The Minnesota Wild got some great news regarding one of their better scoring forwards on Friday.

The Wild activated forward Jason Zucker from the injured reserve Friday, and head coach John Torchetti says he will be back in the lineup Saturday against the Buffalo Sabres.

Zucker has been out since suffering a concussion during his team's Feb. 21 Stadium Series game against the Chicago Blackhawks after being hit by defenseman Michal Rozsival.

The 24-year-old needs just four more points to match his career high of 26, which he set only last season.
