NHL releases details, ticket prices on outdoor Wild-Chicago game

Ticket prices for the Feb. 21, 2016, outdoor hockey game at TCF Bank Stadium between the Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks were made public Wednesday.

The outdoor rivalry game is part of the National Hockey League's Stadium Series, which the league debuted in 2014. As one might anticipate, tickets aren't exactly cheap.

According to the Star Tribune, the cheapest seats cost $109 and go all the way up to $449 for seats in the Outdoor Club at center ice. The NHL sets ticket prices for the event, not the Wild. But here's the catch, the only way to guarantee yourself a chance to buy tickets to either already be a season ticket-holder or join the season ticket waiting list. Fans can do so right here.

Meanwhile, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, along with Minnesota Wild owner Craig Leipold and Minnesota hockey stars from past and present, like Lou Nanne and Zach Parise, were on-hand at TCF Bank Stadium Wednesday afternoon unveiling full details about the event.

"We are pleased to bring the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series to 'the State of Hockey' as a highlight of the Hockey Day in America triple-header on NBC and NBCSN and as part of USA Hockey's national celebration of our sport, Hockey Weekend Across America," Bettman said, via the NHL's official website. "With so much great hockey having been played on the University of Minnesota campus, TCF Bank Stadium will serve as an ideal setting for this outdoor renewal of the Wild-Blackhawks rivalry."

Parise said it will be "great" to play in the stadium. Mike Reilly, who played in an outdoor game at the stadium as a sophomore with the Gophers, said the ice conditions are different outside but "it's an amazing experience."

Full rosters and coaching staffs for the Wild/North Stars versus Blackhawks alumni game on Feb. 20 were also unveiled. Team Minnesota will feature hockey legends from the North Stars and Wild against some of the all-time favorite Chicago stars. Lou Nanne and Tom Reid will coach the Minnesota team.

Uniforms for the alumni and NHL games will be unveiled later this year, the NHL said.

Minnesota's Stadium Series game is one of two on back-to-back weekends next season. On Feb. 27 the Avalanche and Red Wings will meet at Coors Field in Denver.
