NHL: Minnesota Wild at Winnipeg Jets Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

The Wild travel to Winnipeg for their third preseason game after cutting nine players from training camp.

Training camp continues and the Wild have made some cuts, sending players down to Iowa or releasing them from their PTOs with the big club. We also have more preseason hockey tonight as the Wild take on the Winnipeg Jets.

I hear there are giants up north of the Wall. Hopefully the Wild can find a way to bring them down. Now onto the Walk!
