The Minnesota Wild are hoping to host an outdoor hockey game in the near future and they hope the NHL picks the Chicago Blackhawks as their opponent at Target Field in a stadium series game to be played next season according to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
“The Wild continues its quest to host a Winter Classic. But there are plans to bring a stadium-series game to Minnesota as soon as next season, Russo writes. The Wild wants the opponent to be the Blackhawks, but the NHL is pushing the Dallas Stars as the opponent. If the game happens, it looks as if it will be played at Target Field.”
