It's finally game night WIlderness. After spending all summer waiting and counting down to the first faceoff of the season, GAME ONE of the the 2013-2014 season is upon us.
Rookie Matt Dumba won't be making his NHL debut tonight, but UMD favorite Justin Fontaine will be.
Some fun facts about tonight's game:
- The Minnesota Wild have never lost a home opener at the Xcel
- The Wild roster has 11 1st round picks (Ballard, Coyle, Koivu, Parise, Heatley, Suter, Niederreiter, Granlund, Brodin, Rupp, Dumba)
- Kaptain Koivu could hit 400 career points tonight with a multi-point game
Tonight will also be Dustin Brown's first trip back to the Xcel after nailing Pominville in the head last season. Pominville, as you should already know, signed a 5 year 28 million dollar contract extension this morning.
Let's get ready for puck drop Wilderness.
