Kurtis Gabriel has been called up from the minors.

He joined the Wild as part of the "Black Aces" squad, but he took some line rushes with the main group on the fourth line at the morning skate. He appears to be a possibility to play in Game 3 on Monday night.

Kurtis Gabriel and Niklas Backstrom will each be seated in the stands for Saturday's match with Dallas.

Since turning pro in the 2013-14 season, the now 22-year-old Gabriel has compiled 195 PIMs in 93 games with AHL Iowa and Minnesota. That's mighty impressive. Though it's worth noting that he's seen just three games and 10 minutes in the sin bin up in the NHL.

The Minnesota Wild have recalled Kurtis Gabriel from the AHL.

He was drafted by Minnesota in the third round of the 2013 Entry Draft. The 23-year-old has no points in three AHL games this season. Gabriel did have 125 penalty minutes in 67 games with the Iowa Wild last season. His fantasy impact will be minimal at most.

Kurtis Gabriel has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Minnesota.

"We're very happy with Kurtis' progress this year and look forward to him developing within our organization," said assistant GM Brent Flahr. "He's a hard-working kid that brings an intriguing package of size, physical competitiveness and character." He has produced 42 points and 86 penalty minutes in 54 games with the Owen Sound Attack. Gabriel was chosen in the third round of the 2013 draft by the Wild.

The Minnesota Wild are still deciding whether or not they want to sign Kurtis Gabriel before the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

Signing Gabriel would allow him to play for the AHL Iowa Wild. However, they might opt to let Gabriel play in one more season with the OHL Owen Sound Attack. He could be the team captain and get plenty of ice time in the OHL, but in the AHL, he might be restricted to third or fourth line duties. He had 28 points and 100 penalty minutes in 67 OHL games last season. He was taken in the third round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
