Several Aeros get NHL taste tonight

A few of the boys normally in the bomber sweaters will don the Wild sweater tonight and face off against a pretty well loaded St. Louis Blues team in pre-season play.

Starting goalie will be Khudobin, and then DiSalvatore, Irmen, Kalus, Kassian, Milroy, and Smith will play forward with Falk, Fraser, and Noreau on the blue line. The rest are guys who are more likely to be in Minnesota but you can see the full roster here.

You can listen to a PONDcast with my hero Kevin Falness where he has a little chat with Kassian and Noreau and Wild coach Todd Richards right here.

Also, you can listen to the game on WCCO 830 here starting at 7 p.m.

Exciting opportunity for these guys, even though they're likely to get crushed like bugs. Great experience and a guy like Kassian might even get his first NHL fight under his belt, so that's pretty darn cool.

Probably won;t get crushed like bugs tonight. Should be facing the guys from Saint Louis's AHL squad... you know who they are.

Now, are they going to make the Wild squad? Not likely. But they should be able to put on a good show tonight.
