NHL Lockout: League Cancels 4 Minnesota Wild Preseason Games

The NHL lockout continues to spill over into the preseason and spoil fall hockey, and on Wednesday the league officially cancelled preseason games through Sept. 30 to make matters worse.

Four Minnesota Wild games were removed due to the cancellation, including two that were set to be played at home at the Xcel Energy Center against the Dallas Stars and St. Louis Blues. In addition, the Wild are also now forced to miss the first-ever preseason game in the state of Idaho that was scheduled against the Stars on Tuesday, Sept. 25 in Boise.

Three preseason games still remain on the Wild's schedule despite the move, including an Oct. 2 date with Winnipeg that seems likely to be dropped in the coming days if things remain slow. With the both sides of the lockout seemingly comfortable with their decisions at the moment, it might not be long before regular season dates are soon wiped clean from Minnesota's schedule.
