The Minnesota Wild will host one of the fan favorite events this weekend.
On Sunday, Feb. 23, weather permitting, the club will hold an outdoor practice at the John Rose MN OVAL at 11 a.m., presented by Audi Minneapolis and Audi Saint Paul. The OVAL is located at 2661 Civic Center Drive in Roseville and the practice is free and open to the public.
The practice will help the club prepare for its post-Olympic schedule, which resumes in Edmonton on Feb. 27. The practice will follow the Olympic Gold Medal Game, which is earlier in the day.
The John Rose MN OVAL is the largest outdoor refrigerated skating facility in North America, featuring an 110,000 square foot slab of concrete used for the ice sports of speedskating, bandy, hockey, public skating and open hockey in the winter and inline skating in the spring, summer and fall. The OVAL has hosted events such as World Cup Speedskating, World and National Bandy Championships, and Aggressive Skating and Biking competitions.
