  • Wild's Jesper Wallstedt: Sent back to AHL

    Wallstedt was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Sunday.

    With the Wild off through the All-Star break, Wallstedt will head back to the minors. The 21-year-old netminder struggled in his one NHL start this season, allowing seven goals on 34 shots in a loss to Dallas on Jan. 10. With Marc-Andre Fleury (upper body) likely to return following the break, Wallstedt will likely remain in Iowa as injury insurance going forward.

  • Wild's Jesper Wallstedt: Recalled by Minnesota

    Wallstedt was summoned from AHL Iowa on Saturday, per Michael Russo of The Athletic.

    Marc-Andre Fleury suffered an upper-body injury versus Florida on Friday, so Wallstedt could back up Filip Gustavsson on Sunday against Carolina. Wallstedt made his NHL debut Jan. 10, and it was a tough one, as he gave up seven goals on 34 shots in a loss to the Stars. He is a highly-regarded prospect and is worth claiming in dynasty leagues.

  • Wild's Jesper Wallstedt: Returned to AHL affilate

    Wallstedt was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Saturday.

    Wallstedt made his NHL debut Wednesday, and it was a tough one, as he gave up seven goals on 34 shots in a 7-2 loss in Dallas. Nevertheless, Wallstedt is regarded as the Wild's goaltender of the future after the team selected him 20th overall in the 2021 NHL Draft. Wallstedt has an 11-9-0 record with a 2.54 GAA and a .917 save percentage in 20 AHL games this season.

  • Wild's Jesper Wallstedt: Gets rude welcome from Stars

    Wallstedt made 27 saves in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to Dallas.

    Promoted from AHL Iowa earlier in the week, Wallstedt made his NHL debut and held his own for a couple periods before the Stars blew the doors off in the third. The 21-year-old is still viewed as the goalie of the future for the Wild after being selected 20th overall in the 2021 Draft, but he may not be quite ready for the top level. Marc-Andre Fleury should continue to see the bulk of the work in net while Filip Gustavsson (lower body) is sidelined.

  • Wild's Jesper Wallstedt: Debuting against Dallas

    Wallstedt will make his NHL debut versus the Stars on the road Wednesday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Wallstedt is 11-9-0 with a .917 save percentage and a 2.54 GAA in 20 games for AHL Iowa this season. Selected by the Wild with the 20th overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft, the 21-year-old Swede will finally get his first taste of NHL action after two years in the minors. With a back-to-back against the Flyers and Coyotes on Friday and Saturday, respectively, Wallstedt will likely split those games with starter Marc-Andre Fleury.

    Wallstedt was promoted from AHL Iowa on Sunday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Wallstedt was recalled from AHL Iowa on Monday.

    Wallstedt will serve as the emergency third goalie as the Wild head over to Sweden for matchups with Ottawa and Toronto on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
