Wild wing Mike Santorelli not in lineup for Blackhawks game vs. Islanders

Mike Santorini has been sidelined for the past two games, but the Wild wing was still in the lineup Tuesday night.

The Wild will open their season Thursday against the Islanders at Xcel Energy Center.

Santorinis injury is the latest to hurt the Wild this season.

Santoreini has not played since Oct. 25 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The center has missed seven games this season with an upper-body injury.

He missed the past seven games with an ankle injury.

Santori, a two-time Stanley Cup champion, has scored 11 goals and added 17 assists for 19 points in 31 games this year.

He’s a two time All-Star, two time Vezina Trophy winner and two time Conn Smythe Trophy winner.
