WILD HOST BLUES TONIGHT 25 Sep 13

The Wild begin a home-and-home series with the St. Louis Blues tonight at Xcel Energy Center.  The teams will then close out preseason play on Friday in St. Louis.  The Wild are 3-and-1 so far in exhibition play following Monday’s 2-1 shootout victory in Columbus.  The Blues are 2-1-and-1.  The Wild reduced their roster to 28 players.  Eleven players were assigned to Iowa of the AHL including forward Erik Haula.  The team also placed seven players on waivers with the intent of assigning them on Wednesday, including forward Stephane Veilleux.  Fans in Iowa can get their first look at the minor league team one week from today during the Green-White Scrimmage at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.
