Full-time Minnesota Wild employees will continue to receive full pay and benefits through April.
Owner Craig Leipold informed staff of the decision via e-mail on Friday. That includes employees of the Wild, the Xcel Energy Center arena, and their AHL affiliate, the Iowa Wild. Those with salaries above $150,000 are taking a 20% pay cut. The guideline does not pertain to Wild players.
Like most teams around the NHL, the Wild also committed to paying game-day arena workers for the six home games that remained on the schedule when the season was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
