Jaime Sifers is surely on his way to elite SkyMiles status.
The 5-11, 210-pound defenseman/forward has again been recalled to the Minnesota Wild, and will arrive in time to don his Wild No. 26 jersey and play in tonight's game vs. the Nashville Predators at Xcel Energy Center (7:00 PM Central Time; KSTC-45, FSTennessee). This will be the third time that Sifers, signed by the Wild as a free agent July 8, has been recalled by the Wild.
Sifers, returned to the Houston Aeros along with Robbie Earl on Sunday, was recalled due to the uncertain status of Marek Zidlicky, who is expected to return tonight after having sat out last weekend's home-and-home with the Colorado Avalanche, as well as the illness of defenseman Kim Johnsson, who missed practice both yesterday and Monday.
Here's hoping Sifers receives that first-class mileage bonus!
