Xcel Energy Center To Host Wild's Minor League Training Camp During Lockout

The NHL lockout will keep most Minnesota Wild players from doing anything at the Xcel Energy Center for the foreseeable future, but that won't stop the team's top prospects from showing their stuff. In fact, the Houston Aeros are holding training camp in St. Paul, bringing a slew of the top Wild prospects to the city.

Mikael Granlund, Charlie Coyle, Jonas Brodin and quite a few others will also be in attendance for a pair of scrimmages open to the public next weekend, according to the Wild blog on the Pioneer Press website:

Just because the Wild aren't opening camp on time - and don't appear to be headed to the ice any time soon - doesn't mean there won't be hockey soon coming to the Xcel Energy Center. The team announced on Thursday morning that the Houston Aeros will begin training camp in St. Paul, giving fans a chance to watch the team's top prospects in a pair of free scrimmages.

So fret not, hockey fans! Hockey players are still going to be showing their stuff in the cities!
