Dubnyk has started the last four games so they'll get Stalock in there in Buffalo. He has gone 2-3-0 with a 3.57 GAA and .881 SV% on the road this season which makes him a risky option, even against a Buffalo team that has lost seven of their last eight (1-5-2).

Dubnyk confirmed starter vs. Carolina.

Dubnyk stopped 27 of 29 shots in the Wild's win over the Coyotes on Thursday. Dubnyk has played splendidly as of late, going 2-2-0 with a 2.49 GAA and .923 SV% in his last four starts. With Dubnyk starting to settle in, the Wild will hand him his fourth straight start on Saturday. He is 3-1-1 with a 3.53 GAA and. 886 SV% in five starts at the Xcel Energy Center this season.
