ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild will be without goalie Devan Dubnyk for at least another week because of a lower-body injury that forced him out of a game earlier this week.

The Wild announced Thursday before they hosted Toronto that Dubnyk’s status was “week to week,” after he was pulled after one period on Tuesday against Calgary. Alex Stalock filled in for the win against the Flames and started against the Maple Leafs.

With five games for the Wild in a seven-day stretch starting on Saturday against Edmonton, Dubnyk might not play again until after the three-day Christmas break. He’s 12-8-2 this season with a 2.69 goals against average and a .916 save percentage.

To back up Stalock, the Wild recalled goalie Steve Michalek under emergency conditions from AHL affiliate Iowa.
