  • The Minnesota Wild are moving their primary minor league team to Iowa.
    The Wild made the long-anticipated announcement Thursday that their American Hockey League affiliate will relocate from Houston to Des Moines, starting next season.
    Wild chief operating officer Matt Majka (MAY'-kah) says the organization was unable to agree on terms of a new arena lease at the Toyota Center in Houston. The Aeros have been the Wild's top minor league club in the 30-team AHL since 2001.
    Des Moines is about a 3½-hour drive from the Twin Cities.
