Minnesota Wild Snapback Hats
One of the most diehard NHL hockey markets outside Canada, it was a shock when the Minnesota North Stars packed up and left the state for the sunnier clime of Dallas. However, with such a loyal fanbase it was only a matter of time before NHL hockey returned to Minnesota.
In 2000 fans got their wish and the Minnesota Wild came into being. The team enjoyed moderate success throughout their first decade of existence, playing a defense-first style of hockey learned under the tutelage of savvy coach Jacques Lemaire. In 2003 they made it all the way to the Western Conference Finals before falling to the Anaheim Ducks.
Today’s Minnesota Wild is a little more offensively oriented than the teams coached by Jacques Lemaire in days gone by. Mikko Koivu, Devin Setoguichi, Guillaume Latendresse and newly acquired superstar Dany Heatley should give the team some offensive punch this season. With stingy Finnish goaltender Niklas Backstrom between the pipes the Wild could be a darkhorse that could sneak into one of the eight coveted playoff spots in the tightly contested Western Conference. Cheer your Wild on as they try to get back to the playoffs. Pick up your Minnesota Wild snapback hat today.
