Wild cut roster, send five to top minor-league team
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild reduced their training camp roster to 28 players Monday, sending five skaters to their top minor league affiliate.
With several veteran additions at the forward positions this summer, the Wild have few, if any, spots to give one of their prospects. Olvecky, Pouliot and Voloshenko, in particular, drew coach Jacques Lemaire's criticism over the weekend for their lackluster performance in camp.
Minnesota has exhibition games Wednesday and Thursday nights, at Detroit and at St. Louis.
