Wild tickets will stay same price
ST. PAUL (AP) -- The Minnesota Wild will keep ticket costs the same for the upcoming season, maintaining their average per-seat price of $50.72 for the third consecutive year.
No games were played last season, of course, because of the league-wide lockout that just ended last week with a new collective bargaining agreement between the owners and the players -- paving the way for the NHL to resume operations.
In one of several goodwill gestures and fan-rallying events planned between now and the start of the season, the team won't charge its 16,500 season-ticket holders for the home opener.
The Wild's prices range from $12 to $80 per game, with the average cost ranking roughly in the middle of the pack among the league's 30 teams.
Vikings agree to terms with three picks
EDEN PRAIRIE (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings agreed to terms Tuesday with three draft picks.
They were second round pick Marcus Johnson, an offensive lineman from Mississippi who was the 49th selection overall; fourth round pick Ciatrick Fason, a running back from Florida who was chosen 112th overall; and Adrian Ward, a cornerback from Texas-El Paso who went 219th overall in the seventh round.
