The Wild’s opening night roster will be announced today, but there was another sign last night that Brett Bulmer would be on it when he was given sweater #19.
Bulmer will become the sixth player to wear number 19, joining the likes of Patrick O’Sullivan, Andy Hilbert, Stephane Veilleux, David Cullen and Jeff Nielsen. Twitter followers of the @mnwild account may want to remember those last names, because there may or may not be a question regarding those names in the near future.
The Wild is set to take the ice at Xcel Energy Center today, and we should learn the opening night roster shortly thereafter. It appears as though Mike Lundin may be the only regular skater who won’t be ready for Saturday’s opener.
