With Niklas Backstrom's status up in the air, the Minnesota Wild has recalled goalie Darcy Kuempter from the Houston Aeros.

The team has not yet provided a detailed update on Backstrom, who suffered a lower-body injury during warm-ups prior to Tuesday night's Game 1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Josh Harding took over goaltending duties on short notice and stopped 35 of 37 shots on goal in his first start in more than three months.
