With a few days off until their next matchup, the Minnesota Wild have assigned Christoph Bertschy and Jordan Schroeder to the Iowa Wild (AHL) on Monday. The Wild will not play until Thursday, when they embark on a three game road trip that will take them through the Eastern Conference. In their announcement they note that both could return for the Thursday night game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Bertschy has one point in three games with the NHL club this season after making his debut last year. The former sixth-round pick is a Swiss-born winger who scored 35 points in the AHL last season.
Schroeder brings a much higher pedigree, as he was selected 22nd overall in 2009, though he has found little NHL success in his career. In 109 games, the 26-year old has 27 points but has shown an ability to score at the lower levels. The 5’9″ centerman was signed after the Vancouver Canucks decided not to extend a qualifying offer in 2014.
