The Timberwolves organization was very excited to announce the re-opening of the Timberwolves and Lynx Pro Shop in mid-March 2012. Even with a shortened season, the Timberwolves have done plenty work this year to win back fans. And Minnesota basketball fans can therefore be very excited to have the chance to shop for their favorite, official fan gear directly from the source again. Continue to celebrate the Lynx' championship run in 2011 or pick up a Rubio t-shirt to show your Minnesota pride. Located on the Skyway Level of Target Center and open on weekdays, feel free to drop in on your lunch break or check out the new store when you next take in a game.

The Hockey Lodge is the authentic option for Minnesota Wild gear, and a visit to the Xcel Energy Center's main location is a must for all Wild games. Can't make it to downtown St. Paul? Check out satellite locations in Burnsville Center or Maplewood Mall. Featuring exclusive designs, official player's jerseys and game-used memorabilia, the Hockey Lodge has got you covered. Pick up a new sweatshirt to keep you warm while you're down on the glass waiting for the inevitable fight to break out, or show your Wild spirit more subtly with one of the Wild-inspired jewelry pieces available. The toughest question you'll have to face is whether you want home, away, or third jersey colors.
