Minnesota had been the lone team without any coaches or players in COVID-19 protocols amid the recent outbreak across the league, although they did have some players impacted earlier in the season.
The team is also dealing with injuries to defenseman and captain Jared Spurgeon and center Joel Eriksson Ek.
The Wild hasn’t played since Dec. 20 and will face the St. Louis Blues on Saturday at Target Field for the Winter Classic.
