Avs Opener Against Wild Expected To Sell Out In Minnesota After Lockout

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota Wild officials say they expect a sellout Saturday when the team opens at home after the lockout that wiped away half the season.

Chief operating officer Matt Majka says strong ticket sales suggest a full house for the 8 p.m. game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Teams across the National Hockey League are working to win back fans after the 119-day lockout.

The Wild are hosting “Wild Wednesday,” featuring a free intrasquad scrimmage at 7 p.m. Fans will get $10 concession vouchers and discounts on Wild jerseys and apparel during the event. Tickets for that scrimmage are already gone.

Single-game tickets go on sale Wednesday morning.
