Let’s go over some news and notes:
- You know what is awesome, though? The Wild are finally going to host a Winter Classic, that’s what! [Hockey Wilderness]
- The Winter Classic isn’t going to simply be a one-day thing, either. It’s going to be a week-long party. [The Athletic]
Off the trail...
- The Wild are in the thick of the playoff race, but if they miss the postseason and get lucky in the draft lottery, they could have a chance to draft the next great player from Quebec. [TSN]
- Corey Perry’s walk of shame, but with a Spongebob twist.
