The Minnesota Wild will have defenseman Marco Scandella in the lineup tonight when they play host to the Arizona Coytoes.

Scandella has been out of the Wild lineup since Jan. 6 due to an upper body injury.

Scandella leads all Wild defensemen with nine goals in 34 games this season while averaging 22:17 a night in ice time.

The Wild, who are looking for their first back-to-back wins since a four-game win streak Nov.13-20, have won both meetings with the Coyotes this season.
