The Wild and Blues will play later that night at 8:00 p.m. Ticket information including a special double header ticket package will be announced at a later date.
“We are excited to provide our great hockey fans the opportunity to watch both the Wild and Aeros play at Xcel Energy Center on the same day,” said Assistant to the General Manager/Houston Aeros General Manager Jim Mill.
This will be the third time the Aeros have played a home game in St. Paul. The most recent was in March of 2005 when Houston defeated the Grand Rapids Griffins, 3-1. That game featured Pierre-Marc Bouchard, Brent Burns, Josh Harding and Mikko Koivu on the Houston roster, and Nik Kronwall, Brett Lebda and Mark Eaton on the Grand Rapids roster.
