Eden Prairie's Nick Seeler Set to Make NHL Debut With Wild

February 12, 2018 03:10 PM

Eden Prairie native, and former Gopher, Nick Seeler is expected to make his NHL debut with the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night when they host the New York Rangers at Xcel Energy Center.

Seeler was called up from Iowa and practiced with the Wild on Monday morning in St. Paul.


"If you don't have nerves, I don't know who you are," Seeler said in anticipation of Tuesday's night's debut. "I definitely have nerves, but I think it's a good thing. I'm going to try to channel that into just playing my game."

"He's more physical," Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau said about Seeler. "He doesn't mind getting involved in any rough stuff. Sometimes he's overexuberant." 

Seeler will be the 11th Minnesotan to make his NHL debut this season and the 25th Minnesotan to ever play for the Wild. He was a two-time state champion at Eden Prairie.
