Strachan was sent to Iowa of the AHL, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He'll get some extra ice time in the AHL during the All-Star break and could be called back up to the NHL shortly after.
Strachan has been recalled by the Wild, Michael Russo of the Star-Tribune reports. Strachan was summoned to the parent club as the result of Ryan Carter (hand) going on injured reserve Tuesday. Strachan is a 31-year-old journeyman who has played for five different NHL clubs, including the Wild. He won't help you out in the points department, but Strachan is not afraid to draw penalties based on 199 PIM in 186 games.
Strachan was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Friday. The 31-year old journeyman was scoreless in the two games he played for Minnesota during his recall, but will make his way down to the minors to make room for recently recalled Mike Reilly. Strachan may receive another recall before the end of the season, but with one goal and 20 points in 186 career games, he isn't a viable fantasy option.
Strachan has been recalled from the minors, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. What a nice way to start the New Year for Strachan, who has appeared in 31 games with AHL Iowa this season. He's known as a physical blueliner, but that hasn't translated to much offense in his professional career. Strachan has just 20 points in 184 NHL games between the Blues, Panthers, Capitals and Sabres. He has yet to make his debut with the Wild.
The Wild assigned Strachan to AHL Iowa on Thursday. Strachan did not appear in a game for the Wild after being recalled Dec. 9. He will be among the top options next time the team needs to bring up a defenseman from the minors.
