At long last, Minnesota will finally get the chance to host an outdoor NHL game next season. The Wild will play the Chicago Blackhawks in one of the NHL’s two “Stadium Series” games. The match-up is set for Feb. 21, 2016 at TCF Bank Stadium. “A real thrill,” Wild CEO Matt Majka said. “And happiness. And a little relief maybe, too, because we’ve been waiting a long time.”
The University of Minnesota has raised $65 million toward the athletic facilities campaign, roughly one-third of the original goal.
The countdown to touchdown is officially underway as the Minnesota Gophers take off for Florida Thursday to play in the Citrus Bowl. They face number 16-ranked Missouri. The two teams square off on New Year’s Day at noon on national television. The coaches and players arrived on campus around 8:30 a.m. with their luggage in tow.
