Wade Dubielewicz was recalled by the Minnesota Wild on an emergency basis Friday to replace injured starting goalie Niklas Backstrom.

Backstrom hurt his groin during the morning skate before the Wild's 5-1 loss to Detroit on Thursday night. Dubielewicz backed up Josh Harding on Friday night against Buffalo.

In 29 games with the Houston Aeros of the AHL, Dubielewicz had a 2.62 goals-against average and .898 save percentage. He made 14 saves in a 4-2 loss at Dallas on Feb. 2 in his only appearance with the Wild this season.
