The Wild's Skills Competition this past weekend raised so much money for the Minnesota Wild foundation and brought in more than 8,000 fans! The foundation's proceeds go to children's medical facilities, education programs and spreading the joy of hockey all across the state, so this is really a great cause. Good job hockey fans! If you missed out on the competition, the highlights are on the Wild's website
On a side note, the Wild's game vs. the Red Wings was intense last night! My friend is in the ROTC through the U of M and was the guy who handed of the hockey stick and flag. It was his first game EVER (crazy...i know) so I'd say he had a great first impression! Wild are playing the Avalanche tonight. I expect you to watch and report back!
