Minnesota Wild fans stood in line for several hours on Saturday to purchase the first single game tickets at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
Bill Gibbons joined the line more than five hours before the ticket office opened.
"I wanted to see the Pittsburg and Wild game for sure," he said.
Wayne Petersen, the director of community relations and hockey partnerships, said Wild season tickets are sold out and the fan base continues to rise.
"We had a great core group of players last year and we have some new exciting players coming to the team this year," he said. "There is a lot of excitement and optimism for the upcoming season."
