Wild call up Sammy Walker, place Alex Goligoski on LTIR: What it means for their cap situation

The Minnesota Wild recalled right wing Sammy Walker from AHL Iowa on Wednesday afternoon and placed defenseman Alex Goligoski on long-term injured reserve, allowing them to exceed the $83.5 million salary cap and facilitate the call-up. Here’s what you need to know:

Star third-year forward Matt Boldy is expected to be sidelined for two to three weeks with an upper-body injury, creating the lineup hole for Walker.
The Wild are tight against the cap and couldn’t afford Walker’s salary for their first game without Boldy, Tuesday’s 5-2 win over the host Montreal Canadiens.
