The Minnesota Wild have sent Nick Palmieri to the minors.

Palmieri has struggled since being dealt to the Wild from New Jersey at the trade deadline as he had no points in nine games. "It’s a tough situation for young guys, so he has the ability to go down there and play on a good team and get quality minutes," coach Mike Yeo said. "Certainly there’s some things in his game that he can improve, but we see the potential that he has. This is similar with what we did with Marco [Scandella] earlier in the year. I don’t think his game is necessarily as high as it can be right now, but some of that is also being in a tough situation. So for him to go down there and get confidence and play his game and not have to worry about anything except being a hockey player, I think it can be beneficial. He’s a big body who skates and can shoot the puck, but there’s a lot of the little things that have to be improved. He will have a chance to make the team out of training camp next season.

"We wanted to spend some time with Nick," coach Pete DeBoer said. "He played well down there. It's a reward for doing some good things and an opportunity for us. This guy's going to be a big part of our future. It's an opportunity for our coaching staff to spend a little bit of time with him in the video room at the end of practice whether he plays or not. He's a part of us going forward and we hadn't seen him in a while. He deserves to be up here." Palmieri has appeared in 26 games with New Jersey this campaign and has contributed seven points.
