The Minnesota Wild have safely made it to Chicago to play the Blackhawks at 8 pm ET, with guests in tow. The Wild will be spending the next to days in the windy city, along with their fathers and brothers, as a special guest trip which began in 2006.
Soon after the Wild players and their guests arrived at their hotel in Chicago, they made their way to a reception for dinner and a video presentation by the players. In the video presentation, each of the players and coaches talked about how much their guests meant to them and their experiences with them. Nick Schultz, who lost his father last year, is very thankful this father was able to experience him on the road.
This heartfelt presentation meant a lot to the players and their guests, and has pumped them up for the game tonight versus the Chicago Blackhawks.
