Scandella fired eight shots on goal, but managed just an assist in Tuesday's win over Chicago. He also went plus-2.

It was a good enough effort to earn him the game's second star, and it also snapped a 10-game point drought dating back to before his IR stint due to a head injury. The eight shots are also one more than Scandella managed in the prior six games combined. Perhaps this is a sign that he's coming around and will start producing more consistently again.

Scandella (head) will be activated from injured reserve and suit up for Saturday's game against the Coyotes.

Scandella had been skating on his own the last few days, but only resumed practicing with the rest of the team during Saturday's gameday skate. Though teams normally feel more comfortable having injured players practicing for multiple days before clearing them to play, Scandella didn't look to be limited during the session, participating fully in all drills. With the blueliner seemingly poised to log his usual 20-plus minutes of ice time Saturday, he's probably safe for fantasy owners to plug back into their lineups. Even after the injury setback, Scandella is still poised to blow past last season's total of 17 points, as he's already amassed nine goals and six assists over 34 contests.

Coach Mike Yeo said after Saturday's loss to the Predators that Scandella (head) wouldn't travel with the team to Chicago for Sunday's game, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Wild aren't expected to hold a practice Sunday morning, so there wouldn't have been an opportunity for the coaching staff to see Scandella back on the ice. Scandella could join the Wild at some point later in their road trip.
