Schroeder has come down with an illness and likely will not play Wednesday night against the Canucks, per Wild head coach Mike Yeo. As a result of Schroeder's probable absence from Wednesday's contest, the Wild have reportedly recalled Christoph Bertschy from AHL Iowa. Assuming Schroeder does miss out Wednesday, his next chance to lace up for a game will be Friday against the Jets.
Schroeder will stay with the Wild after injuries to Tyler Graovac and Justin Fontaine and have a prominent role on the Wild's third line, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. When given a shot for regular ice time with the Wild last season in February he provided a spark with seven points in ten games. He has some potential as a fill-in option in deeper leagues as a result.
The Wild have made Schroeder an emergency call-up ahead of Saturday night's contest with the Blues. Minnesota is literally hurting at the forward spot, with winger Justin Fontaine week-to-week with an undisclosed injury he sustained Friday against Chicago, and center Tyler Graovac reportedly not close to returning due to a groin ailment. Schroeder is a nice option to fill in, however, as he is a speedy skater with great hands and a cannon for a shot. In eight games with AHL Iowa prior to Saturday's promotion, he contributed two goals and three assists, giving a preview of his offensive potential.
Wild center Jordan Schroeder will be active for Saturday's game against the Blues, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Schroeder, who was called up on an emergency basis Friday, will skate in place of Tyler Graovac (lower body) on Saturday night. He figures to work on the Wild's third line after lining up there during the team's morning skate.
Schroeder was recalled by the Red Wings on an emergency basis Friday, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. Schroeder was likely recalled so that the Wild have a replacement at hand if Nino Niederreiter is unable to play Saturday against St. Louis. However, Niederreiter practiced Friday, and will likely be good to go Saturday against the Blues.
