The Wild set its season ticket prices for next season, and there is an average increase of 4.5 percent.

“We’re continuing to provide an improved product, and along with that sometimes comes a price increase,” COO Matt Majka said.

Per-game prices for season ticket packages range from $23 to $92.

Majka said the average price of NHL ticket increased 12 percent over the past three years when Wild season ticket prices have remained the same.

Prices for single-game tickets will be revealed in August.

Lynx’s roster set

The Lynx cut free agent Shawnice Wilson, a 6-6 center from Miami (Fla.) on Thursday, bringing the team’s roster to the regular-season 11-player limit.

Making the team were three rookies, guards Lindsey Moore (the 12th overall draft pick) from Nebraska and Sugar Rodgers (14th) from Georgetown and forward Rachel Jarry of Australia. A fourth new player is center Janel McCarville, acquired in an offseason trade.
