Wild Call Up Prospect Tyler Cuma

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild have recalled defenseman Tyler Cuma from their minor league affiliate for the final days of the regular season.

They made the move on Wednesday under emergency conditions. The Wild have a long list of injured players, with two more games left. They host Chicago on Thursday and Phoenix on Saturday.

If he plays, Cuma will become the latest first-round draft pick to make his debut with the Wild. The 22-year-old Cuma was taken by the Wild with the 23rd overall pick in 2008.

The Toronto native has nine assists in 68 games for the Houston Aeros in the AHL this season.
