The Wild has put out its roster for Thursday’s 7 p.m. exhibition game at Winnipeg.
Goalies Josh Harding and Darcy Kuemper are expected to split the game against the Jets.
Twelve of these 13 forwards will skate: Dany Heatley, Charlie Coyle, Mikael Granlund, Nino Niederreiter (feature on el Nino from today), Kyle Brodziak, Torrey Mitchell, Stephane Veilleux, Zenon Konopka, Justin Fontaine, Carson McMillan, Erik Haula, Zack Phillips and Kris Foucault.
Six of these seven defensemen will skate: Clayon Stoner, Nate Prosser, Matt Dumba, Jonathon Blum, Steve Kampfer, Kyle Medvec and Jon Landry.
The game is not televised. I will offer game updates on my Twitter (@russostrib) account and the game will be called on KFAN by the great Bob Kurtz and Tom Reid.
No update on Jason Zucker today as the Wild has the day off. But he tweaked his groin last night, and with lots of camp left, you can bet the Wild will play it safe.
The Wild will skate here Thursday morning before the group scheduled to travel to Winnipeg departs in the afternoon.
