The Houston Aeros, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Minnesota Wild, dropped their first two games of the AHL season over the weekend.

On Friday, the Aeros opened up the 2012-13 campaign with a 3-1 loss to Charlotte. Defenseman Jonas Brodin scored Houston's lone goal, while goaltender Matt Hackett stopped 35 out of 37 shots in the losing effort. Saturday's result was no different, as the Aeros dropped a 3-2 decision on the road against San Antonio. Forwards Charlie Coyle and Jason Zucker found the back of the net for Houston. Coyle and Zucker assisted on each others' goals, as well.

The Aeros look for their first victory of the season on Friday night, as they host the Texas Stars 7:05 p.m. CT. While the Aeros are the only team in their division not to come away with any points thus far, Texas has racked up four points after winning its first two games.
