Wilderness Walk 9-16-2013: 1 More Sleep till Hockey Edition

Christian Petersen

The Wild opened their doors this weekend to the fans for a practice on Saturday and inter-squad scrimmage on Sunday. It is now Monday, and just 1-day away from the start of the pre-season schedule.

Good morning Wilderness. It is quite the cold morning but that should not discourage you any. It only means that the hockey season is nearly here, just over 2 short weeks away from regular season games! I cannot tell you how much easier this is to do when there is actual Minnesota Wild related links to post.

Yesterday the Wild opened their doors to the public for a scrimmage at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. A few thousand of you skipped out on football for the day and enjoyed Team White against Team Green. Indeed it was a wise choice you made.
