Comments: How long is Josh Tordjman going to be in Houston? Or is this like a permanent move?
Reply: Courtney, an injury to Nicklas Backstrom in Minnesota led to one of Houston’s other goaltenders, Anton Khudobin, being recalled by the NHL team. That left just one goalie in Houston – Matt Hackett – so Houston, in turn, recalled Josh. So we probably won’t see Josh come back to us until Backstrom is healthy, thus creating the trickle-down to us here in Bakersfield.
You can stay tuned to www.wild.nhl.com for details on Backstrom, which should foreshadow Josh’s return!
