Wild finalize 23-man roster


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Wild have finalized their 23-man roster for the regular season.

The Wild made their last round of training camp moves -- reassigning goalie Barry Brust to their primary minor league affiliate in Houston and placing defensemen Kurtis Foster and John Scott on injured reserve.

Foster is recovering from a broken left leg -- suffered last March -- that could keep him out another month or two. Brust was sent down once Josh Harding, the backup to Niklas Backstrom, was cleared to play after getting poked in the eye with a stick during an exhibition game last week.

The Wild open the season Saturday against Boston at Xcel Energy Center.
