Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk will start Friday against the Nashville Predators after missing two weeks with a lower-body injury, head coach Bruce Boudreau confirmed.

Dubnyk has been out since Dec. 8, at which time he was labeled week to week with the ailment.

Alex Stalock has held down the crease in his absence, posting a 5-4-0 record while maintaining a season-long .915 save percentage.

Dubnyk has a .916 save percentage, backstopping the team to a 12-8-2 record in 23 appearances.
