St. Paul, MN (WQOW) -- The Minnesota Wild recalled three players from their Houston AHL affiliate on Monday, including Eau Claire native and former Badger Jake Dowell.
In the team's news release, the Wild wrote that they wanted to add more grit and experience to the roster. Dowell has both of those qualities, according to head coach Mike Yeo.
"I'm not a guy that has a lot of sexy numbers out there, you know, I have a handful of points and I play hard and I do a lot of things that maybe go unnoticed to the untrained eye, and that's kind of something that teammates and coaches and management respect and I think that's what I hope to bring," says Dowell. "You know, play well defensively, and be tough to play against, be a guy that other lines don't want to play against, creates energy, gets a buzz going in the building, and that's something that everybody else can feed off of."
