Life On The Road In The COVID Era

from Sarah McLellan of the Star-Tribune,

If they aren't at the arena for a game or working out on the practice ice, there's a good chance Wild players are staring at their cellphones.

"Uber Eats and DoorDash have been very popular," winger Marcus Foligno said.

A week into its season-opening, four-game trip, which wraps Wednesday at Anaheim, the Wild is starting to get the hang of life on the road in 2021.

New rules have been implemented to stay safe while traveling during the pandemic. Although the policy has restricted players' access to the outside world in between games, it's also increased their bonding time.

"You can't go anywhere, so everyone is together," captain Jared Spurgeon said. "Having new guys on the team, you're able to play cards or just hang around and talk. It's definitely been good for the group."
