Blum was assigned to AHL Iowa on Friday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Blum was recalled by the Wild on Wednesday after the team waived him early in the week, but that was only to provide an extra body on defense for Thursday's preseason loss to the Blues. He's expected to remain at the AHL level for the bulk of the campaign.

Blum was recalled from AHL Iowa on Wednesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Blum was among three players the team placed on waivers earlier in the week, but he'll return to provide depth for Thursday's preseason game against the Blues. Chances are, Blum will head right back down afterward, but he did play in 15 games with Minnesota last season and figures to get another chance at some point in 2014-15.

Blum is one of three players the Wild have placed on waivers.

Blum being reassigned is a bit of a surprise as many had penciled him into the seventh d-man spot for the Wild. It'd be a surprise if he didn't find his way to St. Paul at some point this season though, it's just not clear if he'll be able to make it stick. For fantasy, it's probably best to steer clear of the previously touted defenseman.
