Wilderness Walk: Charlie Coyle Days Until Hockey Edition

Enough hockey news to make Monday morning not the worst, maybe. It will still be a Monday morning, but there's hockey to get excited about!

It's really happening, we've made it to the first week of the season. Now we just have to wait until Thursday for the Wild to play a game... So close... yet so far away.

Anyway, let's get the week started on the right foot, and rock out a little.

Wild News

Minnesota Wild: Former seventh-round pick Tyler Graovac looks like a keeper - I like this kid.

Wild counting on defenseman Christian Folin to add physicality - That's nice.

Mike Yeo misses Sunday's practice; Erik Haula, Jordan Schroeder updates - Injury update from practice.

Join Michael Russo, Mark Parrish for Wild season preview event Tuesday - Are you really bored and looking for something to do in downtown Minneapolis Tuesday afternoon? I really love the library, and Gold Medal Park is an absolutely great place to walk around before the weather gets to cold. Or I guess you could go to this.

I thought this chart was pretty cool to look at.
