    That's Wild

    There is over one month left of the terrible period of the year where we have no Minnesota Wild hockey to watch or think about. Training camp across the NHL will open in late-September with preseason beginning for the Wild on Sept. 28. We have not that much longer to go until we can really start thinking about hockey some more and call this boring offseason officially over.

    • One of the more interesting blue line prospects the Wild have, Daemon Hunt could really be that solid and young defenseman that extends Jared Spurgeon's career. [Hockey Wilderness]

    Off the trail...

    • After his trade to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Erik Karlsson is extremely eager to start working with the team and play with probably the most purely talented group he ever has in his career. [NBC Sports]
    • Calgary Flames defenseman Oliver Kylington took all last season off due to severe mental health struggles. He opened up about it in a recent interview. [Yahoo Sports]
    • The Tampa Bay Lightning might be even more dangerous this year after getting the three playoff rounds worth of rest. They got shocked with a first-round exit last season but Anthony Cirelli says the team is going to be even better. [NHL dot com]

    While we have to wait a little longer than a month for training camp, we have something coming up a little sooner with the kids. We don't have Traverse City anymore, but I'm pretty sure there will be some kind of thing with them? 

    I know we've done something with the Blackhawks the past couple of years, but with so many AHL teams located in the upper Midwest, and a great number of prospects on those teams, I'd think a tournament of the prospects right in that area with Des Moines, Rockford, Chicago, Milwaukee and a couple of other places would be a real good idea. 

    The affiliates are Blackhawks, Hurricanes, Predators and Wild. That would be a pretty good mix.

    I believe I heard Russo say something about this year the Wild would be hosting Chicago, St. Louis in a round robin play format. Could be a crazy ticket to get with Bedard in town.

    Tickets available to ticket members first, then the public. I'm guessing with standing room maybe 1500 (Tria Arena max capacity seating is 1200).
