Minnesota Wild Arrive in Finland
The Minnesota Wild have arrived in Finland over the weekend. The team was selected by the NHL because of their Finnish roots - Mikko Koivu is currently the face of the Finland national team as well as the Minnesota Wild, accompanied by Antii Miettinen and Niklas Backstrom. Not to mention the Wild drafted Finnish native Mikael Granlund in the first round this year of the NHL Draft. They are playing a Finnish League team today and will take on the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday and Friday to kick off the NHL season.
