That’s Wild

  • It’s been a long time, but the Minnesota Wild will be heading to Duluth for some relaxation and practice before the season gets going. After the final preseason game against the Chicago Blackhawks, they will be heading to their quasi vacation home before heading down to southern California to face the Anaheim Ducks in their season opener.

  • ICYMI, Minnesota Wild captain Jared Spurgeon spills his guts about the new make-up of the roster and if he thinks he is going to gel with Alex Goligoski and the rest of the new blue line. [NHL dot com]
  • A very hyped-up prospect, Marat Khusnutdinov rises to the No. 9 spot of our 2021 Top 25 Under 25 ranking and honestly, he would be higher if we did the voting just a couple weeks into his KHL season. [Hockey Wilderness]

Off the trail...
