ST. PAUL, Minn. Wild forward Pierre-Marc Bouchard, the team's fourth-leading points scorer, will be placed on injured reserve with concussion-like symptoms. General manager Chuck Fletcher said Tuesday that Bouchard, who has a history of concussions, has felt "a little bit of pressure from time to time" since he was hit Dec. 13 by Winnipeg's Zach Bogosian. Bouchard had felt well enough to play until he took an elbow in last a Jan. 4 game against Vancouver and has been out of the lineup since.
