Jacob Dowell can't be blamed if he appears distracted during Minnesota's training camp.

His father and brother are both in the final stages of Huntington's disease, which is a neurological disorder that debilitates a person physically and cognitively until they die. It usually lasts over the course of a decade or more. There's a 50-50 chance that Jacob could have inherited the same gene and he plans to have a blood test in a year or two to determine what comes next. Dowell, who has a one-way contract this year, has a good chance to stick with the Wild out of training camp. Hopefully, he can continue to play. We wish him and his family the best.

The Minnesota Wild have recalled Jacob Dowell from the minors.

The deal is reportedly for two years. Dowell had seven points, 80 hits and 53 penalty minutes in 52 games with the Dallas Stars last season. He will add depth to Minnesota's bottom-six forward group, but shouldn't have much, if any, fantasy value next year.
