Actually, it’s going to be “the Wild” in Duluth next week.

The Minnesota Wild will practice at Amsoil Arena on Monday and Tuesday, an Amsoil Arena official said today. Monday’s practice starts at 10:30 a.m. and is closed to the public.

Tuesday’s practice is open to the public. Doors open at 9:45 a.m. Practice will run from 10-11:15 or 11:30 a.m. Standard parking charges will apply.

The Wild last visited Duluth in October 2011, when they spent a week of NHL training camp practicing at the city’s newest arena and team-building along the North Shore.

A lockout that wiped out nearly all of the 2012-13 season eliminated any chance of the team returning for a second consecutive year.

The Wild start the regular season at home Oct. 3 against the Los Angeles Kings.
