Dumba placed on injured reserve by Wild


The defenseman was injured in the third period of a 5-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche at Xcel Energy Center on Saturday when he was hit by Wild forward Jordan Greenway.


Wild forwards Marcus Johansson, who left in the second period Saturday with an undisclosed injury, and Marcus Foligno, who was placed in the NHL COVID-19 protocol Sunday, will not play Sunday.


Minnesota recalled forwards Luke Johnson, Gerald Mayhew and Kyle Rau from the taxi squad.


"We've got a roster, we've got a hockey club, and when that puck drops, we're going to compete our [butts] off."
