The 2012–13 Minnesota Wild season was the 13th season for the National Hockey League (NHL) franchise that was established on June 25, 1997.[2] The regular season was reduced from its usual 82 games to 48 due to the 2012–13 NHL lockout.

The Wild made the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since the 2007–08 season, where they fell to the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round.

Off-seasonEdit

The Wild made a splash in the free-agent pool by signing top free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter on July 4, 2012. Both were signed to 13-year-long contracts.

Regular seasonEdit

On February 26, 2013, Zach Parise scored just 27 seconds into the overtime period to give the Wild a 2–1 home win over the Calgary Flames.[3] Parise tied Marian Gaborik's mark, set on January 23, 2013, when he scored 27 seconds into the overtime period to give the Rangers a 4–3 home win over the Boston Bruins.[4] Both goals would prove to be the fastest overtime goals scored during the lockout-shortened season.[5]

The Wild were the most disciplined team during the regular season, with a league-low 135 power-play opportunities against. They also tied the New York Islanders for the fewest shorthanded goals allowed, with zero.[6]
