According to Bob McKenzie on Twitter:
MIN claims Nick Johnson from PIT on waiversI like the take from the Pensburgh, another Penguins blog I contribute to on SBNation. Johnson was easy for the Wild to take A look at because of familiarity with Chuck Fletcher and head coach Mike Yeo.
Hopefully this becomes a Chris Bourque situation where Minnesota doesn't like what they see and place Johnson back in waivers. That, in a nutshell, is the only way you'll see Nick Johnson in an AHL Penguins jersey.
Otherwise, good luck to Johnson on his NHL pursuit.
We'll have a preview of tomorrow's home preseason game against the Hershey Bears tomorrow afternoon, with live in-game updates on the Twitter side.
