CLOQUET, MINNESOTA – JANUARY 17th, 2017- Fresh off of a 3 point weekend on the road versus Aberdeen, the Minnesota Wilderness have moved into sole possession of 2nd place in the NAHL’s Central Division.
The Wilderness, who have not won a regular season division title since joining the NAHL, are eight points behind division-leading Minot Minotauros with 24 games remaining in the regular season. The Wilderness go head to head with Minot seven more times before the regular season concludes. The Wilderness have won one division playoff championship in 2015, the same year they won the Robertson Cup championship.
Of the 24 remaining regular season games, the Wilderness will play 15 of those games at Northwood Credit Union Arena. The Wilderness will travel to Austin this coming Friday (the 20th), then returning home Saturday, Jan 21st to play the same Austin team.
Head Coach Tim Madsen on the remaining schedule: “Our team has been challenged with adversity all season long – nothing has come easy. This is going to make us a stronger team down the stretch. To be able to get 3 out of 4 points, on the road, against one of the hottest teams in the league last weekend tells me that our players are mentally ready to compete for home ice, and the division title.”
Discounted tickets are available at these ticket outlet sponsors starting this Wednesday: B&B Market, Super One Liquor, The Jack, and The Warming House (all in Cloquet, MN). Doors open at 6:00pm on Saturday night vs Austin Bruins.
