Wild activate C Koivu from injured reserve
January 11, 2008

Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Wild activated center Mikko Koivu from injured reserve before Friday night's game at Chicago.

Koivu missed 24 games after a two-handed slash to the back of his leg by Vancouver defenseman Mattias Ohlund during a game on Nov. 16. Ohlund drew a four-game suspension from the NHL, and Koivu suffered a broken bone in his leg.

The sixth overall pick in the 2001 draft, Koivu was on the verge of a breakthrough season -- his third with the Wild -- before the injury. He had five goals, 11 assists and a plus-five rating in 19 games.

To make room on the roster, the Wild put center Dominic Moore on waivers. Moore, who had one goal and two assists in 30 games, was claimed by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Hurricanes place D Glen Wesley on IR, call up 2 from Albany
January 12, 2008

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -The Carolina Hurricanes placed defenseman Glen Wesley on injured reserve Saturday and recalled defenseman Tim Conboy and forward Brandon Nolan from their AHL affiliate in Albany.

Wesley was placed on the injured list retroactive to Jan. 5 because of illness. Both Nolan and Conboy were expected to play Saturday night against Colorado.

For Nolan, 24-year-old son of New York Islanders coach Ted Nolan, it marks the fourth stint with Carolina this season, third of the month and second this week.

He was called up by the Hurricanes Jan. 3, sent back to Albany Jan. 8, recalled Thursday and sent back to Albany a day later. He had one goal and two assists Friday night before his latest call-up.

Conboy, signed last summer by Carolina as a free agent, has yet to make his NHL debut.
