That meant that one of them likely would be scratched for Thursday night's game against the Vancouver Canucks at Xcel Energy Center.
Turns out it will be Granlund.
The Star Tribune reported the rookie would be the odd man out for at least one night. He hasn't missed a game this season but struggled while playing center on the team's second line.
Granlund and Setoguchi were demoted to fourth-line wingers for Monday night's loss at Phoenix. Granlund, the ninth pick in the 2010 NHL draft, has one goal and two assists in nine games.
The Star Tribune also reported that Setoguchi will be on the fourth line with center Zenon Konopka and the recently acquired Mike Rupp.
