The Wild recalled Veilleux from AHL Iowa on Wednesday.The promotion comes as a corresponding move after Brett Sutter's reassignment to the AHL left the club with just 11 forwards. The next game will be the 500th of Veilleux's NHL career, but his production has never really been worth any sort of fantasy consideration in the large majority of formats. The 33-year-old has yet to get on the scoresheet in five games this season, and has just 14 points total since the 2008-09 season.
