One of my favorite guys on the Aeros, John Scott, has been recalled by the Minnesota Wild. He should be joining the Wild in Los Angeles in time for tonight's game against the Anaheim Ducks, and according to Michael Russo, it appears that he will be in the lineup for the game.
Kurtis Foster, who got action for the Wild last night, appears to be the odd man out for the Wild and should be the one who will be replaced by Scott. Coach Jacques Lemaire appears to have quite a fondness for Scott and likes that Scott gives a "different dimension" to the team.
I say congratulations to Scott. He's always one of the nicest guys on the team to speak with after a game, and while he's not the most graceful of players, there has been a marked improvement in his skating ability this season when compared to last season -- though I'm still terrified every time he's got his stick on the puck.

UPDATE: You know, now that I'm thinkingabout it, a call came into Kevin Constantine while we were interviewing him last night. I wonder if that was from the Wild about Scott.
