A total of 82 NHL games were scrapped. The players remain locked out as little progress has been reported on a new collective bargaining agreement with the league.

Wild fans had high expectations for this year's team after free-agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter signed with Minnesota. The regular season was supposed to start for the Wild a week from tomorrow with a home game against Columbus.
