ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild placed forward Guillaume Latendresse on injured reserve Wednesday with a lower-body injury.

The 23-year-old was off to a good start, posting three goals and six points in eight games this season. After coming over from Montreal early last year, the Quebec native struck for 25 goals and 37 points in 55 contests.

To fill the roster spot, the Wild recalled forward Matt Kassian from Houston of the American Hockey League.
