ST. PAUL -- The seventh season of "Becoming Wild," the Emmy®-award winning television and online series that chronicles a day-in-the-life of a Minnesota Wild player, premieres Saturday, Oct. 14 on FOX Sports North, immediately following the network's "Wild Live" postgame coverage of the Minnesota Wild home opener against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The first of six new television episodes, "Minnesota Wild, Final Road Tune-up," takes fans behind-the-scenes and up close with the team during its final preseason road game against the St. Louis Blues at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo., on Sept. 28, a 3-2 Wild victory.
"Becoming Wild" travels around the globe to give Wild fans unprecedented access to their favorite players from their off-season homes. Viewers get an inside look at life off the ice - their grueling workout regimens, family life, and how they relax and unwind.
The 2017-18 season of "Becoming Wild," presented by Toyota, will feature Bruce Boudreau's Hockey School, Marcus Foligno, Luke Kunin, Gustav Olofsson and Eric Staal.
