Matt Cullen’s return to his home state will finally be compete when he plays his first regular-season game with the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. The game against Edmonton is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
Cullen, from Moorhead, has a goal and an assist — both coming in the season-opener against Carolina in Finland — in two games this season.
“I’ve been looking forward to opening night since the day I signed,” Cullen said. “It’s gonna be a lot of fun. It’s a big game for us, too. We need to get that first win.”
The Wild are 0-1-1 and the Oilers are 2-0-0.
