2014-15 Minnesota Wild Regular Season Schedule

If you haven’t seen it already (then you are probably living under a rock or not a real big hockey fan), here is the 2014-15 Minnesota Wild Regular Season Schedule. I left off the pre-season games cuz I only care about 1 thing – THE STANLEY CUP and those pre-season games do not help get our MN Wild team any closer to Lord Stanley! 

Let’s go Wild 
I hope it’s a Wild Freak kind of season!

Wild Re-Sign Justin Fontaine



The Wild re-signed Justin Fontaine today to a two year contract. For more infOon the deal, here is the always-outstanding Michael Russo from the Star Tribune:

The deal is expected to be worth $1 million annually ($950,000 in Year 1 and $1.05 million in Year 2). Fontaine, the former University of Minnesota Duluth national champion, tied for fourth on the Wild and tied for 12th among NHL rookies last season with 13 goals. That goal total was third-highest ever by a Wild rookie. He had 21 points in 66 games and his plus-6 was tied for second all-time by a Wild rookie.

I personally like the signing. Now if we can also sign Nino this off-season, that would be great! But it sounds life, if you read the article by Russo I linked to, that is likely happening. Fingers crossed!

Thomas Vanek Signs With Minnesota Wild

Possible foreshadowing of what was to come in the future? Here is Vanek, Parise and Suter all together before they were in the NHL
Chuck Fletcher has done it again. The Minnesota Wild signed Thomas Vanek today to a three year 19.5 million dollar deal, and in doing so brought the former Golden Gopher back to the State of Hockey.

As if you needed another reason to come out to the X, now you have another – to see the Austrian-born left-winger who led the Gophers to a national championship 11 years ago. For more info on the deal, here is the always excellent Michael Russo of the Star Tribune:

He has a full no-move clause and left money and term on the table from other teams. He'll earn $5.5 million in 2014-15, $6.5 million in 2015-16 and $7.5 million in 2016-17. He'll wear No. 26. 

Don’t know about you guys, but, as others have already said, we think this deal is vantastic.

Minnesota Wild Select Alex Tuch in First Round of 2014 NHL Draft


In the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft, the Minnesota Wild took RW Alex Tuch from the USA U-18 Development Team. The youngster shows a lot of promise and appears to have a bright future ahead of himself. Here are some quick bullet points about the kid, via nhl.com:

-In 2013-14, his second season with the U.S. National Team Development Program, Tuch tied for the under-18 team-lead with seven game-winning goals and a plus-35 rating. He ranked third on the club with 64 points (29-35—64) in 61 games.

- A two-time medalist with Team USA, Tuch won gold at the 2014 Under-18 World Championship (0-3—3 in seven games) and bronze at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge (1-3—4 in 6 games). He was also part of the U.S. Under-18 team that finished first at the 2012 Four Nations Tournament.

-Growing up, he idolized his neighbor, Tim Connolly, a Syracuse native who played 11 NHL seasons with the New York Islanders, Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs.

-In 2011-12, Tuch set the Empire Junior Hockey League scoring record with 101 points (44-57—101) in 40 games as a 15-year-old.

-He has committed to Boston College for the fall of 2014: “Boston College has always been my dream school. I can remember watching them in the Frozen Four when I was six

Wild Coach Mike Yeo Recieves Contract Extension



And we couldn't be happier. The man deserves it after taking the team into the second round for just the second time in franchise history and posting a total record of 104-82-26 in his first three seasons at the helm.

Here is what Yeo had to say in a release posted on the Wild's website:

”I am very excited to continue to coach the Minnesota Wild and pursue a Stanley Cup for the State of Hockey,” said Yeo. “Our fan support has been amazing and it went to a new level during the playoffs this season. We are all motivated to reward them.”

Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher praised Yeo for the work he has put in over the past three seasons and also said in the release that the organization looks forward to Yeo's ongoing leadership as head coach.

WILD WIN! - Making the Series 2-2

WHAT A GREAT GAME FOR THE MN WILD! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time!

The Minnesota Wild was leading by a goal with just over two minutes to go, we was down two men thanks to a hooking penalty on defenseman Jonas Brodin and Colorado’s empty net. It looked like the Avalanche had a great chance to tie. But the Wild hung on to beat Colorado 2-1 in Game 4 and even the series at two games apiece!

What's up next? Game in Colorado on Saturday.


GO WILD, GO!
