Cal Clutterbuck was back practicing with the Minnesota Wild today, and the physical forward thinks he could be ready this weekend to play his first game in a couple of weeks.

Clutterbuck suffered a thigh contusion on Feb. 21 in a leg-on-leg collision with Oilers forward Taylor Halla play that got Hall suspended two games.

“I’m making progress,” Clutterbuck said today, via the Star Tribune. “I’m feeling pretty good right now. So I can definitely see (playing Saturday) as a possibility for sure. We still have three days. We’ll take it day by day, see how I feel. But I’m pretty confident right now.”

The Wild is in Nashville Saturday and returns home to face Vancouver on Sunday.

    I wonder if all the Edmonton fans still think Clutterbuck was putting on a show when he was laying on the ice?
