The Minnesota Wild released their 2018-19 schedule, which opens in Colorado on Thursday, October 4th and features a home opener against Vegas on Saturday, October 6th...

That stretch is followed by a seven-game roadtrip that spans 13 days - the longest roadtrip in Wild history.

The longest homestand of the season runs five games during mid-March.

The Wild's annual "bye week" is immediately after the All-Star Game in San Jose on Saturday, January 26th.  The Wild will be off for eight days during that break - combining the All-Star break and their "bye week" - from January 24th until January 31st.

The Wild play eighteen weekend games - 2 on Fridays, 12 on Saturdays and 4 on Sundays.

The team has not announced an on-sale date nor ticket prices for tickets.
