Falk was assigned to AHL Iowa on Sunday.

Falk has spent time in both Minnesota and Iowa this season. However, he's only made three NHL appearances this year and will be sent down to the AHL so he can get some work on the ice to be better prepared if there's an emergency situation in Minnesota.

Falk was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Friday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Falk's demotion would appear to signal that the Wild plan on having one or both of Jonas Brodin (general soreness) and Christian Folin (illness) to be available for Saturday's game against the Stars. The 26-year-old Falk appeared in two games during his brief stay with the Wild, compiling a plus-1 rating.

With Jonas Brodin (general soreness) unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, the Wild recalled blueliners Falk and Stu Bickel and moved Keith Ballard (illness) and Christian Folin (illness) to IR, giving the team some much-needed healthy bodies on defense. Falk will enter the lineup Tuesday on the Wild's third pairing.

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

Falk 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.

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

A handful of players were added for depth ahead of Thursday's exhibition with St. Louis, leaving the team with one extra skater. Presumably, a defenseman will be scratched, and even if it isn't Falk, he'll likely just head back down after the game.

The Wild have placed Falk on waivers.

The big defender's return to the Wild will be less ceremonious than he'd probably hoped. He'll start the season in the AHL. For fantasy, that means he will not be relevant until he gets a call-up and is able to make it stick.
