Niklas Backstrom will be a healthy scratch during Tuesday night's tilt with the Red Wings as the Wild activate Darcy Kuemper from the injury reserve.
It's been a poor season for veteran netminder from Helsinki, Finland. He owns a 5-7-3 record, with a 3.05 GAA and a .887 save percentage. Until he proves he can play better, he's probably not worth considering even as a spot-starter this season. Jan 20 - 7:22 PM
