FOX Sports North announces Minnesota Wild 2014-15 telecast schedule


FOX Sports North and the Minnesota Wild today announced the telecast schedule for the 2014-15 season.

The telecast schedule begins at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 11, with coverage from Colorado as the Wild take on the Avalanche in the second game of a home-and-home series, an anticipated rematch after the teams’ intense Stanley Cup playoff series last season.

The regional sports network will begin season coverage on Thursday, Oct. 9, with one-hour episodes of Wild Live presented by CenturyLink before and after the Wild’s home matchup versus Colorado (that game is on NBCSN).

The FOX Sports North schedule includes 36 telecasts at Xcel Energy Center and 35 road contests. The Wild’s matchup against Arizona on Saturday, Jan. 17 will be featured as the marquee event for the ninth annual Hockey Day Minnesota presented by Wells Fargo.

The Minnesota Wild telecasts on FOX Sports North will feature play-by-play announcer Anthony LaPanta along with color analyst Mike Greenlay. Tom Hanneman and Jamie Hersch will host Wild Live presented by CenturyLink before and after every game with analysis from Wes Walz, Tom Chorske, Ben Clymer and Kevin Gorg.

FOX Sports North’s schedule includes eight telecasts on FOX Sports North PLUS, an alternate channel made available by most cable and satellite providers.
