Minnesota Wild to move American Hockey League affiliate from Houston to Des Moines

ST. PAUL, Minn. - 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 3 1/2-hour drive from the Twin Cities.
