The Minnesota Wild cancelled practice Wednesday in Seattle as the team is reportedly facing a growing COVID-19 issue, according to Mike Russo of The Athletic.

Minnesota defeated the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 on the road Tuesday night and are scheduled to face the Kraken at Climate Pledge Arena on Thursday.
