History Of The Minnesota Wild
The Minnesota Wild was founded in June 1997 and entered the NHL in the 2000-2001 season. They aren’t the first NHL team to play in the region as they were preceded by the Minnesota North Stars who played there until they moved to Dallas in 1993 as the Stars. The Minnesota Wild call St. Paul, Minnesota home and are joined in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region by a number of professional sports teams including Major League Baseball’s Minnesota Twins, National Football League’s Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Lynx (WNBA), Minnesota Timberwolves (NBA) and the Minnesota Swarm of the National Lacrosse League. The latter also being owned by the same partnership that owns the Wild.
The move of the North Stars to Dallas prompted local politicians, most notably Mayor Norm Coleman, to start a campaign to attract another franchise to the city of St. Paul. The original plan was to hopefully seek an existing team looking to relocate but plans eventually shifted to establishing an expansion team instead. Bob Naegele, Jr. filled the role as the lead investor and eventually became the majority owner in the partnership that applied for the expansion franchise.
A name-the-team contest announced six finalists in November 1997 and they included Blue Ox, Freeze, Northern Lights, Voyagers, White Bears and Wild. The front office appointments were made soon after and the ball started rolling in the return of professional hockey to Minnesota.
The team colors are Forest green, Iron Rage red, Harvest gold, Minnesota wheat and white. The Minnesota Wild play in the Central Division of the Western Conference.
Top players who have played for the Wild include Marian Gaborik (2000-2009), Andrew Brunette (2001-2011), Mikko Koivu (2004-present), Dwayne Roloson (2005-2008), Sergei Zholtok (2001-2004), Brian Rolston (2005-2008) and Filip Kuba (2000-2006).
The Minnesota Wild has not yet won a Stanley Cup but they have collected a single Division Championship.
