ST. PAUL, Minn. The Minnesota Wild lost forward Devin Setoguchi early in Tuesday night's win against San Jose, and on Thursday they lost him to the injured list.
Setoguchi, 24, who suffered what appeared to be a right leg injury, has scored eight goals with five assists in 28 games this season. He came to the Wild in a draft night trade and is one of five Minnesota players who share the team lead in goals.
The Wild have recalled forward Jeff Taffe from Houston of the AHL to fill Setoguchi's roster spot.
Taffe, 30, ranks third on the Aeros with 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) in 23 games, while tying for the team lead with 57 shots. Taffe, who signed with the Wild as a free agent in July and played college hockey at the University of Minnesota, wears No. 19 with the Wild.
