Hello! We here at Hockey Wilderness have a little something prepared for the coming weeks... we've gotten together and are going to be writing about some of our favorite hockey video games. So, get ready for some of us to get our nerd on.
Before we get to the walk- your Minnesota United FC moved to 3-0-1 on the season on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Fury, and puts them in 2nd place for the fall season (1st place in the combined season). Christian Ramirez continued his fantastic season, scoring 2 goals to lead Minnesota to the victory. The MN United game followed an international competition between English champions Manchester City and Greek champions Olympiacos, which Olympiacos won 5-4 on penalty kicks after the regulation time ended in a 1-1 draw.
That said, it's not a slow hockey news day, so let's get to the walk!
