The 2023 NHL Global Series – Sweden will highlight a record four NHL clubs in one European city for regular-season games and mark the second time the Wild has played regular-season games in Europe. Minnesota participated in the 2010 NHL Premiere in Helsinki, Finland, playing two games against the Carolina Hurricanes at Hartwall Arena. The Wild lost to the Hurricanes, 4-3 on Oct. 7, 2010, and fell 2-1 in a shootout on Oct. 8, 2010. This will mark the first time the Maple Leafs will play NHL regular-season games outside of North America, the second time for the Red Wings and third such trip for the Senators. Each team will play two regular-season games in Stockholm as part of the 2023 NHL Global Series – Sweden.

Minnesota has eight Swedish players on its current roster: Jonas Brodin (Karlstad), Joel Eriksson Ek (Karlstad), Filip Gustavsson (Skellefteå), Marcus Johansson (Landskrona), John Klingberg (Gothenburg), Gustav Nyquist (Halmstad), Oskar Sundqvist (Boden) and Jesper Wallstedt (Vasteras).

To date, there have been 38 NHL regular-season games played outside of North America, including 32 played in Europe.
