Well, things are going to look a little bit different for the Anaheim Ducks in tonight’s face off against the Minnesota Wild.

Forward Adam Henrique was placed on waivers by the club this morning, and though clearing waivers doesn’t necessitate that a player be re-assigned, he’s still likely to be a healthy scratch tonight. Hampus Lindholm was injured in Thursday’s 3-1 loss to the Wild and will not play tonight. Slotting into the D-corps will be Josh Mahura, who is making his season debut. The 22-year-old has 28 games of NHL experience, notching two goals and seven assists.

As for the Wild, they’re getting closer to full strength, with several players coming off the league’s COVID-19 protocols on Friday. While they aren’t rushing too many players back to the ice, Jonas Brodin will return to his spot next to Matt Dumba on the blue line.

Here’s everything you need to know to tune in:
