    Michalek, 24, is a 2011 sixth round pick of the Wild. This season with Iowa the former Harvard goaltender has gone 6-1-2, with a 2.52 Goals Against Average and .926 save percentage. In his AHL career - all with Iowa - Michalek is 26-20-5 with a 2.61 GAA, .918 save percentage and one shutout.


    Michalek will be in uniform Thursday night - wearing number 31 - for Minnesota as they host the Toronto Maple Leafs at Xcel Energy Center. Alex Stalock, who picked up the win in relief of Dubnyk Tuesday, is expected to be the starter Thursday night with Michalek serving as the backup.


    UPDATE: The Wild have announced that Dubnyk is now out week to week with a lower body injury.
