Graovac was recalled from AHL Iowa on Thursday.

With the Wild facing a 3-1 deficit in their series with St. Louis, it's unlikely that Graovac's recall will last all that long; the same goes for the 15 other players the Wild have called up for depth. They'll have separate practices from the members of the team who have been on the Minnesota roster from the beginning of the postseason, so Graovac and his fellow call-ups have nearly no chance of seeing any game action for the remainder of the 2016-17 season.
