Former Minnesota Wild defenseman Keith Ballard joined me on WJON today to talk about the 2nd annual Wild on the Water Bass Fishing Tournament. The tournament will be held July 13-14 at Izaty's Resort on Lake Mille Lacs.
The Wild finished the regular season with a 45-26-11 record overall and made the playoffs for a sixth straight season. However, the Wild were bounced from the playoffs in the first round for a third straight season and have not advanced past the second round during Fletcher's tenure.
Tonight is a big night for Minnesota sports fans with the Timberwolves and Wild both have big games. The Wolves close the regular season at home against Denver at 7pm tonight, pregame on AM 1390 at 6:30. The winner of tonight's game makes the playoffs while the loser is out.
The Minnesota Wild will play against the Winnipeg Jets in the opening round of the Western Conference playoffs. The 2017-18 campaign marks the sixth straight season that the Wild has made the playoffs.
