Ryan Suter
logs a marathon amount of ice time, currently averaging 28:54 per game. So it’s not surprising when National Hockey League’s ice time leader takes a practice off. As the Wild was at the rink for pregame practice prepping for tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Suter wasn’t on the ice. Don’t worry State of Hockey fans: he was just taking a maintenance morning.

The Minnesota Wild took its longest plane ride of the season today, flying from Toronto to Tampa Bay and boy are their arms tired. Good night everyone, remember to tip your waitress.

If the Lighthouse is a little breezy today, it’s because that was the mood on the ice. Despite 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs last night, the team was in high spirits because, while they won’t come out and say it, the Lighthouse will: Minnesota outplayed Toronto and probably should’ve walked away with a ‘W’.

Darcy Kuemper
will get his first start of the season tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Speaking to the media this afternoon, Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo said that he's earned the start with a strong training camp and wants to see what the young netminder can do in game action. Yeo's full pregame interview will be on WildTV shortly.

When Jason Pominville was leaving the hotel this morning for the arena, several Buffalo fans requested signatures on his old Sabres sweater. After playing nearly 600 games with the Sabres, tonight marks the first time he’ll skate at First Niagara Center as a member of the Minnesota Wild.

The game of hockey is like the Solar System: Humongous big. Hulking players, huge hits, large ice surface and giant arenas. But in a game where bigger is often considered better, the difference between winning and losing is often found in the little things—the details.

Over the course of an 82-game National Hockey League regular season, few games match the feeling of Opening Night. There is always a great opening ceremony, the entire lineup is introduced, the players are chomping at the bit to start meaningful games and State of Hockey fans are jacked like a sixth grader after a six pack of energy drinks.

So with all that as the backdrop, the Minnesota Wild hosts the Los Angeles Kings tonight in the home opener at Xcel Energy Center.

Jake Dowell's on-ice battles are nothing compared to what the Wild forward faces off the ice.

Dowell's father, John, and brother, Luke, are both diagnosed with Huntington's disease, a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder with no cure. The disease slowly diminishes the person afflicted both physically and cognitively until death.
