Peoria Rivermen Chief Operating Officer Jason Penning has announced that Peoria’s game on Friday, February 11, 2011 will be played at 7:05 p.m.  The game with the Houston Aeros was originally scheduled to begin at 6:05 p.m.


The game’s original early start time was to accommodate both teams’ travel to play against one another the next afternoon in St. Paul, Minn.  It was announced earlier this week that the game at the Xcel Energy Center, home to the NHL’s Minnesota Wild, will now be played on Feb. 13 at 1 p.m.


The game is being held as continuation of the Minnesota Wild’s 10th Anniversary Season. Reserved seating tickets for the game are $15 in advance or $20 day of game. Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, Jan. 8, at the Xcel Energy Center Box Office, Wild.com and Ticketmaster.com.


Gates will open at 11:30 a.m., and Minnesota Wild players will be on hand to sign autographs from 11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. Separate tickets for the Wild autograph session will be $10, with proceeds benefitting the Minnesota Wild Foundation.


The AHL matchup will be a showdown of the Wild’s and St. Louis Blues’ top prospects – one day after the NHL teams’ play at Xcel Energy Center.
