by Dean Spiros / Special to

Xcel Energy Center, the home of the Minnesota Wild, will host the National Collegiate Hockey Conference's (NCHC) Frozen Faceoff championship tournament March 22-23, 2019. Leading up to the Frozen Faceoff, will feature different aspects of the NCHC related to the Wild and Xcel Energy Center. More information, including tickets, is available at the Xcel Energy Center's Frozen Faceoff page.

Wild goaltender Alex Stalock, 10 years removed from his playing days at Minnesota Duluth, said the Bulldogs' rise to prominence in recent years has helped make the alumni golf tournaments a whole lot more fun these days.

While a salute to the Bulldogs' national championships in 2011 and 2018 surely has been -- and will continue to be -- a highlight of the day, raising a glass to St. Paul and the Xcel Energy Center would seem to be in order as well.

Wild's path to the playoffs will come away from home

Five of Minnesota's final eight games come away from Xcel Energy Center, where the Wild has had plenty of success this season

by Dan Myers @MNWildScribe /

ST. PAUL -- The path to the Stanley Cup Playoffs will come on the road for the Wild. 

Following a disappointing five-game homestand where the Wild captured just three of a possible 10 points, Minnesota will have to summon all of its might and reel off some wins away from home if it desires to reach the postseason for a seventh consecutive season.

That's just the reality.

From the Rink: Wild hopes power play stays hot Tuesday against Avs

Minnesota has converted on the man advantage in three-straight games

by Dan Myers @MNWildScribe /

Greetings from downtown St. Paul, where the Wild and Colorado Avalanche will tangle tonight in a crucial battle, with postseason positioning on the line.

Minnesota is wrapping up a five-game homestand where it will try and even its record. Through four games, the Wild is 1-2-1 but has played better of late, earning all three of its points in its back-to-back games over the weekend.

A big part of that success came via the power play, which has now converted in three consecutive games after going six-straight without a single man-advantage tally.

by Phil Ervin /

ST. PAUL -- Six-year-old Mat Robson, his father Stephen and the rest of Mat's select hockey team stared all around the rink in Mississauga, Ontario, but their goaltender was nowhere to be found.

Turns out the kid never showed up for practice. So who got to strap on the pads instead? The coach's son, of course.

Robson hasn't taken them off since.

Despite overtime loss, Minnesota has found its game with nine games remaining in regular season

by Dan Myers @MNWildScribe /

ST. PAUL -- With nine games left in the regular season, the Wild is one point out of a playoff spot.

That's the bad news.
