 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -The depleted Minnesota Wild placed forward Pavol Demitra on injured reserve before Monday's game against Edmonton with a strained groin, and forward Marian Gaborik joined him on the scratch list with the same injury.
This has not been a promising start for Minnesota's two Slovakian stars, not because of production but because of health. Demitra missed his fifth game out of 15, and Gaborik was out for the third time.
After getting three goals and two assists in the last two games, Gaborik leads the Wild with 13 points. Demitra is tied for fourth with 10 points.
Center Wes Walz, who has taken an unspecified personal leave from the team, missed his third straight game, too. Demitra, Gaborik and Walz skated on the team's top line in the season opener.
Forward Dominic Moore was taken off injured reserve to replace Demitra on the 23-man active roster.
