Minnesota Wilderness hockey is back. The Cloquet based NAHL team returned to the rink for their first week of training camp on Monday.

About 35 players reported for practice.

Assistant coach Brendan Phelps said that's fewer than usual, but it made connecting skaters with billet, or host, families easier.

The Wilderness are currently focused on getting back in shape ahead of their season opener at Minot on October 16th.

Phelps said they're hoping to pick up where they left off when their season was cut short in mid-March.

"We were at a point where we were playing really good hockey at the end of last season. Now coming into this season we kind of just want to build off of what we did. We have some...returning guys that we're really excited about, and then we got some new comers...that we're really excited for. So we're really looking forward to the season," said Phelps.
