Once again, we have a post from a great player in Mikko Koivu. Mikko is of Finnish decent and is the current captain of the Minnesota Wild. Mikko is no stranger for being a leader (see below) as he's also captained Team Finland in International competition. In International competition, he's helped Team Finland win silver...

A nice segue into this next post on Jared Spurgeon of the Minnesota Wild. Jared, is a top 4 defeseman on the Wild team, I'd say, along with Mat Dumba, Ryan Suter and Jonas Brodin. Standing at 5'9, Jared is the smallest defesemen on the team with Ryan Murphy coming in a close second (5'... Continue Reading →
Swedish NHL player, Jonas Brodin has been a great pick for the Minnesota Wild back in 2011. He was selected 10th overall where a flurry of defesemen were chosen between 9th and 12th overall. Jonas seems to do the best when he's paired with Ryan Suter as he was in his rookie season. Unfortunately for... Continue Reading →

Andrew Brunette signed this OPC 2008 card which features him in a Colorado Avalanche, but shows him as a member of the Minnesota Wild. I like Andrew's autograph which features a large A and B and jersey number. Andrew is a decent player putting up about 750 points in over 1000 games. Good job Andrew!
Nice! A decent auto from Niklas Backstrom, the goaltender for the Minnesota Wild. Although it looks like the ink didn't stick as well as I had hoped, I'm still very glad he returned my fan mail. Niklas Backstrom is definitely a top goaltender in the NHL and I'm positive he'll be around for years to... Continue Reading →
