Read was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Read played sparingly in his latest stint with Minnesota, and has just one goal in 12 games this campaign. With the team signing coveted free agent Nico Sturm, the 32-year-old was sent down in order to make room for the new addition. Read will likely spend the remainder of the season in the minors.

Read is still with the Wild after clearing waivers and will suit up against the Golden Knights on Friday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

By waiving Read, the club gave itself some roster flexibility, but Zach Parise's (lower body) continued absence from the lineup will keep Read in the NHL for the time being. Once Parise is cleared to play, however, Read should find himself making the trek down to AHL Iowa.

The Wild placed Read on waivers Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Read drew into the last three games for the Wild as a fill-in for some of the injured forwards, but he'll likely head back to the minors with some of the regular forwards nearing a return. Considering the veteran winger tallied just one point (a goal) over 10 NHL contests this season, there's little upside for him from a fantasy standpoint at this stage of his career.

Read was recalled from AHL Iowa on Sunday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Read has bounced back and forth between Minnesota and AHL Iowa several times this season, mostly as injury insurance. The 32-year-old has 15 goals and 33 points in the minors this season, but just one goal in seven NHL contests.

Read was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Saturday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Read was called up under emergency conditions, but the winger descends to the minors after skating to a minus-2 rating in a 6-2 loss to the Panthers on Thursday. This also signals that Luke Kunin (upper body) and/or Victor Rask (undisclosed) should be ready to rock for Monday's game against the Sharks.

Read was summoned from AHL Iowa under emergency conditions Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Read wore out his welcome in Philadelphia, and he's been used sparingly with Minnesota since penning a one-year deal with the club in July of 2018. While he's produced 15 goals and just as many assists through 49 games for Iowa, Read's only averaged 11:32 of ice time through six top-level games this season. As a result, he shouldn't be relied upon for fantasy playoff action.

The Wild assigned Read to AHL Iowa on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Read was emergency recalled to add depth since the Wild only had 12 healthy forwards. His services weren't needed, however, so he'll head back to minors. The Wild may look into bringing Read back up for its upcoming road trip to Florida starting Tuesday in Tampa Bay.

Read was recalled under emergency conditions by the Wild on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The call-up from AHL Iowa will hope to crack the lineup Tuesday against the Predators. Read has often served as a healthy scratch with the big club, also notching a goal for his only point in six games with the Wild this season.

Read scored his first goal of the year in a 4-2 win over the Flames on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Read was playing in his first game at the NHL level since Oct. 29. He added two shots, two hits and three blocked shots in the appearance. His stay in the NHL after Friday's recall is not expected to last long and his playing time is likely to be limited, but the goal may help to persuade coach Bruce Boudreau to give him a longer look.

Read was recalled from AHL Iowa on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Read will likely only provide depth for Minnesota's back-to-back games against Calgary and Nashville on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. In the 32-year-old's last stint with Minnesota, he was a healthy scratch for two games.
